Eliza Fletcher Abduction Update as Billionaire Heiress Remains Missing

A 38-year-old man has been charged with the street abduction of heiress Eliza Fletcher, who was bundled into a car while out jogging—but her whereabouts remain

unknown. Cleotha Abston had his bond set at $500,000 by a judge on Sunday after he was charged with especially aggravated kidnapping and tampering with evidence in

connection with the mother-of-two's disappearance in Memphis, Tennessee. Fletcher, a 34-year-old teacher, was snatched at 4:30 a.m. on Friday morning as she jogged along the

3800 Block of Central Avenue. Police say a struggle ensued before her attacker managed to shove her into a GMC Terrain. Security camera footage covering the spot where

Fletcher was kidnapped shows a GMC Terrain "passing and then waiting for the victim to run by" before the attacker ran "aggressively toward the victim," an affidavit

stated. The car parked in a nearby lot with the victim seemingly inside for four minutes before driving off. Fletcher is thought to have "suffered serious injury" and "left

evidence, e.g., blood, in the vehicle that the Defendant cleaned," according to the court documents. Police alleged they had linked Abston to the abduction by matching DNA

evidence from a pair of Champion slides sandals that were found near the crime scene. Abston was named as a suspect by detectives and was arrested by police on Saturday

morning after he was spotted by U.S. Marshals. Memphis Police Department tweeted that the vehicle, which is currently undergoing a forensic examination, had been located

while adding the male occupant of the car had "been detained for further investigation."
