Admittedly I can’t count the emails I don’t receive, but so far lots of readers think this smart thing is a lot fishier than appearances and appearances are pretty darn fishy.
A typical email from a reader:
Not only is it peculiar for the mother to invite this homeless bum into her house for work, there are many more strange doins’
The sister waits 2 hours before calling her parents after the abduction
The intruder is able to break into the house and leave with no one noticing.
A 6000 square foot house, but no burglar alarm?
The sister suddenly remembers who she saw/heard – what – 5 months later?
Elizabeth apparently passes up numerous opportunities to escape, call out for help, even on a city street near the police station.
Color me skeptical. I think the 15 year old was much more complicit than an innocent in this whole affair. And the younger sister, too.
And I did not grow up in NYC.
