A young woman from Charleston shot her attacker dead in self defense, but after a closer look at his car, the police believe that the man might have been a serial killer.
The woman would not give out her name to the press, but she did tell her incredible story. She was an escort and there was nothing out of the ordinary when a man answered her ad in the Backpage.com on July 18th. However, the situation took a very wrong turn, ever since the man entered the woman’s house.
He attacked her and began to strangle her, but by a huge stroke of luck, the woman managed to distract him, and as he laid down his gun to deal with her, she grabbed it and shot him. This was the only way that she could get out alive from there and luckily she did not hesitate to shoot him.
Then, she called 911 and when the police came, they were extremely surprised to find out that the man had an entire killing arsenal in the trunk of his car. The man came prepared with a machete, an axe, knifes, handcuffs, a shovel, a few bottles of bleach and other items from any serial killer’s toolkit.
The police also found a list of women’s names in the man’s car, all belonging to escorts with posted adds in Backpage.com. The man was identified as Neil Falls an the police are currently looking into his potential involvement is several cold cases that included dismembered prostitutes. While it has not been established whether Falls was actually involved in these other cases, there is a very high chance that he was.
According to woman’s testimony, the man told her that he will be going prison for many years. That was the moment when said that she knew he was going to kill her unless she manages to do something about it. And unbelievably, she did do something about it. By a huge stroke of luck, the woman lives to tell the tale, but she says that she is going through a particularly difficult time at the moment and that she does not feel safe.
It remains to be seen if the police will be able to link Falls to their cold cases, but taking into account that he came so diligently prepared, it seems that this was not his first attempt at killing.
