A new Netflix docuseries explores the atrocities committed against young fast-food workers from the early 1990s through the mid-2000s.
The Netflix series: Don’t Pick Up the Phone captures the haunting tales of other young workers, including Louise Ogborn. It left the viewers wondering about her current whereabouts.
Who is Louise Ogborn?
Louise Ogborn is a victim of heinous sexual offenses performed through proxy.
In 2004, she was 18 years old and employed at a McDonald’s in Mount Washington, Kentucky.
She was putting in a double shift when a caller who claimed to be a police officer demanded to talk to her management.
Police eventually identified the alleged police officer as David Richard Stewart. The alleged police officer informed Ogborn’s management that a teenage employee, working while on duty, stole a woman’s bag.
He suggested that the employee either allow the management to search her at the restaurant. Or, that he sent the police to pick her up and interrogate her at the station.
Later, a jury declared Stewart not accountable.
He got clearance of all allegations in the case on October 31, 2006.
What Happened to Louise Ogborn?
Ogborn consented to a search by her employer, who she followed into her office. There the manager strips off under the impersonator’s orders.
Her clothes were eventually taken from her. But she got an apron to cover herself with.
The fictitious officer then instructed the manager to observe while the defenseless employee made to touch herself and engaged in exercises while naked to demonstrate that she was not hiding anything.
The cop instructed the manager to call her fiancé. And she further asked him to come and wait with the child when she informed him that she had to report back to duty and had not discovered anything.
The restaurant manager complied with the request, and her fiancé, Walter Nix Jr., arrived to keep an eye on Ogborn.
The “officer” handed Nix the phone and gave him the go-ahead to continue assaulting Ogborn for a number of hours.
Finally realizing a serious problem with the person on the other end of the phone, the assistant managers take action.
Where is Louise Today?
Louise had to abandon her plans to enroll at the University of Louisville. It’s because of acute PTSD and trauma related to the crimes.
She decided to speak up and sue McDonald’s for failing to safeguard her after undergoing years of intensive therapy.
The fast food company allegedly neglected to defend her, according to her. As early as 2002, crimes that strangely resembled this one – committed against McDonald’s, according to court documents.
She alleged that they should have instructed staff members to recognize and avoid fake calls that had hurt her.
In addition to $1.1 million in compensatory damages and expenses, Louise received $5 million in punitive damages in 2007.
McDonald’s refuted her accusations and reached a $1.1 million settlement with her, denying her punitive damages.
In her mid-thirties, Louise has married Jason Bolin and has two daughters with him.
