Son says mother made cell phone call from assailant's car trunk
By Margie Wuebker
The Shelby County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate the apparent abduction of an 86-year-old Fort Loramie woman who used her cell phone to call 911 from the perpetrator's car trunk.
Victoria M. Eilerman apparently was confronted by someone who walked into her 7990 state Route 705 home early Thursday afternoon. Signs of a struggle as well as blood found at the scene lead authorities to believe the elderly woman did not go willingly and they do not suspect robbery as a possible motive. [More]
