The girl’s identity has not been released, nor have the identities of the deceased.

A 12-year-old girl escaped a kidnapping by chewing through her wrist restraints, according to Alabama authorities. WRBL reports that she had been tied to a bed in a mobile home and fed alcohol while held hostage for over a week. Meanwhile, two bodies were decomposing nearby.

Girl Was Tied With Wrist Restraints, Drugged With Alcohol

The girl escaped and spotted her walking along County Road 34 in Tallapoosa County, leading them to call the authorities. Deputies took the girl into custody and noted that they saw marks on her wrists. The marks appeared to look as though she had been tied.

The resident of the mobile home is a 37-year-old man named Jose Reyes. He was arrested on Monday without bond and charged with kidnapping in the 1st degree. Because of the two decomposing bodies found in his home, prosecutors anticipate charging him with capital murder as well as other charges.

As of two days ago, the mobile home was still being investigated, indicated by yellow tape. The FBI and Homeland Security are involved in the investigation along with Tallapoosa County Sheriff’s investigators.

It’s unclear exactly where the bodies were found. However, structural components of the underside of the mobile home were removed and investigators were searching the ground.

The girl had been fed alcohol to keep her in an altered mind state. When she chewed through the restraints, she damaged her braces. Authorities are hailing her as a hero for chewing her way out.

The girl’s identity has not been released, nor have the identities of the deceased. The girl was not reported missing although authorities believe she was kidnapped around July 24.

It’s estimated that about 2,300 children go missing every day in the United States. Most abductions are by family members. About 86% of non-custodial kidnappings are at the hands of a male, and only 4% of those children are ever recovered.
