Kidnapped Mother's Family Comes to Her Rescue;Cousin Shoots&Kills Abducter

Kidnapped Mother's Family Comes to Her Rescue;Cousin Shoots&Kills Abducter | Assignment 3 for Weebly | Scoop.it
The family of a kidnapped Louisiana mother tracked down and killed the father of her child who was holding her hostage in an abandoned home, authorities said.

 

Arceneaux's cousin approached the home, kicked in the door in and entered, Judice said. Inside, he found Thomas with the woman. Thomas then began stabbing Arceneaux, and a confrontation ensued.

"The cousin, who was armed, began firing several shots at Thomas," Judice said. "After a couple of shots, [Arceneaux] was able to get free of him and they escorted her out of the house."

Arcenaux suffered several stab wounds and was taken by ambulance to Lafayette General Medical Center, where she is in stable condition, Judice said. It is not known if Arceneaux had been stabbed before her cousin found her inside the home, officials said.

Meanwhile, officers who heard the gun shots fired surrounded the home, Judice said. Upon entering, they found Thomas' lifeless body on the ground. He had sustained several gunshot wounds.

Thomas' cause of death is not known, Judice said. An autopsy on the body will be conducted by Lafayette Parish Coroner Ken Odinet, but it is not known when it will take place.

ABC News' attempts to reach Odinet were not immediately successful.

Thomas did not own the abandoned home, Judice said. At this point, there is no known connection between Thomas and the property's owners.

Arceneaux told investigators that the home was the only place she remembers being held hostage, Judice said. She said she had not eaten or drunk anything since her abduction on Wednesday.

No charges have been filed against the man who shot Thomas, and it is unlikely that the man will be charged, Judice said.

"In the state of Louisiana, you have a right to protect yourself and others from imminent bodily harm," he said. "We believe at this point, based on evidence and statements collected, that this guy was acting in defense of Ms. Arceneaux and thus, was within the state law."

Thankfully the family didn't give up on their search and took action of their own to find her. Thankfully her cousin was armed and brave enough to enter the abandoned home where she was being held against her will and saved her.  I wonder what the anti-gun nuts and anti-stand your grand nuts think of this story? They probably think the family should have let the police find her and would have told the cousin not to enter the home with a loaded gun.
