911

A woman has been rescued by Ashland, Ohio, police after she called 911 when her alleged captor was sleeping just a few feet away from her. According to the 911 call, the woman told the dispatcher she had been kidnapped and was afraid the man would wake up and catch her. She said the man was “strong.”

Police Arrest 40-Year-Old Homeless Man, Then Find 2 Bodies

The woman was reportedly kidnapped on Sunday and was forced to participate in sexual activity, according to court documents. The woman was being held in an abandoned house and she said the man who was arrested had a Taser.

As police searched in and around the house, they uncovered the remains of two women. One of the women has been identified and was reported missing last Thursday, Sept. 8. She is from Greenwich, Ohio. A GoFundMe page has been set up by friends of the family to help with funeral costs.

The other woman has not been identified. Court documents state the woman was killed between Aug. 16 and Sept. 13. According to the Ashland County prosecutor, the man has been charged with two counts of murder and one charge of kidnapping.

Man Leads Police To Yet Another Body

Apparently, there was more to this story still, as the man reportedly led police to another body. This body was found in Richland County, Ohio, near a home that had been burned. There was no identification made for that body, either. No charges have been filed in that case at this time.

Kidnapping and Murder Charges

Even though the man arrested in this case is facing extremely serious charges, it is not known if the prosecution is already working on a plea deal with him for the information they received on the third, unidentified body. Even if that is the case, the man is entitled to a defense against the charges, a fair trial and an appeal of an unfavorable verdict. An experienced criminal defense attorney will work diligently to investigate all the facts in the case, examine all the evidence, review all of the prosecution’s witnesses’ statements and much more. Anyone charged with a crime has rights and those rights must be protected – no matter what the crime may be.
