A 59-year-old grandmother named Jannie Ligons was instrumental in shedding light on Holtzclaw’s abuse of power.
“…He was thinking every woman he stopped had a record and he could hold something over our heads…he just stopped the wrong person,” Ligons tells Crime Watch Daily. Her report lead to an investigation where more of Holtzclaw’s victims made similar starling claims, including Sharday Hill, who shared her ordeal with the serial rapist.
“I didn’t have a choice” and “went into survival mode,” when Holtzclaw threatened her while she was handcuffed to her hospital bed. Ronald Hill, one of the jurors on the case, spoke exclusively to Crime Watch Daily saying, “the more we looked at the different victims, the more we saw the pattern, the more we saw the evidence…[It] proved to us that he was guilty of the charges we found him guilty on.”

Daniel’s last known location was the Lexington Assessment and Reception Center, where he was taken for intake processing, but has since disappeared from the online system.

None of Daniel’s victims were notified about the change of status.
