Its just a shame these scum prey on the vulnerable like they do. Cases like these are why I have a permit to conceal, and I would pop this guy in a heartbeat with no remorse, alas these sickos only target moms and such. Really sick segment

It's possible that her attacker is incarcerated in prison for another crime, as to why this case remains unsolved. I'm sure his attack on "Debbie" wasn't his first or last violent offense.

I know we can never blame the victim in a situation like this, and the responsibility falls 100% on the person that committed the crime. That being said, I watched this recently and thought, you NEVER, NEVER, NEVER let them take you to the second location. I think he could tell she was terrified, but I find it highly unlikely that he would have killed all those people in the store and then what? If she had the getaway car, what was he going to do when the other shop owners called the police - walked?

I know she didn't want that on her conscience, the possibility of other people being harmed, but I feel that was her chance to save herself. Did he go into the store with the shotgun? It's very possible that being a liquor store the owner had a gun of his own or a way to call the police if someone weird was in the store. I'm so sorry this happened, but I regret that she didn't leave him there when she had the chance. At some point, when he was paying for the alcohol he must have had his back to her. And the fact that he even threatened to kill the others, means he had murderous intent and that she probably wasn't going to survive the encounter.

I had this thought suddenly today: what if this man is an out-of-state prison escapee? It occurred to me when I was reading an article about my home state having the third-highest number of unapprehended prison escapees in the country, with only California and New York having more.

Perhaps it sounds a bit far-fetched, but he did reportedly claim to have killed a man in New York, and got out of the area very quickly immediately afterward.

I don't know, what do you all think?

The scene they showed where she was walking out of the woods towards the cops on the highway is chilling. I wonder where "Debbie" is today?

Sorry to bump an old post, but one detail we shouldn't forget is that the perp took the car keys inside with him. Debbie's only option would have been to get out and run and there's always the danger that he could have shot her and everyone else in the store before taking her car and driving away.

Ernest Cherry looks like a promising suspect in this case, IMO. Here's a link (with a picture) to his DOC file. He is serving a life sentence for the brutal rape and attempted murder of a woman in NC from 1992. There's some eerie similarities to "Debbie's" case as well.

WHOA. Nice work, man!

I think it makes a lot of sense. All his convictions were in Forsyth County, which is precisely where "Debbie" was abducted. And as you said, the crimes are very similar.

IIRC, they have DNA from "Debbie's" attack. I wonder if they ever tried it on Cherry or any other POI with similar MO's around the area.

Yes, that's correct. If they haven't, I wonder if it's a law enforcement jurisdiction complication that's to blame. Debbie was found in Cumberland County after being abducted and driven from Forsyth County, which is over two hours away. I think she was found by NC state patrol/police/troopers/public safety officers. I honestly can't remember who the investigating agencies were/are.

Just by looking at a NC road atlas, I get the sense this was not at all a pre-planned thing. He drove southeast to Fayetteville before ultimately ending up in Hamilton County, FL--which he could've gotten to by at least two more direct routes from Winston-Salem. I get the feeling he was on a bender when he committed the crime, for lack of a better word. The drinking thing has always bothered me too. I got this sense that he HAD to drink his way through it or something.

the Winston-Salem police department are in charge of her case currently, but not sure if it's in an open status or not.

I made the mistake of watching this segment last night, right before time to go to bed! Talk about nighmare fuel.

With the national DNA database would it even be a problem the last 10-15 years? It is highly likely that this lowlife has been caught for other sexual & violent crimes & should be on the database. I know cold cases like this are supposed to be looked at fairly regularly so it is hard to believe they haven't found him-unless he got killed or overdosed on drugs before he got caught for anything serious.

Just for the record, NC has no statute of limitations for felonies and violent misdemeanors

There is a significant chance the culprit is dead now. He would be 60+ today. I'm guessing he lived a high-risk and not too healthy lifestyle
