Mystery of tied-up naked woman in storm drain found after passersby heard screams – but no one knows how she got there


A TIED-UP naked woman was trapped in a storm drain and she refuses to tell officials how she got there reportedly. 

The woman was found after a man heard “a low-pitched voice calling for help” on Friday afternoon.

He spotted the nude woman while he was leaving India’s Grill on South Cleveland Avenue, in Fort Myers, Florida around 2.30pm and called the police to report the case.

Firefighters were sent out to rescue the woman, who was reportedly sitting at the bottom of the drain.

The rescue team were able to lift the woman out after removing a heavy metal grate covering the drain.

A police report revealed that her legs were tied together with straps but she refused to clue the police in as to how she became tied up. 

After detectives reviewed three days’ worth of video from a nearby CCTV, there were still signs of anyone  going near the drain.

Police came to the conclusion that the woman was a transient who had been lodging at a nearby motel. Travelodge motel staff confirmed she had stayed at the hotel for multiple days last month.

How she got there remains a mystery. 

Witness Bryant McCauley said the metal grill covering the storm drain is extremely heavy.

He told reporters, “Either she was very, very strong, or someone opened it up for her with a crowbar.”

Witness Tim Brown noted: “Someone doesn’t just bound themselves and climb in there.”
