A mother kept her 26-year-old daughter locked up in a small room in Rosenheim, Germany, "possibly for years," police said Tuesday.
She was discovered living in "shocking circumstances" in a trash-filled apartment after her 54-year-old mother plunged several stories down the building's stairwell and was seriously hurt. Investigators believe the older woman, who was about to be evicted, was attempting suicide.
A police spokesman told NBC News that officers discovered the woman's daughter behind a locked door in the rundown apartment. The younger woman is believed to have autism.
