          Runaway Teen Claims She Left Home When Mom Rented Her Bedroom To A ‘Greasy Old Man’


          October 10, 2018

          Theresa claims her 16-year-old daughter, Tessa, ran away from home in July to be with a boy she met online. Tessa says she left because Theresa kicked her out of her bedroom so that she could rent it to “a greasy old man.”
