This is a different one. Apparently she went willingly and probably knows his charges and what he is although he likely didn't tell her the entire truth or made excuses for his charges. It's difficult to say if the relationship has been sexual previously but since he is a predator it wouldn't be surprising. Because of these things though, there is a likelihood she will be found safe and that's what I'm hoping. She appears to be "on his side" so he would have no reason to murder her hopefully. She doesn't, however, look very happy in that picture at the school. I'm assuming it is a pic from when she left as the clothing matches the description given and the location seems to as well.

Court documents: Snapchat led convicted child predator to Lewiston teen girl, where sickening pattern of abuse continued​

Newly filed court documents spell out sickening accusations against a 36-year-old Lewiston man. According to the documents, Jonathon Bowles met a 15-year-old girl on Snapchat. She told police that she believed he was 24-years-old.

According to court documents, she told police the two of them had sexual intercourse multiple times. She told police that he provided her with a "Plan B" pill, which he had with him. She said he knew she was in high school, and that she was under 18, because he picked her up from school several times when she told him she was on her lunch break. She told police that she had discussions with him about her flirting with a least two other boys in her school and "she had to regain his trust in her."

According to court documents, Bowles told her he wanted to marry her and have her as his girlfriend and was willing to wait three years to marry her.

On December 3rd, at 3pm, docs say that Bowles coordinated to meet with the girl behind a church near Lewiston High School, where the girl goes to school. He told her, she says, that he was leaving the Lewiston area because he was fleeing from criminal charges of rape. He told her he did not know where he was going, but the two made a plan together, the docs say, to evade law enforcement.



While this was happening, a separate trauma was playing out for the young woman's family. The girl's mother received a "ransom" text message, which stated: "I told you I have Lillian but you decided not to say anything about it or take it seriously. Now she is sick and wants to talk to her family over the phone. This is ****ing important. I am not releasing her until I have a ransom of $7,000. I am sure you know what to do if you don't want me to make today horrible for you by killing her."

Separate, but similary, ransom texts were sent to the mother's sister.

The docs do not say whether Bowles had anything to do with those texts, but he is not facing charges related to those texts at this time. KHQ has reported on people who have posted information online about missing loved ones and received texts similar to these. Scammers, looking to take advantage of a vulnerable and desperate individual will find ways to contact them, demanding money to see their loved ones again. It's often wholly separate from the actual case.
