Video shows police rescuing woman whose ex-boyfriend chained her to the floor by her neck

A Kentucky woman is speaking out after she was found by police chained to the floor of a home in Louisville, WDRB reported.

Jonna Wilson was rescued by police and firefighters on Wednesday, Aug. 16. “I said, ‘This is my only time, if I didn’t get free now, I’ll be dead,'” she said, adding that she was chained up for around five hours.

“He made me strip naked, he put the chain around my neck, he called his friend and said, ‘I’ve got to take this equipment back to Lowe’s. When I come back, I’m going to kill you.’ I only had a few minutes to get out.”

Police responded to the home after getting calls from neighbors who heard a woman screaming for help.

“The neighbors right here, they called 911 and they came and got me,” Wilson said. “If not, he would have killed me.”

“Every door was screwed shut,” Wilson said. “The fire department couldn’t even knock down the doors, that’s how bad it was screwed, every window was bolted, every exit, there is no exit in the house.”

Police found Wilson chained to the floor with the chain around her neck, secured with a MasterLock.

“He has a key to get inside and outside,” Wilson said. “You have to have a key to get out, as soon as I seen him lock the door, I knew I wasn’t going to get out. He said, ‘You want to do this the hard way or do this the easy way?’ I said, ‘I want to do this the easy way,’ so I let him put the chain around my neck and he started choking me with it.”

The suspect, who police are still looking for, was apparently Wilson’s former boyfriend. The two have a child together.
