A NEW Netflix docuseries details the crimes committed against young workers at fast food restaurants across the country in the early ’90s to mid-2000s.
The Netflix series Don’t Pick Up the Phone captures the haunting stories of many young working women like Louise Ogborn — and has many viewers wondering where she is now.
Who is Louise Ogborn?
Louise Ogborn is the survivor of horrific sex crimes committed through a proxy.
She was 18 in 2004 when she worked at a McDonald’s restaurant in Mount Washington, Kentucky.
She was working a double shift when a caller asked to speak to her manager, posing as a police officer.
The suspected police officer – who was later identified as David Richard Stewart – told Ogborn’s manager that an employee on duty had stolen a woman’s bag and went on to describe the young worker.
He offered to either have the police sent to pick up the clerk and question her at the train station, or allow the manager to search her at the restaurant. Stewart was later found not guilty.
On October 31, 2006, he was cleared of all charges in the case.
What happened to Louise Ogborn?
Ogborn allowed her employer to search her and followed her to her office, where the impersonator instructed the manager to force her to strip naked.
She was given an apron to cover herself with, but her clothes were later taken away.
The fake officer then asked the manager to watch as the innocent employee was forced to touch herself and perform exercises naked to prove she was not hiding anything.
When the manager told the “police officer” that she had to return to duty and had found nothing, the officer ordered her to call her fiancé and have him come and wait with the young girl.
The manager did as she was told, and her fiancé, Walter Nix Jr., came to the restaurant to babysit Ogborn.
Nix received the phone and was ordered by the “Officer” to continue attacking Ogborn for several hours.
Eventually, the assistant managers realized something was wrong with the person on the other end of the line and intervened.
Where is Louise Ogborn today?
Suffering from severe post-traumatic stress disorder and trauma from the crimes, Louise canceled her plans to attend the University of Louisville.
After several years of intense therapy, she decided to speak up and sue McDonald’s for failing to protect her.
She claimed the fast-food chain failed to protect her. According to court records, McDonald’s had faced eerily similar crimes back in 2002.
She claimed they should have educated their employees about the type of prank calls that had harmed her.
In 2007, Louise was awarded $5 million in punitive damages and $1.1 million in compensatory damages.
McDonald’s contradicted her claims and settled the $1.1 million with her, leaving her with no punitive damages.
Today, Louise is in her thirties and is married to a man named Jason Bolin, with whom she has two daughters.
