A Missouri family plotted to have a six-year-old boy kidnapped to teach him a lesson about strangers because he was “too nice” to people, officials said Thursday.

The Lincoln County, Mo. Sheriff’s Office learned of a kidnapping in Troy, Mo. on Feb. 4.

Investigators learned that the plot was made before Feb. 2 when 38-year-old Denise Kroutil approached 23-year-old co-worker Nathan Firoved about the kidnapping plan. She allegedly asked him to kidnap her nephew to “scare” him. The victim’s mother, 25-year-old Elizabeth Hupp, and grandmother, 58-year-old Rose Brewer, agreed with the plan to teach the boy a lesson.

Firoved, Brewer and Koutil were charged with kidnapping, felonious restraint, and abuse/neglect of a child. Hupp was charged with kidnapping and abuse/neglect of a child.

Authorities said Firoved parked his pickup truck by the boy’s bus stop and waited for him to be dropped off after school. He then lured the six-year-old into his truck and drove off.
