          Why Woman Says She Believes She Survived Being Abducted By A Serial Killer


          March 7, 2019

          Jennifer Asbenson was kidnapped by serial killer Andrew Urdiales 26 years ago. She says after accepting a ride from him because he “didn’t look scary,” Urdiales tied her hands together, cut off some of her clothes, assaulted her, threw her in the trunk of his car and drove her to the desert. Asbenson says she was able to free her hands, open the trunk and run for her life – while Urdiales was chasing her with a machete.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a story Dr. Phil won’t believe?

          “Why did you survive?” Dr. Phil asks Asbenson on Thursday’s episode.

          “I knew I was going to die, and so I just started telling him to kill me. And that’s when everything changed,” she says. “Every time I said ‘Kill me,’ I could see him losing power.”
