Marley Spindler, a 16-year-old straight-A student from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, disappeared on August 20th, her first day as a high school junior. She told her friends that she was going to pick up a 22-year-old man she met over the summer named Jeremy. The police found her on Wednesday, safe, when they pulled over her Ford Escape in Mt. Pleasant.
Where the story turns strange is Spindler told the police that a stranger forced his way into her car and ordered her to drive away.
While in custody, Marley Spindler alleged that was abducted and raped during the week she was missing. The police launched an investigation and processed the SUV for evidence. A nurse examined her for evidence of physical trauma consistent with forcible sex.
The investigators came back to question her again. At this point, Spindler admitted that she had made up the entire kidnapping and rape story. The police, being the Patriarchal enablers of rape culture they are, filed a complaint against her for filing a false report, because allowing women to waste the cops’ time and the taxpayers’ money is a sign of true gender equality.
What likely happened is that young Marley went on an extended date with Jeremy, let the man sample her feminine virtue (read: fuck her silly), then she remembered “uh-oh! Mom and Dad might be pissed! Better claim I was raped! That’ll fix everything!”
