Asbenson says, however, that her nightmare continued there.
“They didn’t believe that I was kidnapped. They didn’t believe me when I said he was a murderer,” Asbenson tells Dr. Phil on Thursday’s episode.
“They said, ‘We have reason to believe you got into a fight with your boyfriend, and he roughed you up a little bit. You guys got a little too rough, and he bit you on the neck.’ And I just went, ‘I don’t even have a boyfriend.’”WATCH: Why Woman Says She Believes She Survived Being Abducted By A Serial Killer
