A 63-year-old man in Oklahoma has been accused of kidnapping his step-daughter and keeping her as a captive in the basement of his house for 19 years. Henri Michelle Piette kidnapped his daughter in 1966 when she was only 11-years-old and raped her multiple times during this period making her pregnant 9 times. Not only this, he also fathered the 9 kids. The daughter, Rosalynn Michelle McGinnis, who is 32-years-old now claimed that the accused would beat her up with baseball bats, choked her and repeatedly raped her after kidnapping her from school one day.
The accused faces charges of first degree rape of a victim under the age of 14, child abuse and two counts of molestation.
The first time he had sex with McGinnis, it was in the back of a house that she shared with a friend. She was only 11-years-old back then.
A few days later he took her to a van and married her at a ceremony and also gave her a ring.
He traveled with her through US and Mexico and changed their names several times after that to stay hidden. He would return to Oklahoma often and reply to mails to fake that they were still living in the city.
McGinnis gave birth to two of Henri’s kids when she was not even 18. She conceived 7 times more after she turned 18.
The court has collected DNA samples of Henri and the kids for comparison. Last year she managed o escape from Henri’s captivity in Mexico and went to the US Embassy. There she secured passports for herself and the kids to enter the USA.
According to McGinnis Henri has strong connections with the Mexican Mafia and currently he is in custody in Oklahoma. If found guilty he can face a life imprisonment and up to $250,000 fine.
