In an unique sneak peek at Snapped Infamous: The Cleveland Killer, premiering Saturday, July 24, survivor Gladys Wade-Thomas opens up about her near-fatal encounter with serial killer Anthony Sowell. Whereas Sowell murdered eleven girls and lived with their decomposing our bodies inside his home earlier than being arrested in 2009, six girls together with Wade-Thomas survived his horrors.
The previous Marine approached Wade-Thomas as she was leaving a comfort retailer across the holidays. “He stated, ‘Merry Christmas,'” Wade-Thomas recalled of the chilling encounter. “Impulsively, I used to be hit from behind.”
Sowell then dragged Wade-Thomas to his Mount Nice dwelling. It was a daring transfer that highlighted simply how cocky his crime spree grew to become, famous forensic neuropsychologist Dr. Diana Goldstein, saying, “He has unimaginable confidence at this level that he will get away with all the pieces he does.”
And that was practically the case for Wade-Thomas, who awoke to seek out herself on the third flooring of Sowell’s home.
