Check out her MySpace profile.


A runaway foster child showed up in a gym yesterday wearing only boxers and a chain attached to his ankle. The 17-year-old said he had been held captive for over a year.

Girl Scout leader and stay-at-home mom Kelly Layne Lau is now under arrest along with her husband Michael Schumacher. Their next court date is Thursday and bail has been set at $1.2 million. They're being held on suspicion of conspiracy, torture, kidnapping, child beating, false imprisonment by force and paying a parent for adoption of a child, according to online jail information. The couple's four children, ages 1 to 9, are in the custody of social service workers.

The aunt of the boy has also been arrested in connection with the case, police said today.

We took a look at Kelly Layne Lau's MySpace page (which has since been taken down) for some clues into how a seemingly "normal" mom could be be capable of such an unspeakable act.

Here's what we found:

About me: 30 yr. old mom of 4 beautiful kids ... 9, .... 4, .... 2 and .... who just turned one.......Happily married to a man who I love to death. He is my best friend and a wonderful father to our 4 kids and I wouldn't trade him for anything in this world.


We live in Northern California where I am a stay at home mom and my husband is a Contractor. We have a typical life I guess-our oldest daughter is involved with Girl Scouts and .... is our Ballerina in training. My boys just kick back and wait there [sic] turn to do something fun. We have a dog named BUBBA and no white picket fence but our neighbor has one. LOL!!!!!!

Favorite TV shows: Six Feet Under, Family Plots, Nip/Tuck and Dexter. Anything that's gruesome. I'm weird I guess.

Um, that's an understatement.

We will bring you more details as this disturbing case develops.
