    A horrible crime occurred in Roscoe, Illinois. The crime happened last Wednesday, March 13, 2019. An unnamed women, 34 years old, reported that Matthey Harkey, 43 years old, was hiding in her home when she returned from dropping her children off at school. He attacked, raped, and abducted her, then handcuffed and strapped her to an exercise bench in his basement. When Harkey left the home, she escaped, naked, bleeding, and dragging the exercise bench behind her. The full story is in this article:

    Hopefully he will be in prison a lot longer than he has been for any of his other offenses.

    It's sad we have thoughts like this, but this criminal does not appear to be interested in rehabilitation. Unless he gets LWOP, he will continue attacking females.

    I hope his charges get him life in prison but that's probably wishful thinking. He will do it again and he probably would've murdered her if she hadn't escaped.
