A Georgia bride-to-be who vanished just days before her wedding turned up in New Mexico and fabricated a tale of abduction before admitting Saturday that she got cold feet and “needed some time alone,” police said. Jennifer Wilbanks, 32, was in police custody more than 1,420 miles from her home on what was supposed to be her wedding day Saturday.
“It turns out that Miss Wilbanks basically felt the pressure of this large wedding and could not handle it,” said Randy Belcher, the police chief in Duluth, Ga., the Atlanta suburb where Wilbanks lives with her fiance. He said there would be no criminal charges.
Wilbanks had called her fiance, John Mason, from a pay phone late Friday and told him that she had been kidnapped three days earlier while jogging, authorities said. Her family rejoiced that she was safe, telling reporters that the media coverage apparently got to the kidnappers.
And since everyone feels sorry for the poor psycho, she apparently won’t face any charges. No wonder women feel that they can lie with impunity about being raped, kidnapped or sexually harassed… they seldom face any consequences for it.
As a corollary to this, any racial incident occurring on campus will almost always prove to have been concocted by the victim. Was anyone actually surprised when it turned out that what the Chicago Sun-Times was calling “the Trinity crisis” turned out to be completely fabricated by a black female student there?
