A WOMAN who was found tied up and naked in a storm drain has refused to tell officials how she got there.
The woman was rescued after a man heard “a low-pitched voice calling for help” on Friday afternoon in Florida.
He spotted the nude woman while he was leaving India’s Grill in Fort Myers around 2.30pm and called the police.
Firefighters were sent out to rescue the woman, who was reportedly sitting at the bottom of the drain.
The rescue team was 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 tell the police how she became tied up.
Detectives reviewed three days’ worth of video from a nearby CCTV, but there was no sign 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.”
