When Edward Snowden left behind his life in Hawaii several weeks ago to travel to Hong Kong and leak secrets about the NSA’s surveillance program PRISM, he also reportedly abandoned his girlfriend without telling her where he was going or what he was doing.
The Daily Mail has published photos of the 28-year-old former ballet dancer named Lindsay Mills, who now performs with the acrobatic group Waikiki Acrobatic Troupe in Honolulu. According to information obtained by the TV news program Inside Edition, Mills graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art and was living in home that Snowden rented.
In his initial interview with The Guardian‘s Glenn Greenwald, Snowden revealed that he had told his unnamed girlfriend that he was going away for a few week, though he did not tell her the reason. “That is not an uncommon occurrence for someone who has spent the last decade working in the intelligence world,” he said.
