Like the Nellis kidnapping, I doubt if she has ever discussed the incident with
anyone.” “While Jessi was unconscious after the shooting last week, we learned
about the murder of her mother and her kidnapping.” Jake said, “I can understand
why she wouldn't want to discuss the incident, but how does a five-year old
survive such a severe beating and still have enough strength to push a grown

report of Nellis's ...

familiar, it should. He is none other than the mysterious “C. T. Gray,” who

with him that he almost completely effaced him from the story of his
transcontinental journey. When I retold Nellis's ...
