Police called it one of worst crimes they’d ever witnessed. A 5-year-old boy held in a tiny cubbyhole in a closet under the stairs. 

Jordan Bleimeyer was starved and abused, and was just 29 pounds when he was rescued. Dr. Phil went inside his closet of horrors when this story broke and exclusively interviewed his stepmother, Tammi Bleimeyer, who is now behind bars. She denied she ever hurt Jordan — but her children tell a different story. In an exclusive interview, they reveal how they snuck Jordan food and helped free him from his closet prison, saving his life.
