Barbara Jane Mackle – Kidnap Victim Spent more than 3 days in a Box Underground.
Robert F Mekill, a billionaire.
CEO of Deltona Corporation.
A close friend of US President Richard Nixon.
A life equal to a king in everything.
and only one daughter, Barbara Jennie Mekill.
Since a knock on the door fifty years ago, one of the most terrifying investigations in US history begins.
It is getting close to night.
Barbara comes out after hearing an incessant knock on the door. She didn’t open the door. I asked what was the matter. He got the news that his lover had met with an accident.
She opened the door and came out.
A gun greeted her. Both of them.
Young Gary and his friend Ruth.
They doused her with chloroform and made her unconscious. They took her in a blue Volvo car and left.
The whole country knew the news. Billionaire Robert McKinley’s daughter is missing. Investigation started.
Beyond twenty miles. Gary is busy taking a dig. Ruth is nearby. And a fiber glass box nearby.
Barbara slowly opened her eyes. Trees around.
She realized that she was in some desolate place. She shouted and tried to gather people. But when she felt the coldness of the gun in her stomach, she fell silent.
Ruth let her out of the car. Gary had come to her. Then he pointed to the box and said.
“It has everything you need to live for a week. Everything. the food the water blanket A battery operated light. A small tube for breathing. If you use everything carefully, you can live comfortably for up to a week. I’m sure someone will come looking for you”
They both put her inside the box and closed it. The box was lowered into that pit. Then cover with soil. Only a small tube above the soil. Through it you can hear her soft cry.
They came down from there.
The next morning the phone rang at Robert F. Mekill’s house.
Robert picked up the phone.
“Don’t say anything here. We have your daughter. Come to the place we tell you with 500,000 dollars. And two things. The money should be brought in a single box. Also an advertisement should be placed in the paper.
“Daughter, come back. Tell me what you want. We will give Don’t leave the house anymore.”
“Let’s call one tomorrow. I believe that you will not show too much intelligence” the phone was cut.
They made another entrance to the place where she was buried. You can hear small hums etc. Definitely not dead. They walked back and got into the car and headed towards the hotel.
A day passed.
Two days passed; In the morning, the phone rang again at Robert F. Mekill’s house.
“Isn’t everything okay?” I
got the answer of yes.
But he was required to arrive at Biscayne Bay as Rs.
“Leave the box there and go home. Let us know her whereabouts.”
Robert agrees and Gary and Ruth are overjoyed.
But things did not go as expected.
An estate owner was watching their coming and going. He thought the purpose was liberation. He lodged a complaint with the police.
Robert left the box there as they said. While they were walking to the car with the box, the police surrounded them. Leaving the box, both of them ran and hid.
The police conducted a thorough investigation there. Saw a blue car in the distance. They opened the car and looked. They realized that it was the car where Barbara was kidnapped. But where is she?
Robert called a press conference.
I had nothing to do with the arrival of this police. I am still willing to pay you.
Shortly after that press conference, I got a phone call.
“Come north of Miami as Rs. Take the box back there. By the time you get home, the next call will have come.”
Robert did just that. After three o’clock the next call came. She was told the place where she was buried.
More than a hundred policemen were involved in the investigation and
all are under investigation.
A policeman heard a faint sound from underground. He started digging there. After twelve minutes they took her out.
She was not afraid at all.
Do you know what were the first words she said to the policeman who took her out?
“You are the most beautiful man I have ever seen”
If we have confidence and courage we can face anything. Barbara said during an interview.
“Whenever I face death, I think of my father. Father Christmas will be remembered. Sing loudly. Always try to be happy and hopeful.”
A few days later, Gary was caught. Ruth was not found but a look out notice was issued. She was also caught within a few days. Gary was released on parole after ten years in prison.

“Why are you hitting me aunty? I’m not good”
Ethe Gary is again involved in another case. This time the subject was cocaine.
Gary was a doctor after serving his sentence. But the smell of birth does not change? In April 2006, police raided Gary Steven Christie’s lab in Auburn after finding that water and lights were set up at night, and that nighttime activities were taking place. The lab contained various chemicals, glassware, and equipment used to process cocaine. These devices were used to turn paste-like cocaine into powder form that could be sold on the street.
They arrested him. Prior to this, he was again in the police spotlight after he was arrested for trying to smuggle four migrants into the country on a chartered boat and for possessing 38.6 pounds of cocaine.
