Woman Who Cloned Pets is Alleged Kidnapper and Rapist

This is just bizarre, but the woman who had 5 dogs cloned is a bail jumping alleged rapist. The rapist part is alleged, not the bail jumping part.
The story of Joyce McKinney is the stuff of pulp fiction: a North Carolina-born beauty queen who moved west, won the title Miss Wyoming USA and went on to college at Brigham Young University, where she became obsessed with a Mormon fellow student.

When that young Mormon took a missionary trip to England, authorities say, McKinney hired a private detective so she could find and follow him.

She and a male accomplice were accused of abducting the 21-year-old missionary as he went door to door, taking him to a rented 17th-century "honeymoon cottage" in Devon and chaining him spread-eagle to a bed with several pairs of mink-lined handcuffs.

There, investigators say, he was repeatedly forced to have sex with McKinney before he was able to escape and notify police.
Creepy. She promptly jumped bail and fled the country. That was in 1977, but apparently she was still pining for him, as she was allegedly stalking and trying to do it again to the guy in 1984.
