04/30/2005: Stupidity Does COST us all...
Now, I hate to be overly judgmental here about this situation of the “Missing Woman” Police Say Georgia Bride-to-Be Got Cold Feet:Woman Calls Fiance From Pay Phone Early Saturday, Makes Up Kidnap Story by Mary Perea (Associated Press):
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 had gotten 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.
''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….
….Mason did not speak publicly after Wilbanks said she lied about being abducted. Her uncle, Mike Satterfield, thanked people who had helped in the search.
''Jennifer had some issues the family was not aware of. We're looking forward to loving her and talking to her about these issues,'' he said.”
But -- How’d ya like to be the law enforcement people who wasted valuable time and resources searching and tracking down leads?
Or the Fiance – asked to a take a poly-graph to Prove he wasn’t involved in her mysterious disappearance?
Or one of the 600 guests who bought celebratory gifts for this couple?
(How long do you really think a marriage like this is going to last anyway…??)
This woman already sound like a real STUPID MORON just a pint shy of being an imbecile and too immature for her own good. Somebody revoke that marriage license – and quickly too!! Maybe no criminal charges are warranted...but how about some Stupidity Costs to be paid by Ms. Wilbanks.
