BREAKING: Kidnapper of own Daughter: How Dumb Can You Be

Chinese papers are reporting this hilariously incompetent kidnapper...wait until this one breaks tomorrow. A South African kidnapped his own daughter, attempted to extort money from his wife's family, and was busted as a ham-handed crook by the local police. The "kidnapper" apparently communicated in perfect English, right down to the spelling, which roused police suspicions. And the hapless crook stashed his daughter in the nursery school 'round the corner, believing that the police would never suspect him, and then never find her there. It took the police just three hours to break the case. ROFL.

UPDATE: 9/10. The Taipei Times has the story here.
