Police in Lincolnwood, Illinois, apprehended a 32-year-old male after he held a 77-year-old lady captive for 17 hours in her house. After failing to provide her daughter with the daily Wordle puzzle, the woman’s family contacted the police to conduct a welfare check.
While everyone was saved, the story’s disturbing elements should serve as a warning.
The Whole Story
Denyse Holt, 80, was resting alone at home when a nude guy covered in blood sneaked into her bedroom in the dead of night, according to CBS Chicago’s investigation. In her own words, she claims she didn’t panic when the guy climbed onto her bed and assured Holt that he had no intentions of “harming” or “molesting” her at all.
The guy then instructed her to even get out of her room and hop in a bath with him, but then went back on his word and told Holt that he “wasn’t warm enough.”. He then confined her in a basement bathroom where he was bleeding heavily after breaking in via a window, and pulled her into the tub many times before dragging her back out.
As per Holt, she maintained her composure and followed his instructions because she was “trying to survive.” Volt told CBS Chicago that- “He took two knives from my kitchen. He told me he liked those.” “I didn’t think I was going to live.”
