28-Year-Old Lady Prison Guard Falls For Violent Rapist
British prison officer Lisa Harris, 28, had found the man of her dreams. His name was Daniel Lynch, and he was a 33-year-old dream boat with big muscles and a baby face. Last February, they had a month-long whirlwind affair where they traded loads of loving text messages (“I miss you, can’t wait to see you and hold you. Sweet dreams.”), talked on the phone for hours, and met for a few secret rendezvous. He even referred to her as “princess.” But there was one downside to her new man—he was in prison. Her prison. And not for white collar crime. In 2008, Lynch stalked British TV presenter Katie Piper, abducted her, and raped her for more than eight hours in a hotel room. As if that weren’t traumatizing enough, after arrested, he arranged for a friend to throw acid in Piper’s face—she was blinded in one eye and severely scarred. I mean, how could you not fall for this guy?
Sadly, Harris’ love affair ended when she was caught sneaking a cell phone in to Lynch. Apparently, it was the second she’d given him — after she was arrested, it was discovered that she’d texted the second phone and warned him that their jig was up. She resigned from her post and is currently being charged with three counts of misconduct in a public office. Talk about inappropriate relationships. [Daily Mail]
