EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio– An East Cleveland woman says she is one of the lucky ones. She spoke to FOX 8 exclusively Tuesday night, stating that she was pursued by alleged killer Michael Madison just two months ago.
The 19-year-old did not want her name or identity revealed. She says she visited Madison at his East Cleveland home, after giving in to his repeated requests to go out with him.
She says while she never suspected any criminality, she felt a weird vibe, and decided not to pursue a relationship.
The woman spoke to FOX 8 just a few blocks away from where police found three female bodies in the area of Hayden and Shaw.
She says, at first, she exchanged phone numbers and spoke a few times. But she says Madison quickly became aggressive, constantly calling and texting about her whereabouts.
“At first, he had got my number and he was talking to me and sometimes he had followed me like, you ain’t texting; you acting like that, and I’m like, well, I do have a boyfriend and he was like, so what; what does that have to do with me?” said the woman.
FOX 8’s Jennifer Jordan asked, “How did you feel when you were inside his house?” The woman answered, “I didn’t like it. It was kinda weird.”
She goes on to say, “I could have been one of the girls.”
