The Alexandria Towntalk covered the Corey Gautreaux story with this story “Kidnapping claims patently false” on February 7th, 2012 at 11 pm.
It does not appear to contain any news that we had not already discussed here at LaDads.
The article states in part:
Allegations concerning a Turkey Creek man who is accused of kidnapping his daughter from a Bunkie home are false, according to a news release from attorney David C. Hesser’s law office.
The release said the allegations against Corey Gautreaux are “patently false and fabricated. Mr. Gautreaux is the legal father of the minor child and has just as much right to custody of the child as the mother. A bizarre story was concocted in an effort to manipulate law enforcement and punish Mr. Gautreaux.
We understand from the Louisiana State Police web site that the Louisiana Amber Alert system has not be used in 3 years. It is a shame that the first use of the Amber Alert system in 2012 was for a fraudulent claim of child kidnapping by a father.
We hope that the people who abused the system for their own nefarious purposes will be punished.
