What the Run Away Bride Should Have Done 

Here's an interesting story out of Kentucky (H/T to Boots & Sabers):

A Texas A&M University student who had been feared murdered after disappearing nearly seven years ago has been found alive and working in Kentucky, according to authorities.

Brandi Stahr went missing in October 1998, and police spent hours searching for her body in wooded areas. They questioned a serial rapist and murderer about her just hours before he was executed last year.

But a telephone tip led investigators to Florence, Ky., where Stahr has been working for the last five years at a Sam's Club, said Texas Ranger Frank Malinak.

"We thought we were dealing with a missing persons case," Malinak said. "But, in actuality, we were dealing with a person who did not want to be found and was in hiding."

Interestingly enough I talked about this not that long ago with regards to the so called Run Away Bride. If only she hadn't of been stupid and called in a fake kidnapping... she could have simply disappeared too. Hopefully we won't be hearing about a stupid prosecutor in Texas demanding she pay for search fees. It's not like she even tried that hard to disappear:

For the last five years, Stahr worked under her real name, using her Social Security number. But police said they were unable to locate her that way because they don't have access to IRS records.
