It wouldn't be just a statement, I actually sent that person a letter trying to get him to go to work out of town with me. I sent him the letter, so I could trick him and get inside his head, so he would admit things to me.
I told him in the letter that he was the only person that understood me and that I was afraid of going to jail for rape. I sent him this letter a good 6-9 months after I found out that he was possibly the rapist.
I wasn't 100% he was the rapist at that time, but I was 90% sure. I tricked him into admitting the rape while I had him on speaker phone with his own mother. However; he doesn't know that the woman never reported the rape, even though I made him think she did.
Her husband was looking to kill or torture or cut off body parts of the rapist. If they would of called the police I would of went to the police and told them, but I was worried if I told the husband who the rapist was, I'd become an accessory to murder or whatever he had in mind.
