32-Year-Old Arrested for Enrolling in School as a 15-Year-Old
This was not quite a real-life episode of 21 Jump Street or the movie Billy Madison, but a woman in her 30's did try to go back to school. Her name is Michaelann Goodrich, but she enrolled at Cairo-Durham High School in New York as Riley Madison who she portrayed as a 15-year-old homeless girl. Goodrich attended a full day of class and even rode the bus before being discovered.
So far the school and authorities have no idea if mental illness played a role or what her motives might have been. WNYT reported that Goodrich already has a high school diploma which only makes the story even stranger.
As you can imagine, given the history of school shootings this could have had a bad ending. For now, we can all be grateful that something bad did not happen at the school because of this. Let us know if you would or would not like the chance to go back and relive your high school days, as a teenager of course. Comment below or on our Facebook page.
