Appendix – The Ransom Note

Mr. Ramsey,
Listen carefully! We are a
group of individuals that represent
a small foreign faction. We ­­___
respect your business but not the
country that it serves. At this
time we have your daughter in our
possession. She is safe and unharmed
and if you want her to see 1997,
you must follow our instructions to
the letter.

You will withdraw $118,000.00
From your account. $100,000 will be
In $100 bills and the remaining
$18,000 in $20 bills. Make sure
that you bring an adequate size
attaché to the bank. When you
get home you will put the money
in a brown paper bag. I will
call you between 8 and 10 am
tomorrow to instruct you on delivery.
The delivery will be exhausting so
I advise you to be rested. If
we monitor you getting the money
early, we might call you early to
arrange an earlier delivery of the
money and hence, a earlier
_______ pick up of your daughter.  (delivery scratched out)

Any deviation of my instructions
will result in the immediate
execution of your daughter. You
will also be deprived her remains
for proper burial. The two
gentlemen watching over your daughter
do ^not particularly like you so I
advise you not to provoke them.
Speaking to anyone about your
situation, such as police, F.B.I., etc.,
will result in your daughter being
beheaded. If we catch you talking
to a stray dog, she dies. If you
alert bank authorities, she dies.
If the money is in any way
marked or tampered with, she
dies. You will be searched for
electronic devices and if any are
found, she dies. You can try to
deceive us but be warned that
we are familiar with law enforcement
countermeasures and tactics. You
stand a 99% chance of killing
your daughter if you try to out
smart us. Follow our instructions
and you stand a 100% chance
of getting her back. You and
your family are under constant
scrutiny as well as the authorities.
Don’t try to grow a brain
John. You are not the only
fat cat around so don’t think
that killing will be difficult.
Don’t underestimate us John,
Use that good southern common
sense of yours. It is up to
you now John!

Victory !
