Torture Suspect Busted in Berkeley

The reported aunt of a teenager who was found in Tracy with wounds on his body and a chain locked to his ankle was arrested on College Avenue yesterday, in connection with an investigation into claims that the boy was tortured and held against his will. Caren Ramirez was picked up and transported to San Joaquin County, as Tracy police look into the boy’s allegations. A Tracy couple that allegedly imprisoned the boy were also arrested; the Trib reports that they will probably be arraigned on charges of torture and other crimes.
