MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Six children are in protective custody after a young boy was found chained in a backyard shed behind his Memphis, Tennessee home.
Neighborhood friends say they told their mothers about a boy locked up in a shed long before Memphis Police made the discovery.
Randale Golden says he spoke to the boy after his ball bounced into the yard.
"I said what you on the chain for? He said my daddy put me on there," said Golden. Through this shed window he and a friend say they saw a boy locked up by chain inside. "Right here, right around his waist and he was sitting on the floor."
Memphis Police made a similar discovery Thursday after a 911 call from a sibling inside the house. The boys say they told their mothers about what they saw a while ago.
"It's been going on for like a long time," noted Golden.
