I'm afraid that's exactly the thought that went through my head. I googled this story to search for an original case file - a missing person's report, a crime reporter's coverage of this sensational story when it first broke - but all I found was a post on a MySpace page from 2006, which tells a slightly different version of events:
"My name is Shauna Newell. I am 17 years old. I was recently held against my will, drugged, and reapeatly raped, by 5 men. The Pensacola Police Dept. are finding it hard to help with my case, because of my past as a run away. Im not asking for a million dollars, or to be known across the united states. I am simply asking for justice, so i can begin MY healing process, and move on with my life. So i decided to write to you all, and share my story. On April 29th 2006, i was with a friend, and her boss. Her boss took my friend and i to a house, and left us there, saying that he would be back in 10 minutes, he had to run an erron. He never came back. I was very uncomfortable in the location, and i wanted to leave, but when i tried to, the people i was around, wouldnt let me. I was then heavily drugged; Ecstacy, Meth, Cocaine, and Acid. Then i was repeatly raped by 5 men, for 2 days. Finally on May 2nd, i was dumped, still heavily drugged, at Tom Thumb in Flora-Bama. Where my family was searching, putting up fliers, and praying i was safe. My little brother, Austin, saw the men dump me out of the car, and took off."
The elements of this story that concern me are
1) the fact that the current story claims she believed her abductor to be her friend's "dad;" in the 2006 version it's her friend's "boss."
2) in the news report she was discovered and rescued, and in the original version she was dumped from a car
3) in the news story she was on a sleepover, and on the myspace page she's a runway
4) the fact that the only witnesses to her abduction are family members, and specifically the little brother who, coincidentally, was in the right place at the right time to see her in the presence of her abductors.
I have the utmost sympathy for victims of sexual assault, but I also want journalists to do their jobs and vet stories before putting them into circulation. It concerns me that this news article - which is currently circulating all over the world - doesn't corroborate this girl's story with quotations from the police or school officials. If this story is revealed to be false, it would be a blow for victims' rights in America.
The Myspace page I'm quoting from can be found at http://forum.myspace.com/index.cfm... .
If they only knew the real deal about the police in Penacola they never help with anything all they do is judge people

Sex slavery? Gang rape? Aren't these just synonyms for "middle school dance" in West Florida? Or do you have to add in parental incest to meet the local definition?
