A nun from Missouri was caught smuggling two pounds of cocaine in her high heels… which she says her online boyfriend tricked her into.
Denise Marie Woodrum was stopped at customs at the Sydney Airport when officers found she had stuffed drugs into her shoe heels. Her HIGH-HEELED shoes. Woodrum’s layer claims she was tricked into smuggling the drugs by a man she met online, Hendrik Cornelius. “She was groomed to provide a financial gain for this person,” her lawyer says. “She went on this trip thinking she was bringing artifacts to him.”
Woodrum was apparently looking online for love after dealing with a divorce and some health problems that left her struggling financially. She thought she'd never find love again...so she turned to God. Well, at first. Her lawyer insists she was just a “vulnerable” woman being taken advantage of, but prosecutors aren’t so convinced. They claim she knew was she was doing, since they found texts proving her trip, and deed, was paid for. Lord only knows what the truth is, but Woodrum pled guilty to the drug importing charges.
