Complaint / review text:
Elenore "ELLA" STEIN lives on the Circle S ranch, SALOME, ARIZONA 85308, which is 110 miles NW of Phoenix, Arizona. For 28 years, she and her husband Leo Stein, now deceased, operated the Circle S Boys ranch. Ella and Leo were busted by the Arizona and California DPS and shut down in 1978, having been found GUILTY of many crimes against minor children.
Ella sexually molested many of the young boys, and physically beat them as well.
ELLA STEIN denied these children their civil rights, by not allowing, them to receive mail, watch TV or radio, read newspapers or use a telephone. The children were not allowed ANY contact with their families, and in fact, ELLA STEIN brainwashed the kids to believe that their families had "abandoned" them, and that, IF they didn't comply with ALL her wishes, ELLA would keep them there until they were 21 years old.
SInce many of the kids were "clinically retarded", and the others very young, the children were SCARED to death of ELLA STEIN.
ELLA STEIN kept these minor children "locked down" 24 hours a day on her remote and isolated "ranch". ELLA STEIN used and abused these kids, using them as her personal slaves. The kids were made to serve her, her perverted husband, LEO STEIN, and her 4kids, LESLIE, LAURA, BOBBY, and Carolyn, as slaves or indentured servants. Ella Stein required the young boys to mow her lawn, pull weeds, dig ditches, water her plants, feed her animals, mop her floors, wash dishes, and labor outside in the 110 degree heat. The children had NO air conditioning.
At the end of the day, LEO STEIN and ELLA STEIN made the children have "group therapy", which consisted of ELLA and LEO STEIN humiliating the chldren, calling them unspeakable names, administering rutual beatings and sexual abuse. The boys were made to tell ELLA STEIN how badly they wanted to "f*k her". LEO STEIN sat by and smiled approvingly, telling the boys, "it is perfectly normal to want to f*k my wife".
The children were NEVER allowed ANY contact with the outside world. If you get "google earth", and google, Salome, Arizona 85308, you will be amazed at how isolated this place is. Further, it was far more isolated in the 50's, 60's, and 70's, as ELLA STEIN molested, humiliated and beat children for 3 decades.
ELLA STEIN tells people she ran a "school". This is a patent lie. ELLA STEIN ran an EVIL business where she tortured, abused and battered children.
