DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — BocaNewsNow.com just obtained the 911 call made when a passerby found a missing woman in a Delray Beach sewer drain. The woman in the drain, Lyndsey Kennedy, apparently has drug issues and her mother says she makes “bad choices.”
This is the narrative of the police report which tells the entire story: (If the 911 call does not appear below, click here for full access to our report).
“I responded to the intersection of W Atlantic Ave and SW 11th Ave in reference to a female that was stuck inside the sewer. Upon arrival DBFD was already on scene working on trying to get the female out. The subject’s name was Lyndsey Kennedy. While FD was trying to extract Kennedy, I made contact with (redacted) who stated that while she was parked on the corner she could hear a female yelling for help. She noticed the voice was coming from the sewer. She exited her vehicle and saw Kennedy completely naked sitting in the sewer.”
“(The caller) immediately called the police. FD was eventually able to extract Kennedy and she was immediately transported to Delray Medical Center to be treated for dehydration. Upon interviewing Kennedy she advised Sgt Trapasso and I that she went for a swim in a canal near her boyfriend’s house on 3/03/21. She stated her boyfriend lives in a housing complex in West Delray Beach called The Oasis. While she was swimming she came across a doorway near a shallow part of the canal. She stated she entered the doorway and noticed a tunnel. She claimed that she became curious to where the tunnel led and continued to follow it.”
Continues the report: “That tunnel led to another tunnel and so on until she realized that she was lost. Kennedy claimed that she had been walking around the sewer system for approximately 3 weeks. Finally Kennedy stated she saw some light and decided to sit in the place where she was located because she could see that there were people walking passed her. A computer check revealed that Kennedy was reported missing by her boyfriend 20 days ago on 3/03/21 out of PBSO. DBPD sent the hit comfirmation letting them know she had been recovered. After interviewing Kennedy she appeared very lucid during our whole conversation. Although her (telling) of the events leading up to her being located are unusual, she did not meet the criteria for a baker act. After our interview I contacted our department’s service population advocte to see if she could be of any assistance. I was later advised that she called South County Mental Health to respond to the hospital to do a mental assesment of Kennedy. I also contacted Kennedy’s mother, Jane Ruggeri, to get additional info on her daughter. I was told Kennedy has a history of mental illness and is a frequent user of illegal narrcotics. She also stated that Kennedy has has a history of doing odd thing and making bad decissions when she is high on drugs. It was also found out that Kennedy is a Methadone patient and she had her last dose on 3/02/21 a day before she was reported missing.”
