Reporters got their memory jogged when they saw the story about Bernann McKinney and her 5 cloned pups. She had a similar face and the age seemed to fit and she had the same surname. Upon further investigation there were even more similarities.
If it's her, which there isn't much doubt, she's been on the run from British authorities for nearly 30 years. After she was apprehended again in 1979 in Atlanta, Georgia the UK had no interest in having her extradited.
She had originally been charged with false imprisonment and possessing an imitation firearm. She had allegedly raped him three times while he was tied up and tried to force him to marry her. She said it was a bondage game that he consented to.
