Carlee Russell’s false kidnapping story made headlines across the country. After the Hoover Police Department investigated the claims, Russell’s attorney released a statement admitting that her story was completely fabricated.

In the statement made on Russell’s behalf, her attorney, Emory Anthony, clarified that there were no kidnappers, and that Carlee was not taken and was not with anyone else. Anthony also apologized for his client’s actions and suggested that people should pray for Carlee as she attempts to move forward and address any issues that led her to make such a story up.

The statement did not provide any further clues as to why Russell made the story up, leaving it for interpretation as to why such a fabrication was made in the first place. The outcome of the situation is still to be seen, but could could result in charges brought by the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office as a large amount of money and resources were put into the search.

Some questioned the legitimacy of the kidnapping story from the beginning, as the facts were not fitting nicely together and Carlee appeared out of nowhere. Furthermore, the police chief noted that their investigation revealed suspicious search history such as ‘amber alerts’ and ‘Taken’.

It’s unclear if Russell will be held accountable in court, but with the truth out in the open, it is no doubt that she has a lot of questions to answer. For now, all that is left is to wait for the next steps of this case and hope that Carlee can receive the help she needs
