Accused Kidnapper To Victim: “No Girl Gets Out Alive”
A West Fork man accused of holding a woman against her will for days has been released from jail on bond.
Terry Bradley, 59, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of false imprisonment and terroristic threatening. He was released Monday from the Washington County Detention Center on $5,000 bond, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
A woman told investigators she went to Bradley’s home last Tuesday to retrieve some of her belongings. Bradley then held her at the house against her will with a gun over the next four days, threatening to shoot her in the back or cut her throat if she ran, according to a preliminary report from the Washington County Prosecutor’s Office.
Early Saturday afternoon, Bradley told the woman they were going for a ride, and made her get in the back seat of his car, the report states.
Deputies said Bradley made the woman put a towel over her head and told her she would like the gasoline in the back seat. He also told her that “no girl gets out alive when they try to leave,” the woman told authorities.
When Bradley got out of the car to lock a gate, the woman ran to Malico Mountain Road. Bradley chased her with his silver Chrysler vehicle before blocking the road, deputies said.
A white truck then pulled up, and the woman got into the vehicle and escaped, according to the preliminary report.
Washington County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Bradley the next morning.
