“When we entered the apartment, we thought that we found ourselves on a landfill. The stench was unbearable. The child was living under insanitary conditions. There were many animals in the apartment – cats and dogs – and it seemed that the girl had been raised by those animals,” a police officer said.

Natasha was found after an anonymous caller tipped police that Natasha was living in "inhumane conditions".
