Worthy Christian News » Young Woman Arrested for Attempting to Aid 'Islamic State'

DENVER, COLORADO (Worthy News)– A young Denver woman, 19, fell in love with an Islamic State (IS) jihadist online, vowed to aid the group, and then was arrested by authorities at an airport, ABC News reported.

Shannon Maureen Conley, 19, of Arvada, Colorado, was charged with conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization after FBI agents arrested her at Denver International Airport on April 8 as she tried to board a flight to Frankfurt, Germany, according to a U.S. criminal complaint and a supporting affidavit. She allegedly had connecting flights to Istanbul, Turkey, and then to Adana, Turkey, just a few hours' drive from the Syrian border.

Conley, licensed as a certified nurse's aide in Colorado, according to the affidavit, told investigators that she hoped to meet her online suitor in Syria and reside with him near the Turkish border as his wife and a camp nurse. Her parents told investigators her suitor was a 32-year-old Tunisian man, whose name is redacted in the documents. – Source
