If more from jim and karen reynolds and their harrowing story at the moments they came face-to-face with the most-wanted man in america. Here they are, their incredible story in their own words. He talked to us, trying to calm us down. And saying, very frequently, he would not kill us. He made us put our hands behind our back. And he tied our hands. Made us get up and walk into the back bedroom. Made me lay on the floor. And he bound my feet with -- the plastic. And he tied my hands off so they couldn't move. Once he got us bound, then he went out to the bathroom real quick, which is real close. And came back with a couple of wash cloths. Stuck one in each of our mouths. And he put pillowcases on our head. And he kneeled down beside me and said, don't try to get loose. Give me time. I said, sure. And then, he left. We listened for probably a minute or two to see if -- make sure he was gone. Sounded quiet. Then, we started struggling trying to get loose. He scooted towards the bedroom door that he had closed. But he couldn't get up. And couldn't reach -- I mean, we were really bound. He couldn't get the doorknob. Yeah. I was able to roll on to my knees and scoot over to the bed and actually get on to my feet. got the door open. What an incredible story. I can see why 15 minutes felt like 15 hours.
