Victims of Downtown Disney Kidnapping Decide Not to Prosecute

13 Jun

Interesting story from today’s Orlando Sentinel:

The victims of a recent robbery and kidnapping at Downtown Disney have decided not to prosecute if the Orange County Sheriff’s Office captures their abductors.

“They both signed DOI’s within the past hour,” sheriff’s spokesman Jim Solomons said shortly after 11 a.m. Wednesday. DOI stands for declination of intent, a form stating that victims decline to prosecute.

The abduction early Sunday of Jessica DellaCamera and Justin Stetzer, tourists from Connecticut, attracted national attention after they reported being taken at gunpoint from Downtown Disney, Walt Disney World’s shopping and nightclub center.

There’s been a lot of back and forth on this story, including a period in time when the Connecticut Police disbelieved the report, based on a misidentification of one of the victims. We might not have heard the last of this story.

    Hmmm….no witnesses, no video footage of the attackers, the ATM video shows the man withdrawing money alone, and now they decide for some reason not to press charges.

    Just sayin’.

    Yup, plenty of room for speculation here. I doubt we’ll ever have the whole story.

    I must admit though, I’m not crazy about the DTD parking lots after dark. They’re not as well lit as the theme park lots.
