This is a true story about an American girl. Some names have been removed due to legal requirements, but all of the dates and events are factual. The
girl came from an Islamic family living in Houston. She met a boy named Cory Beavers while the two were studying medicine at MD Anderson. Cory
introduced her to his twin brother, Coty, in December 2009. In November 2011,the girl introduced Cory to a friend of hers named Gelareh. Cory and
Gelareh began dating.
Through online chats the girl began to develop feelings for Coty and the two fell in love. However, her father was very unhappy to find out his
daughter was dating an American.
All communication from her unexplainably stopped during the summer of 2011. No emails, no text messages, no phone calls. The girl had mysteriously
After two long weeks, she showed up late one night on the doorsteps of the Beavers' home. The family learned she'd been locked in her room,
handcuffed to a bed the entire time.
She explained to Coty how her father had taken her younger brother back to Jordan in an attempt to punish him for selling drugs. Her brother
confessed that he wasn't the only one not abiding by his fathers' rules and told his father how his sister had a boyfriend-an American Christian-and
the two had been seeing each other for over a year. The girls father was furious. He called his wife, giving her strict instructions to keep the girl
from all forms of communication until he returned from Jordan. The stepmother and older sister took away the girls' phone, laptop, and handcuffed her
to the bed. The only time she'd been allowed out of the room had been the day prior to her father's return so she could take a shower. Seizing the
only opportunity she had, the girl climbed out a window, escaping with only the clothes on her back, and fled to Coty's house. Standing on the
doorstep in the dark, she asked if Coty and his family would help her and take her in. They agreed.
The next few days Coty and the Beavers family were visited multiple times by police. The girls' father had made allegations that his daughter had run
away and was being held against her will by the Beavers family. Her father also claimed his daughter had stolen a large sum of money from his house
when she'd left. (Why there was a few hundred thousand dollars cash in a home where nobody has a job is still being investigated). When no action
was taken by authorities, her father then contacted the university she was attending and reported that the girl had stolen "poisonous substances"
from the medical lab to use in a "murder" plot against him. The school checked the lab inventory and found the claim to be false.
Obsessed with some skewed form of vengeance, her father began to patrol the Beavers' neighborhood, going door-to-door and handing out fliers with
Coty's picture, offering neighbors one hundred dollar bills to keep him informed on Coty and his daughters' coming and goings.
During the first few weeks the girl lived with the Beavers, she discovered her father had opened numerous credit accounts in her name and incurred
over $50,000 in credit card debt. These same credit card accounts were also used by her father to pay for background checks on each of the Beavers
family members. The girl turned to the U.S. justice system, seeking a protective order against her father, which was granted. She then provided a
copy of the protective order to each of the credit card companies in an effort to restore her credit. A few weeks later she received letters
indicating the credit card accounts had been reinstated. When she contacted the credit card companies she discovered her father had forged a power of
attorney, and-despite the protective order-the fraudulent accounts were reactivated.
During this time, the Beavers' family experienced numerous counts of vandalism and harassment. Late night phone calls threatening them, the tires on
the cars parked in their driveway had all been slashed, and rocks had been thrown through the windows of their house. The Beavers family contacted the
police and made the necessary reports, but little was done and the harassment continued.
