I'm calling B.S. on this one

Robber kept as sex slave.

Soon as Erik mentioned this to me (he got it from here), I said "That happened, like two years ago."  He said he had a link to a recent news story, but as I said, "What are the chances of that happening twice?"

So I did a little digging.  Lots and lots of hits from the 10th through to yesterday, then this: Police: Woman kept robber as sex slave. Date on this one? April 15, 2009.

There's a newer Daily Mail story carrying a correction and noting that this actually happened in 2009, but I'm going to go out on a limb (and it's really more of a trunk, if you wanna know the truth) and say it never happened at all.  The details of the purported incident are rather fantastical--a gorgeous blonde salon owner who just happened to be a black belt and to have a ready supply of Viagra?  Yeah, not too bloody likely.  Stranger things and all that, but generally speaking there's usually a pretty good reason for things to be unbelievable.  (Notice that the older story had no names attached.)
