Per ABC News, Ann Pettway has turned herself over to the police in Bridgeport, Connecticut, which is where her family lives and where she raised Carlina for a time after the abduction. It sounds like that’s the first sensible thing she’s done in a long time.
Someone sent me this Tennesseean article my way, which gives some more information on the mysterious 2003 disappearance of new wife and mother of two Salena Tackett. She had been married for all of a week when she apparently got up in the middle of the night and decamped for parts unknown, never to be seen again. She left behind two kids, one of whom was only three. I wonder who’s taking care of them now. Salena’s mother died after her disappearance. No one seems to know where her husband is now.
The police seem to think she met with foul play, but there isn’t a lot of evidence there. I don’t even have a height or weight for this woman.
