Protesters who believe Lena Lunsford knows more about her child's disappearance than she's saying confronted her outside the Elkins Federal Courthouse. Lunsford, whose 3-year-old daughter Aliayah has been missing since September 24th, had just plead guilty to a federal welfare fraud.
She faces up to five years in prison. An FBI sting caught her swapping food EBT benefits for cash at a Weston Wal-mart while agents and troopers were trying to find her daughter and clearly looking hard at her.
The women who challenged her want answers that the 29-year-old woman may or may not have. Investigators have labeled the girl's disappearance a crime, but have named no suspects and made no arrests.
