Case Closed in Cape Girardeau Missouri
On October 25, 2008, Ronnie Preyer, a career criminal and registered sex offender broke into her home and brutally raped her. He eluded capture by the police.
On Halloween, at 2:00 AM he returned again. She was watching television when suddenly the power went out. She heard her basement door's window shatter. She tried to call 911. She could not. He had turned off the power to her home. He came crashing through the door. She was in the dark. Defenseless.
Or so he thought. She had borrowed a 12 gauge shotgun. As he burst into the room where she crouched trapped, she let loose a blast of buckshot straight into his chest. He collapsed. She escaped. The police arrived. He died at the hospital. No charges will be filed.
