Kidnapped girl found 18 years later

well not found so much as walked into a police station with two children allegedly fathered by her kidnapper who was assisted by his wife

wow

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8225621.stm

the stepfather saw the kidnap happening too.

Maybe all those missing children like Ben Needham do have a chance of being found eventually

poor, poor girl

I'm hoping for more details. News said she was 29? I'm wondering what she was doing/thinking in the years since she turned 18.

ETA: okay the sex offender who abducted her got 2 kids on her, and kept them all in a backyard shed.

Sick sick bastards. For those of you who don't believe there is a place for torture in our "civilized" society, I present you with *drumroll* kidnappers.

The reunion with her real parents has got to be very strange. After all the hugs you're just standing there, staring at someone who is essentially a stranger.

I am fascinated with this story. Thinking of the step-dad trying to chase down the car, seeing the mother's news plea for the return of her daughter...

Man, what freaks, from what little I've caught it seems kidnapper man (who had already been convicted of rape at the time of this girl's abduction) is just talkin' talkin' talkin'. Ain't no thing, ya know?

yeah, he said he completely turned his life around, and "get ready for a heartwarming story."

What B.S. And the wife? Just sat around and let her pedophile husband imprison and rape this girl?

People are so strange.

I cannot BELIEVE he said the thing about the heartwarming story. I read that and thought "you fricking freak!"

I'm sure I'll feel all fuzzy inside when that little Hallmark Hall of Fame story hits Lifetime.

I'm wondering what kind of "literature" he was trying to pass out at Cal. The news said he didn't know what it was. WTF?

I read in a couple of different articles taht it was religious literature - he thought God spoke to him through a box, and that he could read people's minds. And of course that what he had done was God's will. What a winner.

Wonder if his wife is schizo, too.

Shouldn't there be some kind of rule: "I'm sorry, you're a psycho fuck, and you're a psycho fuck. There can only be one psycho fuck in any marriage at any given time. Plus, you're both ugly. New legislation requires that one of you jump off a cliff and the other one stand in front of a speeding train. NEXT?"

Like Elizabeth Smart's captors, who are both too deranged to stand trial.

Another reason to dislike religion.

You probably dislike Jodie Foster too, using that logic.

If it wasn't religion, it'd be some other damn thing. Crazy comes in many forms.

How in the world is this girl going to restart her life? I can't imagine what she's going to tell the kids when they're older--I have friends who were born of rape that turned out ok, so it's certainly possible...but still.

The guy should be on death row. No pardon. Too many criminals are getting off on "whoops, sorry, I was insane."
