“I just felt like I was in an unfamiliar place, and then the next thing I know, there’s this guy coming out of nowhere and he just kills everybody,” said the 19-year-old student, who asked that her name not be used because she was under a court order not to speak to the media.
“He’s the only person who can kill all of us.”
The young woman was walking to the nearby farmhouse to get her hair cut when a man who identified himself as her attacker, later identified as a former college football player named “Schmitt” walked up to her and began yelling at her, according to the woman and the university.
“He said, ‘Don’t you know that I am Schmitt?
I’m Schmitt,’ ” the young woman said.
“I said, What?”
The man said, “I’ve never been this angry with a person before.”
“I said no, I’m not going to say no,” the young girl told The Post.
“Schmidt got on top of me and started choking me.”
While she was being choked, Schmitt grabbed the victim’s throat and dragged her face into the dirt.
At one point, the young victim said Schmitt said, he put a pair of scissors on my head and said, you have to do this or I’ll cut you.
“Schmitt grabbed her by the throat and forced her to turn over, the woman said, telling her to put her hands up in the air.
Schmidt pushed the victim toward the barn and then into a wood chipper.
He then took her to a bedroom and raped her, the girl said.
When the police arrived, they found the victim dead.
A second victim was also sexually assaulted and left at a nearby house.
In all, the three young women and one man were killed.
They were found on the property of a local family, who were also found unharmed.
Investigators believe the killings may have been a result of a “lone wolf” attack.
They have not determined the motive.
The first victim, a high school senior, had just graduated from high school in January of 2016, according.
Her name was identified by a police report and was taken into custody in early April.
An arrest warrant has not been filed.
Another victim, an assistant football coach at the college, was killed shortly after the first incident.
Her identity was also released.
Two more men, ages 18 and 21, were arrested on Thursday, April 29.
One was a former student of Schmitt’s and the other was a convicted sex offender, authorities said.
Both men have been charged with first-degree murder and kidnapping.
The other man was also arrested on Friday.
While the cases have sparked widespread outrage, some are calling for tougher penalties for perpetrators of such crimes.
During the height of the gang rape epidemic in the U.S., in August, a jury in Baltimore found former University of Maryland football player Justin “Puff Daddy” Smith guilty of first- and second-degree rape.
The verdict came as the school faced a backlash after it became known that Smith had been a frequent visitor to the campus of the historically black school.
Smith was sentenced to life in prison in October, with a mandatory minimum of 25 years.
Since then, dozens of college athletes have been convicted of gang rape or other sex crimes in the United States, with most of the cases involving former high school athletes, according, to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.
This week, the FBI released a report that said that, since 2014, 1,066 sexual assault allegations were reported to law enforcement in the US.
Nearly a third of the incidents involved college athletes.
It is not clear how many of the victims were the students of a single individual, according the FBI.
Some college football coaches have been arrested for gang rape in the past.
In February, former Texas A&M football coach Johnny Manziel was sentenced by a jury to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to raping a student in 2010.
After a long and intense trial, the jury deliberated for almost nine hours before finding Manziel guilty.
As for the other victims, the two who survived the attack were treated for injuries to their genitals, the Associated Press reported.
They were released from a Maryland hospital Monday after surgery to remove the large scar that had formed.
The medical team at the University of Baltimore is continuing to care for them, and a memorial service will be held for the victims in April.
