    TROY, Mo. - Four people from Troy, Mo., northwest of St. Louis, are accused of planning a kidnapping to teach a boy not to be too nice.

    Police in Troy, Mo., assisted the Department of Family Services on Wednesday. Deputies learned a 6-year-old boy was kidnapped by a male while walking home from school on Monday.

    Allegedly, Denise Kroutil, the boy’s aunt, approached a co-worker, Nathan Firoved, and asked him to kidnap her nephew to “scare” him because he was “too nice” to people, according to the news release.

    The victim’s mother, Elizabeth Hupp, and grandmother, Rose Brewer, both agreed the boy should be kidnapped to teach him a terrorizing life lesson, authorities said.

    According to the news release, Firoved lured the boy to his truck and told him he would “never see his mommy again,” and he would be “nailed to the wall of a shed.” He then drove the boy for a while before bringing the 6-year-old to his family’s basement and left him there.

    CNN reports the adults also told the child he would be sold as a sex slave.

    The boy’s family and Firoved remained in contact by cellphone during the entire incident, according to the news release. The boy’s aunt yelled at him, and eventually the boy was led upstairs and lectured on the dangers of strangers.

    According to the news release, family members told investigators their primary intent was to educate the boy and they felt they did nothing wrong.

    It’s believed the event took place in four hours.

    The boy later told school officials about the incident, and they contacted the Division of Family services. The child was placed in protective custody.

    Firoved, Brewer and Kroutil are charged with Felony Kidnapping, Felonious Restraint and Felony Abuse and Neglect of a Child and are held in Lincoln County Jail under a $250,000 cash-only bond.

    Hupp is charged with Felony Kidnapping and Felony Abuse and Neglect of a child and held under a $250,000 cash-only bond.

    Kid has a better chance with strangers than this lot. Stats show majority of kids raped and murdered are from the family unit or those familiar to them.

    Can you imagine that 4 adults agreed to that? Not one of them had the thought to say, maybe this isn't such a good idea?

    I read that the mother is 25. She looks 50 in that mug shot. My guess is meth.

    How can people with a sub 50 IQ teach anyone anything?
