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.

    When I saw the restraints on her wrists, I automatically knew it was a luckily escaped survivor of rape. Ik, I hate that word too because it always reminds me of my father.
    To my father: Burn in h- you sick ba-.

    Some dudes just don't respect the SAFE WORD (Mine is "Kiwi"). Glad she's safe and showing off her legs (again) in a better quality video and in color. If Andy Warhol was still alive , with the internet making everyone a instant celebrity. I think he would have double that 15 minutes of fame to 30 minutes

    So I have a story that I want to share and this is 100% it was my birthday and my mom and I were coming back from celebrating it and we saw this woman run out of a black truck and she was running towards us with a screwdriver and her pants were wet and she kept saying that these people were trying to take to someplace and so my mom let her in and we stopped at dollar general and my mom called the cops and, and the woman(her name was Tiffany) locked herself in the bathroom and when the cops came me and my mom went home and I was thinking about that the entire night and I’m still wondering how that woman is doing.

    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.
