KOSCIUSKO CO, Ind. — Police finally found and arrested a woman who stabbed three people in a home near Warsaw on Tuesday.
The search for Vickie Wooldridge began just before 10 a.m. when one of the people she stabbed went over to their neighbor’s house to ask for help.
“Officers converged on the area within a matter of minutes, started searching the home, and it was determined that the suspect was not there, but there were three victims from the stabbing,” said Sgt. Chris Francis, with the Kosciusko Co. Sheriff’s Office. “One of which was pronounced deceased at the scene.”
Francis said multiple agencies helped in the search for Wooldridge, and the Indiana State Police even used a helicopter to help in the air search.
He said a big help actually came from social media.
“Fortunately, for us, and we’ve got a decent following on our Facebook page, we were able to get the suspect information out from the scene immediately, and last time I checked that had close to 75,000 views on it.”
Then around noon, they found her.
“One of our deputies was traveling southwest of the scene, down the road he observed a female coming out of a field,” Francis said. “He immediately identified her, and she was taken into custody without further incident.”
Francis said he did not have the name of the person who died, or what Wooldridge is being charged with.
