The man then dragged her in her nightgown into the shower with him, but said he was not warm enough, so made them both get in the bath.
He then yanked her out and, 十代の若者は、火曜日にプリマス地方裁判所で殺人容疑で無罪を主張した後、メンタルヘルスの評価を受けるように命じられました, went through the house – collecting two kitchen knives, disconnecting phones – before locking her in a basement bathroom.
Holt did exercises to try and keep warm inside the bathroom, which had no windows, and which was barricaded shut with a chair.
‘I was doing marching and stretching as much as I could,’ 彼女は言いました.
Holt’s eldest daughter Meredith Holt-Caldwell, who lives in Seattle, noticed that her mother was not responding to text messages and had not sent her daily Wordle – something she never missed.
‘I’m across the country and I noticed this,’ said Holt-Caldwell.
‘I never thought in a million years that this was happening, but it was.’
