There’s Something Strange About the Harvard Child Abduction Case of Suspect Francisco Tulul

A Houston, Texas man has been charged with abducting a 15-year-old girl Thursday November 23, 2017 from far northwest suburban Harvard.

McHenry County sheriff’s office says that deputies were called about 1:30 p.m. Thursday, November 23, 2017 (Thanksgiving Day) to the block of 11000 Route 14 in unincorporated Harvard to respond to reports of a missing female juvenile.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s office says relatives of the girl told McHenry County Sheriff’s investigators that the girl had been interacting via social media with a man who called himself “Frankie” who informed the girl he was driving up from Houston, Texas to see the her. About 1:00 p.m. Thanksgiving Day the girl left work to meet him at the Big Foot Inn, 11508 Route 14 in Harvard.

Investigators determined that the man, later identified as Francisco Tulul, age 19, of Houston, Texas, intended to take the girl to Houston, according to the sheriff’s office. A state-wide search was launched and Illinois State Police found the girl with Tulul about 7:20 p.m. at a rest stop in downstate Edwardsville, about 300 miles from Harvard, and more importantly less than 30 miles from the Illinois state line via I-55.

Over 48 hours ago McHenry County Sheriff’s office reported that Tulul was taken into custody and charged with a felony count of child abduction, but there is no record of Tulul in the McHenry County inmate database, and no mug shot has been posted or available.

Tulul’s bond was set at only $20,000, although he apparently was at most 30 miles away from abducting an Illinois minor across the state line.

In the McHenry County Correction Division online inmate listings section, the records include records with booking or confined dates as late as Monday evening, November 27, 2017. There are no inmates matching Tulul’s name, and there are no inmates listed with abduction charges as of 7:30 p.m. Monday November 27, 2017.

The Northwest Herald reported that a spokesperson for the McHenry County Jail said Tulul was not yet in the McHenry County jail’s custody Saturday afternoon.

Is there still a delay in processing? Or is there an explanation for the delay in processing? Where is he detained?
