A little girl known across America as “the world’s most abused child” is secretly conducted by scientists after she is rescued by the police.
After spending her short life after being abused by her father, Genie will reportedly be “exploited” again by teams of scientists eager to investigate her behavior.
When she was rescued by welfare officials in 1970, Genie – given a pseudonym to protect her identity – suffered such severe abuse and neglect from her mother and father that she was unable to speak or walk.
Jenny, only 20 months old, was locked in her bedroom by her father, Clark, who suspected she was mentally disabled.
During this they tied her in a handmade straitjacket and tied her to a chair in their suburban home.
The little girl was either tied to her toilet or completely naked in her crib.
During the night she was locked inside a crib with a wire cover.
Whenever she raised a noise, her father would bark at the little girl or beat her mercilessly.
Clark had forced her daughter into a life of social isolation, not allowing her mother and brother to speak with her.
Ginny was also left severely malnourished after eating an almost entirely liquid diet.
Her toys were containers of cheese, copies of TV Guide stripped of pictures and plastic raincoats.
The 13-year-old girl, who spent her short life tormented by her family, was then subjected to covert experiments by psychiatrists, linguists and psychologists, who saw her as a “natural experiment”.
Genie’s case was so scientifically important that the US government paid a team of scientists to help answer many of the questions he posted.
At the age of 13, Genie’s mental age was 12 to 18 months.
Because Genie had heard almost no words except for the phrases “stop it” and “no more,” he would be a fountain of knowledge for scientists who wanted to learn more about childhood development.
After a long hospital stay, Genie was handed over to live with scientists and foster parents until her 18th birthday.
At first, Ginny was placed in the care of the hospital’s rehabilitation physician – Jean Butler.
In that short time, Jinn flourished but unfortunately was unable to stay for long due to the policy of the Department of Public Social Services, which forbade patients to stay in the homes of hospital staff.
Ginny is then taken home from the various physicians he met at a Los Angeles hospital.
She spent the rest of her childhood attached to hospital machines and participating in experiments with scientists who were parental caregivers.
A man who worked on Genie’s case described her teenage years as a clear example of abuse.
“What I saw happening to Genie was a very cruel form of exploitation,” said the unnamed person.
“I had to feel like I was a part of it and vowed to abstain.
“It turns out that the genie, who was abused a lot, was exploited again.
“She was exploited extra-family the way she was exploited familially—only by a different cast of characters, of which I’m sorry to say I was one.”
As Ginny’s condition worsened, her mother decided that the scientists had become too close to the girl and filed a lawsuit against them.
The court had barred him from seeing experts conducting secret experiments on him in the name of science.
At age 18, Ginny moved back in with her mother, but was soon transferred to an adult care home.
Genie’s whereabouts are unknown to this day but reports have claimed that she was hiding in an institution in Los Angeles.
