Mind Control ~ Girl Back Home After 10 Years
This was just on the News yesterday in Pittsburgh. Unreal Story.
MCKEESPORT, Pa. (March 23) -
For 10 years, Tanya Nicole Kach says she was told that her parents didn't want her, that she was stupid and no one cared about her by the middle school security guard who was keeping her in his home.
10 Years Gone
It took her a decade to build the confidence to come forward, but on Wednesday she finally learned the truth as she hugged her father, Jerry Kach, in a tearful reunion.
"He's crying, I'm crying. All he kept saying was, 'I got my baby,'" said Kach, now 24, clutching her father's hand. "I'm touching blood, and I get to say, 'I love you, Dad.'"
Kach said she was looking forward to seeing her mother on Thursday for the first time since February 1996, when her parents reported her missing.
For a decade, Kach had been living at the home of Thomas Hose, 48, in the same town where her father lived in a home about two miles away. She had met Hose at her middle school, where he worked as a security guard.
Allegheny County Police Superintendent Charles Moffatt said Kach wasn't allowed out of the house for the first four years she lived with Hose in a home he shared with his parents since 1996.
She was made to stay in the bedroom when visitors were over "She had no contact with people, other than the people that were in the home,"
Kach wasn't being held against her will, Moffat said, but Hose used "mind games" to control what she wore and where she went and to convince her that her parents, who are now divorced, didn't care about her.
He said the girl had help changing her appearance shortly after she disappeared but wouldn't elaborate.
Kach described to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review how she was manipulated as a teenager.
"You're stupid. You're immature," she said Hose told her. "Nobody cares about you but me."
Hose was jailed Thursday on charges of statutory sexual assault and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.
His attorney, James Ecker, said Hose didn't force Kach to live with him.
"I don't think you'll find anybody in these United States who says she was held against her will," Ecker said.
For the last six months Kach would visit J.J.'s Deli Mart two blocks from where she lived in a Pittsburgh suburb, police said. Kach, always neatly dressed, befriended the convenience store owner Joseph Sparico and his family.
Then, earlier this week, she told Sparico something extraordinary. "'My name is not Nikki Allen, it's Tanya Nicole Kach,"' he recalled her saying in a frightened voice. "
"If you go to a Web site for missing children, you will see me there.'"
Sparico said Kach told him she wasn't allowed out after dark, and that she thought nobody wanted her other than her boyfriend, who threatened her.
He called his son _ a retired police officer who recognized Kach's name ~~ and a missing children hot line, helping to reunite the woman with her family.
"She wanted to be wanted, that's all," Sparico said. "She'd come up to get a pop, a tea, a paper ... she'd confide in me."
A woman who answered the phone at Hose's house Thursday morning said, "They're not talking," and hung up.
Kach plans to meet with her mother, Sherri Koehnke, who remarried while her daughter was missing.
It's the best ending I could have thought about when I thought about what could have happened to her," Koehnke told WTAE-TV. Kach's father, Jerry, said, "I just say thank you, there is a God and he brought my little girl back home."

This is a tough one. How do you keep someone in a house for four years?

Very very sad. She'll need a lot of love and professional help for many years. He should go to prison for many years (forever), and be thrown in with a sign around his neck "I Abused Children".

This is so disturbing that it defies belief. If someone did this to my little girl, they would not have to worry about prison.

I am so tired of hearing everyday of yet another sick individual that has abused a young person in some way- there truly is no punishment appropriate for those who choose to violate the trust and injure the minds and lives of those so innocent and vulnerable. Enough is enough- may God have mercy on their souls.

The BGs Lawyer Jim Ecker
Jim Ecker is a real Hot Shot Lawyer in PGH. He takes a lot of really high profile cases.
He used to live on my parents street. Damn...he defends some some real Total Aholes though. I know that somebody needs to defend them but, these known guilty sickos get a bit too much high quality defending.
Just my opinion.

How can a scum-bag like this afford a hot-shot lawyer on school janitor wages?
That said, he does deserve a fair trial followed by a first class hangin' (the scum-bag...not the lawyer... )
