    Fell in love with the “wrong” man and paid dearly for it. The debutante’s mother locked her in a small room for 25 years…
    This is the incredible story of 25-year-old Blanche Monnier, in Paris, 1876. Her love for an older lawyer has taken away years of life. I don’t had the approval of her mother and one day he just disappeared. I saw her again. The mother and brother of the mourned and moved on. They were hiding a terrible secret.
    On May 23, 1901, a mysterious letter arrived at the district attorney. It was unsigned. “I have the honour to inform you of an extremely serious event. I speak of a spinster who is locked up in the house of Madame Monnier. He is malnourished and lives in the trash for the last 25 years. In her own filth”.
    Shocked by the letter, the authorities decided to investigate the case. They entered the house and searched. The strong smell from the top floor led to a malnourished woman who was sitting on the bed and was covered with food and feces. Couldn’t cope with the light that came in and was not seen for the last 25 years.
    Blanche Monnier weighed only 25 pounds. He was locked in the attic for a quarter of a century. I had seen a light or another human being all these years. “The unfortunate woman was lying completely naked on a rotten straw mattress. Around her had formed a kind of crust of feces, meat, vegetables, fish, and rotten bread. The odor was so strong that we couldn’t continue our research,” noted a man who participated in the surveys.

    The authorities went to cuffs in Madame Monnier, which had won award for generous contribution to the city. He died in prison 15 days later after he confessed what he had done to the police. It all started when he asked her to end the relationship with the lawyer. The testimonies of the continued even when he died, the lover of 1885. Her brother Marcel was sentenced initially to 15 months in prison and then acquitted with the claim that Blanche could have left at any time but chose not to. Blanche Monnier, also known as La Séquestrée de Poitiers in Paris, died in 1913.
