Facebook Status Update Saves Woman, Child in Hostage Situation

leave a comment »

A Utah woman held captive for five days used a Facebook status update to save her and her 17-month-old son from a grisly hostage situation.

The woman hid in a closet with a laptop and posted a message saying that she and her son would be “dead by morning” if no one came to their aid, Police Sgt. Jon Arnold told The Associated Press. A friend read the post and notified police, who came to her rescue on Saturday.

Police arrested Troy Reed Critchfield, 33, who was jailed Saturday while they investigate charges of aggravated kidnapping, child abuse, aggravated assault, forcible sodomy, domestic violence, animal cruelty and other charges.
