Jody and Mike claim their 14-year-old daughter, Michelle, is a habitual runaway who has run away from home at least 10 times this year. They say on June 17, Michelle ran away from home for five days and they assumed the worst.

“A random tip brought police to an apartment. They found Michelle and Paul,” says Jody. “That was the first time I ever heard about Paul. We had no idea that she was seeing an 18-year-old.”
Jody says that when she and Mike confronted Paul, he claimed he didn’t know Michelle was only 14. “I called Paul a rapist and told him to stay away from my daughter,” Jody says. “Paul told us that he was in love with her; he wanted to marry her. Over my dead body.”
