Well I’m not quite sure what to believe to be honest with you, but I am inclined to believe that the girl did not know that they were filming a movie, and that she was held against her will, and she thought she was going to die!
When I first saw the footage I was truly horrified. The girl looked genuinely terrified. I was sickened by what I saw.
The girl presses charges. Prosecutors charge 4 with Kidnapping and other misc. charges, and one for conspiracy. The girl has abraisions on her wrists. The video tape. Seems like a done deal.
Then we hear the defense side. We see that the knife used in the “abduction” has tape all over it. We see video footage of the girl at the end saying “Great, it’s over. I survived.”, while semi-smiling at the camera. We see the alleged kidnappers give a curtain call at the end of the tape. We learn that girl went back to the alleged kidnappers house afterwards and “hanged out”. We learn that girl went to the police only after her doctor noticed abraisions on her wrists.
Phew, what to think! I can see it being both ways! But I am in inclined to believe that the girl was held against her will. I am inclined to believe that she did not know that this was mearely an amateur horror film. Either that, or she is one hell of a good actress for a 19 year old check out girl. I can totally see someone in that situation, if after all she went through, and they suddenly say, “hey, surprise. We are not going to kill you. It was all a joke.”, “Great, it’s over. I survived.”, while giving a scared smile to the camera. She thought she was going to die. She plays along with the guys so they won’t get upset. Maybe that’s why she went back to their house for a brief period of time. Maybe she went their to try and get the tape so people would believe her story? We also heard that other girl say the same thing happened to her. Plus, if the girl was a part of the filming all along, why would she make up the story of the abduction? She is going to send four guys to prison for life just for the hell out it? It doesn’t make any sense.
No, I believe these guys kidnapped this poor girl, scared the hell out of her, and then let her go. All in “fun and games” for these sickos. I believe these guys have done this before to other girls (based on the other girls statement). And I believe these guys should spend the rest of their miserable lives in prison!
