My name is nick and this is a very true story my friend told me a long time ago.. I won’t say who exactly but he is a friend who at the time of writing this was studying to get his teaching degree at a local public school in our area. At the time of writing this he’s been teaching for about 15 years. Now it takes place in Cleveland Ohio. 
 
I needed to make a few extra bucks while I was getting my teaching degree to help support my wife. 
I did a couple painting jobs I am fantastic with art and I got hired to paint a mural of Jesus on one of the streets anyhow it was a Thursday afternoon and I was in the middle of painting when my wife called me and asked to pick milk up from the store on my way home I told her I would. 
I turned my head towards the couple who were arguing in the street up ahead about two hundred feet in front of me. I pretended to continue to paint as my peripheral vision was focused on the couple. The women was arguing about money and the man didn’t want to hear it. She said something about him not supporting his family or something along those lines. 
I jumped as I heard the women start to cry I looked over as the man had a gun in her face. “Get on your knees” he screamed at her. As I watched I slowly reached for my phone from my pocket to call the police but not to make it obvious. The women tried to run and I heard a gun shot. Next thing I knew the women was on the ground in pain. 
The man shot her in the back of her right leg. “See what you made me do?” The man yelled as he tossed his baseball hat at her head. “Bitch.” He said as he slowly walked up to her and hit her with the back of his gun twice. He looked around and that’s when he saw me. I froze as I realized I could t pretend to be painting and that I had witnessed this assault. Next thing that happened had me terrified. The man kept staring at me. 
He itches his head. I gulped and looked at my mural again. I heard the man cough and the women cried. The man popped open the trunk of his car and had picked the women up and threw her inside the trunk and slammed the door shut. 
He got inside the car and drove off. I called the police to report the crime. Two police cars came and one took me back to the Santa toon while the other officer checked the area out. I gave my statement and described the car. An amber alert was sent out following my information. 
A couple days later I had received a phone call from the police. “The officer told me he did in fact found the car and got the car trunk opened up and saved the women. The bad news was that help didn’t arrive in time and her leg was badly damaged so doctors would need to amputate her leg. The officer also told me it was a good thing I called when I did because this sick man had rope and gloves in his trunk and he confessed that he was planning to kill that girl. 
The man got 20-50 years in prison. Because this girl wasn’t the first girl he tried to kidnap. Also I wish the officer hadn’t told me this next part but he said “the man had asked for paper and the officer gave it to him thinking maybe he would confess to some other crime but instead he drew a picture perfect drawing of me. 
With a label under that read “Dead man”
