Don’t ever rely on the kindness of strangers, especially on craigslist.
A woman from New York City supposedly placed an ad on craigslist looking for a place to stay in New England so she could start a new life. What police say she got instead was 3 days of being held captive and raped.
Authorities say that 48-year-old Jeffrey Gray of Windham, New Hampshire lured her to the Green Mountain state with the promise of place she could stay. When she got to New Hampshire and met with Gray he allegedly held her captive for 3 days and repeatedly raped her. He then dropped her off at Boston’s Logan Airport.
It turns out that Gray has a history of criminal threatening and restraining orders.
Face it people. Craigslist is lost to the criminals. It’s no longer the friendly online global community that it briefly was in the late 90s. Scum like Gray are more and more becoming the norm and not the exception.
