Mystery Doorbell Ringer Recalls Her Desperate Bid to Escape Boyfriend

  • Published on Sep 17, 2018
  • The woman at the center of the doorbell mystery has revealed to Inside Edition what happened the night that made her frightened image go viral. “I was asleep and awoke to what seemed like a nightmare,” the woman, who wants to be identified only as Lauren, said. Five days after the video surfaced of her running to a Texas home for help, her boyfriend Dennis Collins, whom she accused of sexual assault, shot and killed himself. Lauren said she believes the doorbell video may have saved her life.

    Seemed to me like she was trying to remember what was written down in her script. Just looked very off. I got a sense of lying. If she was standing in front of me telling me this i would tell her ass to leave and don't talk to me until she's ready to tell the truth. I'm sorry but the woman is lying.

    9 years ago I had a young woman bang on my door screaming for help. She was violently banging on the door and my sister told me not to open, because she was scared. My heart told me otherwise. I couldn't stand there and listen to this girls cries for help and do nothing. So I opened the door. Turned out it was a young girl who was around 13 years old had her apartment was on fire. She had several younger brothers and sisters who were in that apartment. I called 911 right away. Everyone got out safe, but I never forgot about how I almost ignored a child pleading for help, because of someones cowardice.

    To add to the conspiracy….did anyone notice when they flashed a portion of the bf's letter, his penmanship is absolutely perfect.?? Every letter looked exactly the same, all the letters had the same exact height and spacing. He could have been a calligraphy artist. Most perfect handwriting I've ever seen, especially for a man.

    As with the advice, never stop in the middle of the night on a road for anyone flagging you down. I'd actually speed up and get the hell out of there, note the street they were on and call the cops (just in case the person really is in trouble).

    I feel sorry for her that she didn’t help from her flagging cars down or frantically ringing door bells but this isn’t the movies-It would equally be super scary for the other person/s thinking some crazy is trying to hurt them. Get the street names and call the police to that location. So sorry.

  • Noname Needed
    Noname Needed 26 days ago +1

    Clearly she is still distraught from her experience, and inside edition is making her reconstruct the full thing. This most likely will cause more trauma, as she’s reliving and reimagining it. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

    • Yevgeniy B
      Yevgeniy B 20 days ago

      Yes, the evil Inside Edition kidnapped her and forced her to relive her traumatic experience against her will. They must have made her an offer she couldn't refuse in order to make her do things she did not want to do. I bet they didn't even take the shackles off until she complied with all of their demands.

    There should be an extra class in schools to teach you about abusive people and how to avoid them. Irl safety should be a class imho. They don't teach you how to be safe and what to pay attention to irl, they just want you to fill your brain with algorithms...
