Mary confessed to the officers that she faked her kidnap just to get money from her parents.

In her own words she said,

"My parents don't take good care of me so I faked my kidnap so that they can spend that money they don't like spending".


On my side

I am wondering why should such a beautiful girl reduce herself to that level? Your parents are rich and so what?

What happens if you go out there and hustle for yourself?

Now she is arrested and never got the money she was dying for. Oh! What a lost potential.

This generation is something else. People are ready to do anything just to make money. This young lady in question, does it mean that apart from faking her own kidnap there is no other way she can request and get money from her parents?

Talking about love, if her parents don't love her, they wouldn't have reported to the police in the first place.

Human reasoning really differs.
