Parents of Kayla Mueller, the US aid worker who was reportedly captured, raped and tortured by the now deceased leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi are claiming there is a chance their daughter may still be alive. As Fox News reports:
Kayla’s parents, Carl and Martha Mueller, told the “Today Show” that following ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s death over the weekend, they were able to speak to President Trump. During their conversation, they told the president about their “1 percent chance” theory.
“I was able to tell him our 1 percent chance that Kayla’s still alive and why we feel that 1 percent chance is still there,” Carl told the outlet. “And he said, ‘I hadn’t heard that. I’ll look into that Monday.'”
Kayla, 26, was a humanitarian worker from Prescott, Ariz., who was captured while leaving a hospital in Aleppo, Syria, during that nation’s bloody civil war in 2013. She is believed to have been tortured and raped by Baghdadi himself until her death 18 months later.
Although her death was confirmed via pictures sent by the terror group, Kayla’s body was never found.
