Abduction Victim 911 Call Led To Shawn Grate Arrest
Serial killer Shawn Grate was arrested after a victim made a 911 call. The victim Jane Doe called the police from the Ashland home where she was a hostage.
The 38-year-old woman first met at the Ashland Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center in 2016. The two became good friends and started meeting frequently.
On September 11, Shawn invited her to a home in Ashland. The survivor saw his true nature soon after entering the house.
Shawn held Doe captive for three days, during which she was physically and sexually assaulted multiple times. She finally got an opportunity to make a 911 call when he was asleep. The police arrived at the right time to arrest Shawn as he had likely discovered the 911 call made by the victim.
Jane was lucky to have survived a predator like Shawn Grate. However, not all of his victims succeeded in surviving the serial killer. The police found the dead bodies of two women in the house where he had been living as an intruder.
