Inmate on the Run Asked the Media to Replace Her Mugshot with a Better Photo
Amy Sharp (18) from Australia who escaped from the Corrective Services Cell Complex and was on the run for several days asked a Sydney TV channel not to broadcast her photograph taken at the police station.
Metro writes that a young woman escaped on August 19. She was put on the wanted list, and local media started broadcasting information about her: citizens were asked to report to the police if they saw someone similar in the street.
Such appeal was published on Facebook of 7 News Sydney TV channel. The post was illustrated with a young woman’s mugshots.
Several hours later, the runaway young woman turned up in the comments and asked to replace the photographs for the better one: “Can you you this photo? Please and thank you,” she wrote and attached a photograph from her personal archives. Her comment soon had over 60,000 likes.
A day after that, police arrested the young woman again. A policeman saw her in the park and convoyed her to the nearest police station.
