Woman felt 'like a fly trapped in a spider's web'

The youngest of the three alleged slavery victims is said to have written letters to a neighbour, telling of her life as being "like a fly trapped in a spider's web".

The woman became infatuated with neighbour Marius Feneck, 26, the Guardian said, reportedly writing him more than 500 letters in seven years.

One letter apparently tells of how she suffered "unspeakable torment" behind locked doors and windows, and of how she was terrified that her captors - "these evil criminals... who dare to call themselves 'my relatives"' - might do something to him.
