From The New York Post:

May 16, 2005 — TAOS, N.M. – Jennifer Wilbanks wasn’t just running away from her wedding, she was running toward something – an old paramour with whom she had a steamy sexual relationship.

The bolting bride set her sights on New Mexico sometime during her three-day cross-country sprint from the altar because it’s the home of a short-lived fling, several sources told The Post.

But if Wilbanks harbored hope of reigniting an old passion, she would have been sorely disappointed.

“I would have turned her ass in, no question,” former flame Todd Kendrick told The Post. “And then,” he joked, “I’d have asked for the $100,000 reward.”

Also the price tag for the city of Duluth, Georgia’s search has dropped to $40,000. The city and Wilbanks lawyer are negotiating a possible settlement.

Other than voluminous eBay auctions, action figures, and hot sauce, the Runaway Bride phenomenon appears to be abaiting…
