Five Kidnapping Cases That Made History

Five Kidnapping Cases That Made History / History

When I was a kid, my mom was always chiding me to stay close to her for fear that I’d be “snatched.” When I got a little older, I decided my mom was crazy, paranoid, and overbearing.

Обогащаем запас сленговых выражений / Nota bene
