Hi Justin,

According to this article, https://www.google.ca/amp/www.wevv.com/templates/AMP%3fcontentID=571959141

The kidnapping “experience”was for research purposes. That’s the only information I can find but I believe that she wanted to feel what it was like to be held captive because the plot of the manuscript she was writing at the time was about a girl who was kidnapped. I wish I could provide you with more information but I hope this answers some of your questions.
