NBA journeyman recounts disturbing incident of seeing a ‘child’ or ‘woman’ caged in back of NYC cab

Philadelphia 76ers guard J.J. Redick shared a remarkable story of seeing a child or small woman caged under a blanket in the back of a Cadillac Escalade being used by a car service picking him up in New York City.

The player shared his tale on his podcast, saying his party demanded the driver stop and they got out, retrieving their personal  belongings.

The NBA journeyman was with his wife, Chelsea, and sister-in-law Kylee, who first took notice. Redick said told the driver someone was in the back of the vehicle and the man made a weak attempt to look under the blanket, only to claim there was no one there.

But as he pulled off, Redick said he saw a young female head popped up from under the blanket, complete with a ponytail.

He then called the police to report the incident.

A call was also made to the car service and Redick said he was told the driver had been disciplined for bringing along another person in the front seat — the problem being, of course, the person they saw was in the trunk, not the front seat.

Redick speculated on what he saw, offering a best-case scenario and a “darker” take on events.

“So, possible scenarios here: I think best-case for everyone involved is that maybe his sister or his cousin, or maybe a girlfriend or wife needed a ride across town and they didn’t want to pay for an Uber or taxi. That’s probably best-case scenario,” he siad.

“And then from there you can go darker,” Redick continued. “This is not funny, but child abduction, human trafficking. Like, Chelsea’s dead serious texting me today and she’s like, ‘I’m calling the FBI tip line and I’m opening a claim. This is serious.’ I don’t know what to make of it.”

“It definitely was not a dog,” the NBA player added. “I will say that. It was a human being in the back seat of his car, under a blanket in some sort of box or cage. That’s my story. ”
