Michael Keeney And Eliza Fletche Wiki – Michael Keeney And Eliza Fletche Biography
Eliza Fletcher, a 34-year-old elementary school teacher, was kidnapped by Cleotha Abston, who was previously jailed for kidnapping a lawyer. Abston appeared in court on September 6 for the Fletcher kidnapping and pleaded his defense against charges of specially aggravated kidnapping and tampering with evidence. However, a former FBI investigator has linked this kidnapping to Fletcher’s uncle, whose former co-worker was kidnapped by none other than Abston himself.
Jennifer Coffindaffer, in a conversation with NewsNation, linked Eliza Fletcher’s kidnapping to that of Memphis attorney Kemper Durand, who worked at the same law firm as Fletcher’s uncle, Michael Keeney. She said: “I think this is a very important lead, and I’m sure the FBI, US Marshalls and TBI are watching this relationship closely.” In 2000, Cleotha Abston pleaded guilty to Durand’s kidnapping and was charged with 24 years in prison, but got out in 20 years. Coffindaffer reflected on Abston’s early release from prison, saying, “Any time someone gets out early and goes on to commit another violent crime, yes, I think society is disappointed. I think we’re all disappointed by his early release.” To little surprise, Abston has an extensive rap sheet that she began when she was only 12 years old, which included charges of robbery, aggravated assault and rape.
