Police: No evidence teen was threatened over Christianity
by John Couwels
A Florida law enforcement report has found no credible evidence that a teenager's father threatened to kill her for converting from Islam to Christianity.
The 17-year-old girl, Rifqa Bary, ran away from her family in Columbus, Ohio, in July and took refuge in the home of the Rev. Blake Lorenz with the Global Revolution Church in Orlando, Florida. The girl was moved into foster care under the supervision of Florida's Department of Children and Family after she said in a sworn affidavit that her Muslim father threatened her.
An investigative report by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement was released Monday after a juvenile court seal order expired.
"Our investigation has provided no clear evidence of criminal activity," said the state report.
