D’Andre Lane says the media and police are making him look as if he had something to do with his daughter’s disappearance.
“This is unfair,” Lane said according to the The Detroit News. “I’m the bad guy right now. But I don’t care what people say; if my baby comes home, it won’t even matter.”
But Lane’s lawyer, Terry L. Johnson, says it matters more than his client may think.
“I’ve advised him to stay inside,” Johnson said. “He wants to go out, but I told him it’s not a good idea for two reasons: One, every step he takes will be focused on, and the focus should be on finding his daughter. Second, there’s a safety concern. He’s getting death threats because of the information that’s coming out about him not cooperating with the investigation.”
There are several reasons why the media are focusing on Lane.
When Lane was in police custody, the FBI flew in a polygrapher to administer a lie detector test. A police source told The News Lane scored poorly when asked two specific questions during a failed test: “Did you have anything to do with her disappearance?” and “Do you know where she is now?”
