Serial Killer Survivor Tina Marie Risico Breaks Silence 40 Years Later

That’s
why,
she
said,
when
Wilder
asked
her
to
approach
a
girl
at
a
mall
in
Gary,
Ind.,
and convince
her
to
come
with
them, Risico
felt
coerced
to
do
what
she
was
told. “All
that was
going
through
my
head
was, ‘How
can
I
save
her?
How
am
I
going
to
tell
her
to
get
away
from
here?'”
she
said. “But
I
just
did
what
he
said.”


Dawnette
Sue
Wilt
,
also
16,
said
she
was
enticed
by a
fashion
show
modeling
offer
and
joined
the
pair
in
the
car
as
they
set
off. 

“After
he
was
done
raping
her,
raping
me,
he
allowed—said, ‘You
need
to
go
take
a
bath,'”
Risico
recalled. “And
while
I
was
in
the
bath,
I
could
see
the
lights
dimming
on
and
off,
so
he
was
electrocuting
her.
And
she
was
screaming.
I
could
hear
her
from
the
bathroom.”

To
this
day, Risico
said
her
two
regrets
are
getting
in
the
car
with
Wilder
and
taking
Wilt
with
them. “It
was
a
choice,”
she
said. “It
wasn’t
mine,
but
it
was
a
choice,
and
I
had
to
live
with
that.”
