‘Barefoot Bandit’ says his mother has died
SEATTLE (AP) — The former teenage car, boat and plane thief who became known as the “Barefoot Bandit” says his mother has died.
KIRO-Radio reports Colton Harris-Moore said Wednesday that his mother, Pam Kohler, died Tuesday night.
Harris-Moore, now 25, had earlier spoken of cryogenically freezing his mother with the hope that medical advances would allow her to be revived and her lung cancer treated.
Harris-Moore is serving a six-year prison sentence at the Stafford Creek Corrections Center and is set to be released this summer.
