Kidnapping Tale

Pat gets a myserious no-prize for bringing us reaction to the tale of Natascha Kampusch, an Austrian girl who claims to have been held captive by a stranger for eight years.

I hadn't heard of this at all until I read this Washington Post story this morning, which seems to summarize things well enough. The whole thing is a little too neat, in my opinion. It sounds like some lurid '70s kidnap novel, complete with a climactic suicide of the bad guy at the end. Still, one would think the police would have lots of evidence in hand to legitimize the whole thing. Or not.

Very, very strange.
