75-Year-Old Woman Beaten, Bound, Gagged

California authorities say a 75-year-old woman is expected to make a full recovery after a two-day kidnapping ordeal during which she was beaten, bound and gagged in El Cajon, California.

Authorities say three people are under arrest after police pulled the woman's car over for speeding early Wednesday and found her in the back of the station wagon.

Police say the victim had also been without food or water for two days.

A sheriff's lieutenant says a shovel also was found in the car and "she may have been on the way to her death."

The woman told deputies one of her kidnappers was a salesman from a carpet company who sold her a $2,000 vacuum. She said he came back later, choked her until she passed out, tied her hands and feet and gagged her mouth with duct tape.

    I pray for once our justice system works and puts these monsters away for life. They should have attempted murder charges (shovel) I wonder what their plan was? Parents watch this; love, care for and nurture our children so they have a chance of not turning out like these monsters. Thank God she survived a true blessing!!!!

    Someone should tell this woman's family to sue the company, who hired that animal to sell vacumn cleaners. That company should be held liable for that scum bag employee, they hired him.

    These punks should be given the chair...smiling and laughing on TV. I tell you these kids today have no respect. Wish I could get them alone for an hour or so...most likely with our court system they will get off with nothing

    For those of you who were wondering why Ms. Louise and her son reacted the way they did to the agents (who were in plain clothes and didn't identigy themselves) who were nosing on her property, here ya go. I'm so thankful that this woman was saved and will recover from her physical injuries. I just pray that the emotional ones will heal, too.
