Woman Held Hostage for 2 Months Inside Her Own Home

Colorado – A Denver woman was allegedly tortured and held hostage for two months inside her own home. The woman, who has not been publicly identified, told police that her boyfriend, Eric Barney, held her hostage for two months, threatening to kill her and her family if she tried to break free. Police reportedly first met the victim in July when she was treated at a local hospital for injuries sustained during an alleged beating by her boyfriend. The victim told police that Barney had tried to kill her by strangling her and smothering her with a pillow. Police then issued an arrest warrant for Barney but were unable to find him. Four days later, he allegedly broke into the victim’s home while she was sleeping, holding her captive for two months.  more
