          Woman Describes Day She Was Kidnapped By Serial Killer Andrew Urdiales


          March 7, 2019

          Jennifer Asbenson says her life changed forever on September 27, 1992. After missing her bus to work, she accepted a ride from a strange man, fearful she would lose her job if she didn’t arrive on time.

          “I looked at his face, and he didn’t look scary,” Asbenson recalls. “I could tell he’s interested in me, but he’s done nothing to hurt me. So, I had no fear of him.”

          Asbenson says that when she left her overnight shift, this man, who she later learned was serial killer Andrew Urdiales, was waiting for her outside and offered her a ride home.
