in the continuing saga of psycho ex-daughter in law who left town with an excaped convict and took the grandkids: she showed up here today (it's an 8 hour drive from where they supposedly are). I think convict was with her but don't know if the kids are someplace close or if she left them in OK with her brother. In any case, landlord saw her in town so told difficult child to bring the key to the house as he had bought new locks and was going to change them so she couldn't get in. By the time we all got there, she had been and gone. She slashed all of the upholstered furniture (this was a $2000 when it was new about 4 years ago, 3 piece sectional) and stole the new locks, which were on the coffee table. Not sure what else she did. Police were called but were mostly useless. Apparently one of the reasons they came is that difficult child was served with a protection order to protect THEM from HIM. WTF??? If he wants to fight it or respond, he has to make a trip to OK in December. What a mess!
