The reporter asked the man if the luxury Mercedes was his. The man looked at the woman beside him and didn’t answer. Then they grabbed onto the little boy and began walking away. The reporter followed them all the way to the parking lot; the couple with the baby and boy got into a minivan, which seemed to be an expensive one, and drove off.
With the help of recognition software, the news channel was able to estimate that there was an 80% accuracy between the people the reporter saw at the shopping center and the people Melissa took photos of. Little did they know that there was much more going on than what they could ever imagine.
The Search Ensued
One of the ABC news channel reporters was at the shopping center where it was thought the beggar was seen and began searching the place for pregnant women that could match the description. Then, she saw a woman who looked rough; her clothes were dirty, and she looked very much like the woman from Melissa's pictures.
Now, this woman the news reporter believed to be the beggar didn't seem to be pregnant anymore, and she was holding a small baby in her arms. The reporter wouldn't let her go, as she felt this could be the story of a lifetime, and she wasn't about to give it up.
The reporter took out some photographs of the pregnant beggar she had on her and asked the woman with the baby in her hands if it was her. Everything was being recorded. The woman looked confused, not understanding what was going on. She looked at the photographs that were presented to her, said she couldn't speak any English, only Spanish, shook her head, and continued standing there.
Then, out of nowhere, a man and a little boy appeared. The four of them stood there, staring at the reporter, not saying a word. The reporter, who knew Spanish, asked the couple some questions, however, this led her nowhere. They didn't answer any of her questions and looked as if they had no idea what the reporter was on about.
Trying to Decode the Words
While the news team was reviewing the videos their reporter took, they realized something they hadn't seen before. Although the suspicious man and woman spoke Spanish at first, the man said something to the woman in a different language, one that no one was able to recognize. No one understood what he was saying, however, they felt this was crucial information they had to know.
A police investigator happened to watch the news that day and understood that the news channels were having difficulties understanding what was going on. She contacted them and offered to help. The police needed all the help they could get and were asked to come to the news station as soon as possible.
Leslie Albright worked for the police for years. She had a lot of experience when it came to investigating people and had her fair share of foreigners and immigrants being questioned by her so that she could handle other languages. When she learned about what was going on, she felt something much deeper was happening.
When she saw the report on the news channel, she heard the language spoken between the man and woman and knew she had already heard it before. After a while, she recalled where and when the language was spoken before and knew that they were dealing with a very dangerous organization. This was no child's play.
