    Suspect still at-large in 'bizarre' kidnapping of 7-year-old girl
    He kidnapped the little girl from an apartment complex courtyard. Thankfully, about an hour later, she was found in a nearby neighborhood. At this time, authorities think she somehow was able to escape.

    The map shows where the little girl was abducted, and where she was found. The distance is about 2.3 miles

    The girl's grandfather says he's angry that the suspect was able to get into the gated apartment complex to begin with, explaining, "It's supposed to be locked at all times. There's one gate that doesn't lock. If the guests come in, they put a rock in the gate to keep people from going in and out. That's going to have to change for sure. Very easily, they could not be going to a hospital, I could be going to a funeral for my granddaughter and that's scary."

    ETA: Just to be clear, it's been stated that the man has no connection to the little girl.

    She is one very lucky little girl and I hope they get the creep who abducted her. I dont give much for her chances if she hadn't escaped

    That's scary. The man looks very normal, isn't someone you would look at and think "oh-oh" ... just average Joe.

    So glad this ended well.

    Thank Goodness.

    I wonder how she got away? If he just let her go i will be surprised. I will be thankful though, seeing as so many of these monsters are killing their victims. This little sweetheart is back with her family and they must be so relieved. God Bless Her.

    The article goes on to say he was arrested shortly afterward.

    Thank goodness he's been caught, and the little girl escaped with her life. Still, the injury done to her is unforgiveable. Now the question is whether there have been other little victims who didn't get away!

    Am I correct that we have a white suspect and a black victim?
    How common is that? (I can't think of one right now...)
    I'm just wondering when looking into other possible victims...
    Should we be looking at all races or did he have a "type?"

    The address where he was arrested is Odyssey House, an addiction rehab facility.

    "Odyssey House Louisiana (OHL) is a nonprofit behavioral healthcare facility with an emphasis on addiction treatment."

    http://www.ohlinc.org/

    Of the states I've checked so far, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Florida, his name doesn't come up in the sex offender registries.

    There's no way to be sure with only one known victim. Besides race, I'm wondering about age range.

    ETA: FWIW, this guy lives in a very nice neighborhood in Kenner.

    Can you think of another case of a stranger child abduction that crossed race lines?
    I don't pay much attention to who the perp is, so I likely missed some.
    Then of course there are the unsolved ones, I can think of several of those.
    Of the solved ones I can think of, I cannot come up with one that was a different race from the victim. :waitasec:

    so sad she was raped but unlike so many she did get home to her loving parents. I wonder if she escaped or he just tossed her out of the car when done with her. What a creep
