A dad and his daughter were captured in California recently after police say they kidnapped a lady at gunpoint in Las Vegas and held her hostage for about seven days in Southern California, where they molested, explicitly attacked and eventually left her to die in the desert north of Los Angeles.
“She’s very fortunate to be alive,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Capt. Eduardo Hernandez said in a Friday newsgathering.
Stanley Alfred Lawton was captured in Palmdale, California, while lady officials identified as his 22-year-old daughter, Shaniya Nicole Poach Lawton, was captured in a similar spot early Thursday.
“It’s a horrendous case; it’s at gunpoint, by power,” Hernandez said. “That unfortunate casualty is then shipped crosswise over state lines, held in a house inside space for a period seven days. We don’t have a clue what sort of conditions she was held in. Sooner or later she was explicitly ambushed and afterward left for dead.”
During the short Friday news meeting, Hernandez shared scarcely any details and wouldn’t expand on points of interest in the continuous investigation.
He affirmed the Lawtons realize the person in question however is not identified with her; he included that there is nothing yet that demonstrates the wrongdoing was roused by revenge or that there was a ransom plot included.
The lady, who isn’t being named in light of the fact that she is a victim of abuse, was apparently cold and “suffering the components in the territory” when military police discovered her by a Kern County interstate, close to Edwards Air Force Base, Hernandez said.
It was vague to what extent she had been deserted before police took her to a medical clinic where she was dealt with. The lady, accepted to be in her 40s, has since come back to Las Vegas.
On Friday, Hernandez said examiners accept the Palmdale home where the injured individual was supposedly held and where police captured the suspects is Stanley Lawton’s home.
As indicated by prison records, the senior Lawton is being held on $4.5 million bails, while his little girl is being held in a different position on $1 million bails as they anticipate a Nov. 12 court appearance.
