In the category of "why desperately frustrated fetishists need to work on their issues before they do something craaaazy," this strange story about another Craigslist ad debacle.
Woman Falls Victim to Man's Baby Fetish, Via Craigslist
According to a report by Florida's WKMG last month, Janet Schulte, of Melbourne, Florida, answered an ad on the classifieds site to care for a man's older brother who supposedly had a "diminished mental capacity." Schulte took the job and went to work -- feeding the man with a baby bottle and changing his adult diapers. Every time she asked to meet the disabled man's brother, she was given an excuse. When Schulte's weekly $600 payments started arriving late, she and her husband looked into the situation.
According to a report on NBC Miami this Monday, the couple discovered, to their disgust, that the man with the "diminished mental capacity" and the 'brother' who posted the ad were, in fact, the same person. For weeks, she'd just been playing into his baby fetish. (WKMG's earlier report suggests that the diaper-wearer, identified as Ryan, does indeed have a brother, named Mike, although Mike denied any knowledge of the circumstances to WKMG reporters.) To make things worse, NBC Miami reports that there's nothing the Schultes can do, since the man (or men) didn't technically commit a crime.
