The kidnapper was David Douglas, 43 years old, a man who lived in his car for two months after being kicked out of his family home. He sustains his mental normality but had a strange justification for his action. He claimed that the abduction was not his idea: “I took her because it was arranged for me to take her. I didn’t know what I was going to do with her, but I know it was not to harm her in any way.” Douglas invoked in his phantasmagorias story a government conspiracy to control his life and even said he’d tried to grab three different children in the same day. He is being held a $4 million bond.
