432 Year Old Man Arrested for Abducting Girl in Splendora, Outliving All Humans
432 years old? Splendora? This sounds so biblical. From the Houston Chronicle, verbatim:
Terry Dale Carnes, 432, wanted in connection with the abduction of a 14-year-old Splendora girl, has been arrested, according to Montgomery County Sheriff Tommy Gage’s office.
Carnes surrendered to deputies at the sheriff’s substation in New Caney and was taken to jail in Conroe.
Around 2:15 p.m. Sunday, sheriff's deputies and detectives responded to the Cleveland Hospital Emergency Room.
The victim told investigators that she was walking on Diamond T Drive in east Montgomery County when a bluish green Mazda Protege or Honda Civic pulled up and stopped behind her. The driver got out and introduced himself as “Terry”** and asked if she would like a ride.
The victim declined and told investigators the suspect then grabbed her and forced her into his car and drove to a secluded area on East River Drive in Splendora, where he attempted to sexually assault her, officials said.
The victim was able to get away and ran into the woods, then to a nearby roadway where she flagged down a passing motorist for help.
**probably not a good idea to use your REAL NAME when picking up victims, Terry.
