She never saw the outside of the building.

But this silence led to speculation from cynics that the whole kidnapping had been a hoax if the Lace was so vocal about seeking answers when sherry went, missing Y got killed, when she was returned safely was possible. The whole thing had been a publicity stunt by cameron gamble the hostage negotiator after all, or perhaps Kate and cherry had crafted the elaborate plot for financial gain and fame. investigators had considered this possibility, but, alas,
