    (circa 1951- )
    Born in Newland, North Carolina
    Arrested in England for abducting a Mormon missionary and making him her sex slave (1977)
    Skipped bail and fled the country
    Back in the news as Bernann McKinney after paying $53,000 to have her pet pit bull cloned (2008)
    She apparently will escape punishment for the abduction since British officials said they will not pursue extradition.
    She was arrested in Utah for stalking the same man she had kidnapped, but disappeared before the trial (1986).
    She was charged in her hometown with threatening another woman (2003).
    She named her dog 'Booger.'
    Bernann McKinney threatened to file a $10 million libel suit against anyone claiming she was Joyce McKinney before admitting they were one and the same.
    After her past came out, she complained, 'I thought people would be honest enough to see me as a person who was trying to do something good and not as a celebrity.'
    She is a former Miss Wyoming USA.
    She said of the man she abducted, 'I loved him so much that I would ski naked down Mount Everest with a carnation up my nose if he asked me to.'
    She insisted the missionary was a willing partner who claimed to have been kidnapped to avoid getting in trouble with the Mormon church.
    The Korean lab that cloned her dog charged only one third their standard rate because she agreed to help them with publicity; she succeeded beyond expectations.
