PRAYERS ANSWERED - JENEESA FOUND ALIVE
BUT INJURED - COPS SAY ESTRANGED HUBBY
CLIFTON LEWIS BEAT, STABBED AND RAPED HIS
SOLDIER WIFE - MISSING FORT BLISS PFC WAS
ABDUCTED FROM OFF-POST APARTMENT JULY 17
DRIVEN TO NEVADA WHERE EX-CON DECIDED
TO SURRENDER - GIVES UP TO EL PASO POLICE
HELD IN COUNTY JAIL ON KIDNAP CHARGE
Thank God our prayers were answered. People from all over the nation e-mailed us Monday afternoon when word was released that PFC Jeneesa Lewis was alive and safe.
The slender female soldier had suffered through a horrible ordeal, however. Her deadbeat estranged husband had beaten her (kick to the face); stuck her several times in the leg with a knife; raped her; and abducted the mother of three from her El Paso, Tex. apartment. The long, six-hour ride in Jeneesa's pick-up truck to Las Vegas must have been non-stop hell.
It was in Nevada that ex-convict Clinton Lewis decided to hop a bus with his terrorized wife and return to Texas where he gave himself up to authorities. He knew he would be caught sooner or later.
ESTRANGED HUBBY LAY IN WAIT FOR WIFE TO COME HOME
Investigators learned that Lewis, evicted from the apartment a day earlier with the help of local police, had snuck in the off-post domicile last Thursday and hidden in wait for his wife to come home from her job on Fort Bliss.
Once she got through the door, police say, the violent creep kicked his wife in the face, sliced her with a knife and violently raped the terrified 29 year-old. Then he threw her in a 2001 Dodge Dakota pick-up and took-off for Nevada.
It was up there that Lewis realized he wasn't going to be free for long, so he decided to give himself up. As of Monday night, the loser was locked up in the county jail on charges of kidnapping.
PFC Lewis will tell her story of terror when she's had a chance to recover from the awful ordeal. She is indeed blessed. There are many cases of battered wives that were in similar situations to her and they ended up dead.
