Normally when I
post intimate photos
stripped from a person's social networking profile, it serves no better purpose than to attract web traffic off of the fleeting popularity of the latest semi-attractive criminal whose ill-fated exploits have made national news. These exploitative bikini photos
, however, may actually help the FBI catch a trio of dangerous fugitives. So take a good look and remember that even if you see this Florida stripper
in a bikini and palming something as innocuous as a pool cleaner, you should still consider her armed and dangerous.
Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, and her younger brothers Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, and Ryan Dougherty, 21, went on the run Tuesday after opening fire on and disabling a cop cruiser that attempted to pull the trio over for speeding in Zephyrhills, FL. Later that day the "Dougherty Gang" robbed a Georgia bank about 200 miles away with AK-47s.
The Doughertys have all been in and out of trouble with the law much of their adult lives. Most recently Lee Grace was wanted on probation violations after a hit and run incident May 17. Ryan was sentenced to 12 years of probation on Aug. 1 for sending nearly 400 sexually explicit text messages
to an 11-year-old girl he met on MySpace. As part of his plea bargain Ryan was required to register as a sex offender. His failure to do so was a violation of his probation and would have resulted in jail time had the trio been pulled over in Zephyrhills.
Police believe the three siblings are armed with an arsenal of weapons they had stockpiled in an underground bunker below the house they shared. While the gang has not killed anyone yet, no one is expecting this crime spree to end peacefully. The three even sent their mother a prophetic text message, reading, "There's a time for all of us to die."
In what now seems like an obvious sign that Lee Grace, a former exotic dancer at Cheaters in Cocoa Beach, was due for a crime spree, below is how she described herself on her Flickr profile:
"I am a Floridian. Born and raised in Seminole County. I have a huge crazy family. I'm 28 but act like I'm 17 most of the time. I love to farm and shoot guys and wreck cars. I'm a redneck and proud of it. I like milk and German engineering and causing mayhem with my siblings."
