• Mother fights to keep daughter from online paramour
By Linda Green

A Thomson mother is in a battle to save her developmentally-impaired daughter from a seemingly online predator.
The mother noticed that her, once affectionate, 17-year-old daughter had pulled away from the family, become distant and developed an overprotective attitude about her cell phone.
The McDuffie Progress has chosen to not release the name of the mother and the daughter for their safety.
The daughter’s disturbing actions compelled the mother to shadow her Facebook activity. She became horrified by the conversations between her child and a person named Daniel Brown, who said he lived in Australia, as well as another person who portrayed himself as one of Brown’s relatives. The mother believes both names are fake.
The mother was able to monitor her daughter’s Facebook, instant messaging accounts and cellphone.
In one of the conversations, the person claiming to be Daniel Brown told the daughter that when she turned 18 he would help her get a 24-hour passport and fly her to Australia to be with him. There was also a message about a suicide pact between the daughter and the person called Daniel, as well as a line about killing the mother.
