A nine months pregnant woman (22) is recovering after an horrible ordeal. She was kidnapped, set on fire, and then shot in the back. She was just coming back from a drive-in movie with her ex boyfriend when she reported that the garage suddenly closed, she was blind folded, and a gun was put to her head. Her ex-boyfriend, also 22, — and father of the unborn child — is being questioned, reports the Detroit News.
The ex-couple had gone to a drive-in movie, and she was returning him to the home of his new girlfriend when the incident occurred, according to Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green.
“He opened the detached garage and told her to pull in,” Green said. “She did and before she could turn the car off, he closed the garage door behind her. Someone grabbed her by the neck and put a gun to her head.”
The primary motive being considered at this moment is paternity, according to the News.
After her hands, feet and mouthed were duct taped, the woman was forced into the backseat of her car and driven to an abandoned lot. “You know why this is happening,” the unknown assailant told her after asking her how far along she was. He then covered her with lighter fluid and threw a lit match on her, reports the News.
“She instinctively jimmies her way out of the car and starts rolling on the ground to put out the fire,” Green said. As she was attempting to put out the fire, two shots were fired at her, one hitting her in the back, before she stopped moving.
“She said she basically played dead and she thinks that’s what saved her because she heard the guy run away.”
