Carlee Russell’s False Abduction Tale
The unsettling saga began on 13th July when 25-year-old Carlee Russell phoned 911, claiming she had stopped her car to assist a toddler wandering alone on Interstate 459.

However, on Monday, a jarring confession emerged: Hoover Police Department Chief, Nicholas Derzis, announced that a statement provided by Carlee Russell’s attorney, Emory Anthony, conceded that the abduction was a complete falsehood.
