Tanya Hunt, Lucas’ grandmother said she feels like her granddaughter planned the abduction.
“Who has clothes for those children? Who got milk for that baby. Who bought pampers? Wipes? Anything?” Hunt told WTVD. “Because when she took them, my grandson had on a tank top t-shirt and sweatpants. No jacket. My granddaughter had on a t-shirt and sweatpants. No jacket. No car seats.
