Cops Seek Pinup Girl-Law Student's Accomplices


Tom Hartzell, Fulbright's attorney, did not respond to a message left Tuesday by ABC News, but suggested to the Arizona Daily Star that the ex-boyfriend's criminal history may compromise his credibility as a witness.

"We're eager to see the process through, and for the truth of this matter to come to light," Hartzell said. "My preliminary investigation indicates the alleged victim is not the most savory individual, and will be coming to court with a whole lot of baggage of his own."

The victim, who has not been named by authorities, was charged with assault and disorderly conduct in March; those charges were reportedly dismissed last month after he completed a court-sanctioned program.

It is the policy of the Tucson Police Department not to name the victims of violent crimes, Pacheco said. "If they're listed as a victim, we don't release any of their information," he said. "We can't really talk about what the victim may or may not have been involved in with the law."

But Pacheco also said that the victim's injuries were consistent with a kidnapping.

Fulbright will appear in a 2008 calendar for that features women in bikinis brandishing firearms. Fulbright is Miss May, according to Jeff Hawley, a founder of Title2Media, the company that produced the calendar for Subguns. In her photograph, Fulbright is pictured carrying an HK 51 machine gun.

"We were really shocked to see the story," Hawley told ABC News. "She was a very nice individual; she had modeled professionally."

Like Fulbright, Hammond was arrested in the days after the abduction. He was charged with the same crimes and remains held on $50,000 bond.
