Again with those Wisconsin folks!!
RACINE, Wis. -- A Racine man is accused of faking his own kidnapping and trying to get his mother to wire him ransom money. Police say 23-year-old James Williams sent his mother a text message Monday night, saying that he had been kidnapped and that his abductors were demanding $250 or they would kill him. Authorities say Williams' mother received at least nine text messages demanding that $250 be wired by Western Union to a Milwaukee Wal-Mart. She was told her son would be beaten and shot if she did not comply. Williams' mother called police and a trace was put on Williams' phone. Detectives say they found the messages were coming from Williams' phone near Interstate 94 in Kenosha County. Police found Williams alone in his mother's van on Highway 50.
Whenever I have some time alone in my van, I like to have a good book and a nice hot mocha with me. Suppose he did too?
