Holy God. If it happened in America, you'd know what happened. Dude was picked up by the cops, and they lost him in the system. Then they dumped him when he got too expensive to keep. Jails get paid by the state per prisoner, so dishonest sheriffs are a thing here. (They do keep the prisoner's clothes & things in his pockets to give back on release, at least they're supposed to.) Is it possible something similar happened in Romania? If he has dementia, he can't point to his captors so they're going to get away with their crap. Truly sad!
