Daughter held in Ireland `lost her mind`: US mom

Before her daughter disappeared last fall, Christine Mott recalls that the 31-year-old who had been held in connection with an alleged assassination plot announced she had converted to Islam.



Leadville: Before her daughter disappeared last fall, Christine Mott recalls that the
31-year-old who had been held in connection with an alleged assassination plot announced she had converted to Islam and told her family they`d go to hell if they didn`t follow in her steps.

Jamie Paulin-Ramirez also began talking about Jihad with her Muslim stepfather and spent most of her time online as she withdrew from her family, Mott said.

"We were enemies," Christine Mott said. "We couldn`t even speak to each other."

Last year, on September 11, Paulin-Ramirez left Leadville, Colorado, an old silver mining town west of Denver that was Colorado`s second-largest city during its heyday. She took her six-year-old son with her, her mother said.

A US official, who was not authorised to discuss the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity, said yesterday that Paulin-Ramirez had been detained in Ireland in connection with an alleged plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist who had offended many Muslims.

Irish police said later yesterday that they had released without charge an American woman, who they didn`t identify, and three others arrested in Ireland over an alleged plot to assassinate the cartoonist, Lars Vilks.
