LISTEN: Ohio Woman Calls 911 in Dramatic Escape from Suspected Serial Killer
An Ohio woman escaped from a suspected serial killer after she got a hold of her attacker's cell phone and called 911.
Two days ago, a woman in Ashland called 911 from a residence, which appeared abandoned.
"I've been abducted," she whispered to the dispatcher after the suspect fell asleep.
Police quickly arrived and found the woman and arrested her alleged abductor, Shawn Grate.
Two bodies, however, were found at the scene, and authorities said Grate told them about another body in Richland County at a house that was burned to the ground in June.
One of the deceased women was later identified as 43-year-old Stacey Stanley, who was reported missing on September 8.
A friend of Stanley's posted a warning to other women on Facebook, explaining that Grate "befriended" Stanley while she was at a gas station with a flat tire.
A GoFundMe page was set up to help the family after her murder. The identities of the other two victims were not announced.
Authorities have not announced a motive or how the women were killed.
Grate is jailed on an abduction charge and is expected to soon face charges for the killings.
