- I bet we'll hear a hell of a lot more about this story in the days to come. I immediately thought of Shawn Hornbeck. If you know that name, you'll see what I mean.
From there, things just got weird.
The 17-year-old said he'd been kidnapped and held hostage for a year. According to police in Tracy he looked it -- they told local media that the kid "was emaciated, battered and bruised."
The teen was taken to a local hospital.
Police have since arrested a man and woman in association with this bizarre case. They removed two children from the couples' house on Tennis Lane in Tracy and took them into protective custody.
The unnamed 17-year-old told police he'd been held in that house, possibly since he ran away from a Sacramento group home a year ago.
Like I said -- expect to hear more about this one soon. [CBS13.com]
