As many people know, kids don’t always follow the advice that their parents offer to them. Yet when Jordan Dinsmore found herself in grave danger one night, she took her cues from something that her mom had once told her. That may have been because her mother had been through a similar ordeal when she was roughly the same age as Dinsmore. And just as with her mom, the South Carolina student was determined to escape a cruel fate.
Dinsmore encountered her own nightmare scenario in late July 2017. It came after she had finished her shift at Buffalo Wild Wings at around 12:30 a.m. Having jumped into her car, she then drove to the student apartment building where she lived. What she hadn’t seen before she headed home, however, was the warning that another complex had given to its residents.
