I am so confused.
Here is the timeline and try to follow along.
While Chapman was playing a game against the Pirates his hotel room was robbed, his lady friend Claudia Manrique (later described as his girlfriend) claims that the robbers busted in, threatened her at gunpoint and tied her up with Napkins while they robbed the room.
Everyone, including the Cops thought this was suspect and questioned Manrique for 10 hours before her “HUSBAND” came and picked her up.
Shockingly now after more questioning Manrique has changed her story and it is even more unbelievable.
One thing not taken was a Louis Vuitton bag containing more than $200,000 worth of Mr. Chapman’s jewelry. Ms. Manrique said her attacker held her at gunpoint and demanded the bag of jewelry several times, ransacking the room when she refused to relinquish it. But, police reports note, she could not explain how the man knew the bag of jewelry was in the room in the first place.
When detectives confronted her about discrepancies in her story, she began to cry. A polygraph test showed she was not being truthful about the robbery, according to the report.
Ms. Manrique eventually changed her story, saying the robber first approached her at a CVS pharmacy and threatened to harm her friend in Silver Spring if she did not give him her room number. The man showed up a few hours later, and she let him in, fearing for her friend’s safety.
So what was Chapman’s take? According to the P-G, he “told police he began dating the Colombian native in April, and she would meet him in other cities where the Reds were playing.” Here’s more:
He later told detectives that Ms. Manrique had been receiving unwanted phone calls throughout her stay in Pittsburgh. He believed they were from a man in Maryland to whom she owed $9,000 on a $30,000 debt that allowed her to gain entry into the country, police reports say.
Mr. Chapman told police that Ms. Manrique “wasn’t acting like herself” when she asked him if he could book her an earlier flight home.
Believe it or not there is even more to the story.
