Texas authorities freed four men Friday who they said appeared to have been held captive in a north Houston home -- some in a garage-turned-prison -- where the men may have been forced to turn over disability and veterans' checks.
One man has been detained in connection with the investigation, which was triggered after police received a tip, Houston Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva told reporters.
Investigators also are looking into whether four women found at the home were captives, she said.
Authorities are still trying to determine the ages and identities of the women, three of whom police characterized as suffering from a combination of physical disabilities and mental illness. The fourth was identified as a caregiver, Silva said.
Three of the four men -- who are ages 80, 74, 65 and 50 -- were found in the garage and were severely malnourished, Silva said. They were taken to an area hospital for treatment, while a fourth man, who was found inside the house, was taken to the police station to make a statement, she said.

I can't believe he got away with it for so long. I hope he rots in prison just like he made his captives do.
