Now, let me say that I have no sympathy for her, and I don't really understand why she is still alive; BUT...this guy who hired her sounds like a pervert, too. My take on all this is that he was hoping to blackmail her into being his own personal slave of various perverted sorts, and when she didn't play along, he concocted this story to get her. I think he is a pretty scummy person, from the look of it. I mean, how many people would persue her to offer her a job in a hardware store? He sure didn't come across as a great philanthropist.
