Kayla Mueller’s parents Carl and Marsha Mueller have told ABC news that they were told by the government their daughter was severely tortured and that she was considered as the property of al-Baghdadi.
“We were told Kayla was tortured, that she was the property of al-Baghdadi, we were told that in June by the government.”
The news agency further states that after the kidnapping, Kayla Mueller was held captive in the home of a top ISIS commander Abu Sayyaf with whom al-Baghdadi would make contacts for the abuse.
US officials have told the news agency that it was during these visits that al-Baghdadi would sexually abuse Kayla Mueller.
US officials have said that this information was gathered after taking statements from two Yazidi girls who were being held as sex slaves in Abu Sayyaf’s compound.
Mueller, 26, was murdered by ISIS earlier this year after spending 18 months in their captivity.
She was kidnapped by ISIS gunmen after leaving a hospital of Doctors Without Borders in Aleppo, northern Syria in August 2013.
