It is hard to believe that Clark Rockefeller would have fallen for such a ruse as the “old boat taking on water” trick. Clark Rockefeller, who methodically planned this abduction for months, created false leads and back stories that would have investigators searching in the wrong direction, actually fell for such a simple police sting. One would have thought that he would have been suspicious of everything. It’s not as if this story was not on every TV, radio and print medium in the US and the Caribbean, let alone the world. However, luckily for Reigh he did!
Police have revealed how they used a trick to rescue the kidnapped seven-year-old daughter of a London-based management consultant by luring her father out of the apartment where he had been holding her.
His arrest followed a tip-off from a “concerned” member of the public that he was living in a Baltimore apartment and had a 26ft catamaran docked at a nearby marina, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said.
After watching the flat for two days, investigators used a ruse to lure Rockerfeller away, calling him on the phone and pretending that his boat was taking on water, Commissioner Davis said.
Clark Rockefeller, 48, will face charges that include felony custodial kidnapping and assault and battery. Investigators are still trying to determine his true identity.
