they avoided drug smuggling charges. 5) New Trout Cave, West Virginia, USA Gary Lutes and his two sons aged 13 and 9

were never seen again. 1) Los Angeles, USA Tourists staying at a rundown LA hotel unknowingly

elevators. Questions also arose regarding how she got into the tank, which was alarmed
and locked.
