Mom Sentenced For Making Up Kidnapping And Gang-Rape Tried To Flee

A Michigan mother who was convicted for making up a story about being gang-raped fled from a sheriff’s custody after being taken to a hospital for treatment, according to a prosecutor.

Leiha Ann-Sue Artman, 26, was sentenced to a year in prison for making up a story that she was kidnapped and gang-raped by four black men in 2016. According to MLive, Artman dodged jail time for the crime by entering an intensive probation program and a residential jail alternative program. But, last month, she went missing from the alternative program, violating her parole.

September 26, 2014: 43 Students Disappear In Mass Kidnapping

This Day in Crime History is a flash briefing available on Amazon Alexa. Just search OXYGEN to enable.

Forty-three male students from Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers’ College went missing in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico, on September 26, 2014. Details of the mass kidnapping remain unclear to this day.

The students were thought to have commandeered buses to Mexico City to commemorate the anniversary of a 1968 massacre, but were intercepted by local police before a confrontation broke out. At some point, the students were handed over to the Gah-rreros Unidos crime syndicate and presumably killed, although motivations or an exact understanding of a sequence of events are still mysterious. Police later claimed Iguala’s mayor and his wife were the masterminds behind the entire incident. The two fled from the city but were later arrested.

The kidnappings led to unrest in cities and civilian attacks on government buildings and became a nationwide scandal.

Months later,

Model Chloe Ayling’s Kidnapping, Sale As Sex Slave Was ‘Publicity Stunt,’ Lawyer Says

The terrifying kidnapping of a British Instagram model may have been a “publicity stunt” — that’s according to the lawyer representing the man accused of kidnapping 20-year-old Chloe Ayling.

As Metro reports, 30-year-old Lukasz Herba was arrested for the ordeal, which included a kidnapping ring that intended to traffic Ayling for sex on the Internet, and his attorney is calling the entire incident a “sham.”

 

 

Ayling said that she was lured to Milan under a false pretext of a photo shoot. When she got there, Herba and a gang of men drugged and kidnapped her. They kept her tied up and threatened to sell her on the Dark Web for sex. The ring apparently let her go because they found out she had a son. Herba returned Ayling to the British Embassay and was arrested.

“There is a real risk that the entire case is
