Thomas Davidson was arrested Sunday. Police say he killed a Gibson County woman. Another woman from Posey County said she feared for her life.
Kierstin Young said she is thankful to be alive today. She said she had never met Davidson before he stopped by her apartment early Saturday morning with mutual friends.
She said Davidson volunteered to take her to get cigarettes. Young said he seemed like a decent guy at first, but his mood quickly when he was unable to help him find drugs. She said he became angry and hit her in the face with a gun twice and then made a startling confession.
"And then he told me that he had killed another woman earlier that night," Young said. "And he said that he pretty much had no mercy on me and that he would pretty much do the same to me. And at that point I realized that he would do the same to me."
Young said he then shot the gun and the bullet grazed her nose. She said she realized that she had to think quick.
"And I seen the gas stations... Those were the last open stores I coulda went to... So I had no choice but to throw myself out of a moving vehicle... Because I honestly thought he was gonna kill me as well," Young said.
She said she called her family when she got to the gas station because Davidson threatened to return to her apartment and harm her daughter and friends.
Young said she didn't realize until later that the car they were in was that of Sandy Burkhardt. She said she wants to express her sorry for the Burkhardt family.
