Details from the press conference held by Katherine Lester’s family…
Lester’s mother, Shawn, and sister, Mary, appeared with attorney Renee Wood at a press conference. At one point, Shawn Lester began to cry, but did not speak to the media. Wood acknowledged that Katherine Lester is doing well and appeared “jovial” upon her return to the United States, but said Shawn Lester hasn’t been alone with her daughter since her return. Katherine is in hiding after creating a global stir by traveling to meet a man who calls himself Abdullah Psycho.
“The family (is) so traumatized that it’s hard for them to speak about it,” Wood said. “Shawn loves her very much, but she cannot support her actions. She doesn’t know why this happened.
The 16-year-old persuaded her parents to get her a passport, saying she needed it for a trip to Canada. Instead, she left home in a taxi June 4. Later, it was revealed she stayed in hotels in Bay City and New York.
I wonder if she was staying at nice hotels or Uncle Dave’s Roach Hut? What reasonable hotel would let a 16-year-old stay by herself? Fake ID maybe?
