Police also noted the victim had visible injuries when they spoke with her.
Both Helen and Christopher voluntarily spoke with police after the incident was reported. Helen claimed that the victim had hired people to beat her up and take the SUV, making it look like a robbery to get rid of the vehicle. Christopher told police two other men wanted to speak to the victim because the money given to them was fake. Helen and Christopher are both facing one count of robbery for the alleged crime.
