Woman Admits To Kidnapping Baby From Hospital 23 Years Ago

Imagine being 23 years old and finding out that your mother is not actually your mother. Devastating, right? Now imagine that you find out that she kidnapped you from a hospital. That’s, like, beyond. This insane scenario is a reality for Nejdra Nance, born Carlina White. The woman she knew as her mother, Ann Pettway, has finally confessed her crime to the FBI.What would possess someone to kidnap a 19-day-old baby and raise her as your own? Ann claimed she had several miscarriages and feared she would never become a mother. Uh, I’m thinking that excuse won’t hold up too well in court. Her err in judgement may earn her life in prison, not to mention the pain she has caused Carlina and her biological family. [People] Keep reading »

Brandon Adams Gives His Version Of The Jeremy London Alleged Kidnapping

Brandon Adams, 26, is currently in in jail with his bail set at $500,000. He’s been accused of kidnapping actor Jeremy London at gunpoint and holding him for 12 hours, forcing him to buy beer and to smoke a pipe.

Here’s how Adams’ narration of the night’s events go… Keep reading »

The Jeremy London Kidnapping Case Gets More Twisted

Wow. The more we hear about Jeremy London’s alleged kidnapping, the stranger and stranger the whole thing seems. Here’s what we’ve learned since the initial report: everything went down when Jeremy and his on-again-off-again wife, Melissa London, decided to go for a (romantic?) dinner at Jack in the Box. When they came out, they had a flat tire. Two dudes helped them change it, and then asked for a ride home. Jeremy obliged, but dropped Melissa off first because she felt uncomfortable. That’s when things supposedly got crazy. After Melissa got out of the car, one of the men allegedly pulled out a gun and held it to Jeremy’s head. They supposedly robbed him of an envelope full of cash, and forced him to drive around for 12 hours, threatening to find his three-year-old son, Lyrik, if he didn’t comply. They made him buy alcohol and drop it off with other friends. At one point, they tried to force Jeremy into the trunk, but he talked them out of it. Jeremy claims they did, however, force him to smoke an unidentified drug, screaming, ““Hit this! Hit this or I’m gonna kill you!” Eventually, the men had him drive to one of their sisters’ houses, who helped Jeremy escape. Near the end of the ordeal, the kidnappers supposedly said, “We were just kidding with you.”

Nearly everyone, including us, thought this story sounded highly suspect at first—like Jeremy’s way of explaining away drug use since he’s required to submit to testing to get back custody of his son. So now Melissa has come forward to back up Jeremy’s story. Keep reading »

Ruh Roh: Americans Charged With Kidnapping 33 Haitian Kids

We’ve all heard the saying, “No good deed goes unpunished” — and that’s proven to be true for 10 Americans who flew down to Haiti after the Jan. 12 earthquake. Recently the Haitian government arrested a group of 10 Americans, most of whom are members of a Baptist congregation in Idaho, as they tried to take 33 children on a bus into the Dominican Republic. Members of the group say they were just trying to help. But Haiti has charged each American with kidnapping, which, if convicted, carries a possible sentence of five to 15 years in prison, and criminal association, which carries three to nine years.

Yikes. International diplomacy incident, anyone? Keep reading »

Elizabeth Smart Takes The Stand To Tell About Her Kidnapping Ordeal

Elizabeth Smart was found more than six years ago, but her kidnapper, Brian Mitchell, has still not gone to trial. His lawyers claim that he’s a complete looney, and it’s been an uphill battle to prove that he’s fit to stand trial. Makes you oh so proud of our legal system, right? Yesterday, at Mitchell’s official competency hearing, Elizabeth took the stand for the first time to tell what exactly happened to her in the nine months she was missing. The details are horrifying: After Mitchell took her at knife-point from her house, he made her hike three miles into the mountains to a campsite he’d set up. There, he performed a “marriage ceremony” and raped her. She was 14 at the time. He raped her every day for the next nine months. She said, “Anytime I showed resistance or hesitance, he would turn to me and say, ‘The Lord has commanded you to do this. You have to experience the lowest form of humanity to experience the highest.’” Mitchell forced her to drink alcohol, to take drugs, and to watch porn. At one point, Mitchell chained her to a tree. Elizabeth says that Mitchell planned to kidnap a second girl to “marry,” though luckily the plot didn’t work out. Keep reading »

“Faking Your Own Kidnapping While Cheating” Is The New Infidelity

Apparently unaware of the many ways this could backfire terribly, Wikler Moran-Mora, pastor of the Seventh Day Adventist Church of Reform in Tampa, FL, faked his own kidnapping so he could two-time his wife. According to police, Moran-Mora texted his wife last Tuesday evening to say he had been kidnapped, but that she should not worry because he was working to get released. But when police tracked down Moran-Mora’s location via his cell phone, they discovered “negotiating with kidnappers” actually meant “boning another woman.” The pastor has been charged with filing a false police report—and coming up with a really bad alibi. [ABC Action News]

But Moran-Mora actually isn’t the first genius who got caught being a liar, liar, pants on fire. A trip down memory lane, after the jump: Keep reading »

Kidnapping Victim Found Alive 18 Years Later

Let’s start Friday off on a happy/incredibly disturbing note, shall we? In 1991, Jaycee Dugard, 11, was kidnapped and presumed dead. This week, a woman walked into a police station in the Bay Area and told officers that she was Dugard, now 29. She had been kidnapped and kept a prisoner in the backyard of Phillip Garrido, a registered sex offender and religious fanatic, and his wife, Nancy. Garrido had raped her repeatedly over the years, fathering two children, now 11 and 15. Dugard and the girls were kept in tents and sheds in the Garridos’ backyard and police suspect that this week might have been the first time she or her children had left the compound. The three have since been reunited with Dugard’s family and the Garridos will be arraigned today. [LA Times] Keep reading »
