Metro Woman Accused Of Luring Colorado Teen
OKLAHOMA CITY - Authorities accused an Oklahoma City woman of trying to lure a teenager in Colorado to Oklahoma.
Police said the two even had plans to move in together, but the 14-year-old victim was stopped just in time.
Investigators said the teen was headed to Oklahoma but her brother saw her getting into a taxi outside their home. He called their parents, who contacted police and they tracked her down.
The teen was found on a plane at the Denver airport which was about to take off for Oklahoma City.
According to court documents the suspect in this case, 20-year-old Heather Wallenberg, had an ongoing online relationship with the 14-year-old girl who's from Parker, Colorado.
The victim had planned to run away from home to live with Wallenberg. That was confirmed, according to the police report and court documents, through text messages, emails and victim testimony.
The police report also revealed Wallenberg had flown to Denver earlier in the year to attend Comic Con. That's when she met the young teen for the first time in person.
Police said Wallenberg had stayed with the minor at a hotel that weekend in the Denver area.
Oklahoma City police were notified by police in Parker, Colorado about the case and were forwarded text message downloads to OCPD.
Messages revealed the 14-year-old was searching for information about "same sex marriage, getting emancipated, and age of consent."
Messages were also sent talking about the two being together.
Although Wallenberg has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, she has not been arrested.
