April and Nathan claim a stranger has “digitally kidnapped” their twin daughters, taking hundreds of photos of their girls that they published on social media and reposting them on her pages as if she was their mother.

“She basically took my photos offline and made up a complete life of her as their mom, and has a story to go along with every single picture with my girls,” April says of the woman, Ashley.
According to April and Nathan, not only did Ashley post the photos on her own social media accounts, but she also posted pictures of the girls in picture frames throughout her house.
When Dr. Phil first confronted Ashley with the allegations, she denied “stealing” the photos and claimed that she had no idea who April and Nathan were, calling their allegations “bizarre.”

However, when Dr. Phil reviewed Ashley’s Facebook page, he uncovered what he described as “hundreds of photos” of April and Nathan’s daughters on her page. Then, he showed Ashley pictures of the inside of her home with the pictures of the twins, and Ashley finally confessed.
In the video above, Ashley tearfully apologizes to the parents. Is she ready to delete all of April and Nathan’s photos and leave their family alone?
