The then-possible kidnapper Kelly Allen Frank was subsequently arrested on charges of solicitation to kidnap. At the time, investigators said that Kelly had approached an acquaintance of a plan to abduct. But, the person “didn’t like the idea” and told all about Kelly’s plot to the Teton County sheriff’s office.
Upon the court’s verdict, Frank was given a 10-year-prison sentence but escaped in 2007. Kelly couldn’t spend a long life as a fugitive as he was recaptured shortly and released on parole in 2014. A year after, Frank was again arrested for violating the terms of his parole.
