The young woman kept as a ‘slave’ all her life became obsessed with a neighbour, writing him scented love letters and sending him photographs of herself, it was claimed last night.
The 30-year-old allegedly held captive by a cult-like Left-wing commune along with two older women was seen as ‘spooky’ by neighbours but did have some limited contact with the outside world.
She is said to have sent hundreds of love letters to neighbour Marius Feneck who lived two floors above her at the block of flats in Brixton, South London.
In one of the heat-rending notes, in which she addresses him as her 'beloved sweetheart', she warns him not reply or talk to anybody about it because she feared he captors would do something 'evil' to him.
He showed seven photographs of a slim, brunette woman with pale skin, wearing Western clothes, claiming she stuck them on his door to ‘tempt’ him.
Mr Feneck’s girlfriend, Rachael Price, 25, said the girl, who they knew as ‘Rose’ had been writing him love letters for seven years, posting them when she walked to the local Tesco supermarket with her alleged captors.
‘They were scented and she would walk slightly behind the old couple as they passed the building’s letterboxes on the ground floor, so she could slip them in our letter box.
‘In them she said she loved him and wanted to be with him for ever. There must have been about 500 letters sent to him over the years, some with lipstick kisses on them, and they were deeply obsessive.
Miss Price said the alleged captive had recently written her a ‘vile letter’ falsely accusing her of attacking Mr Feneck.
The case came to light after the Irish woman rang the Freedom Charity last month to say she had been held against her will.
The Malaysian woman is believed to have suffered a stroke but was being denied mdeical care.
Freedom Charity founder Aneeta Prem said: 'These women have had traumatic and distributing experiences, which they have revealed to us.
Police were last night guarding the address where it is believed the three women – aged 69, 57 and 30 – were kept for some of the 30 years they spent in captivity.
Lambeth Council was under pressure last night to reveal how much it knew about the women, rescued last month from a housing association flat where they were living with two suspected illegal immigrants from Tanzania and India.
The suspect man and woman, both 67, were arrested on Thursday but released on bail after being questioned over false imprisonment and immigration offences.
Neighbours said they often saw a young woman who lived at the property staring out of the window or accompanying an elderly couple to the shops.
The woman, apparently born in Britain and called Rose, allegedly tried to become close to a man living in a nearby flat – and was jealous of his girlfriend.
The young woman and her alleged captors lived in a ground-floor flat in the housing association block, which is thought to have been built only a decade ago, along with the two older women. Police are looking for other properties the group previously lived in.
The commune collapsed but the two women continued to live with the suspects and were subjected to ‘emotional and physical abuse’.
Police said they were so in thrall to their captors they initially refused to let police arrest them after they were rescued.
‘Rose’ is thought to have lived with them all her life but her birth was registered with the authorities – prompting questions as to why health visitors or school bosses never checked up on her. Last night Lambeth Council refused to comment.
