Hunter Chase Nance Wiki – Bio
Hunter Chase Nance, 24, was charged with numerous charges, including attempted murder, for the deranged scheme he allegedly hatched after meeting the woman at a gas station last Wednesday, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said. After Nance and her victim exchanged phone numbers at the gas station, he picked her up later that day and drove her back to her home in the small town of China Grove. He then closed the door and allegedly lunged at her with a knife, deputies said, according to WBTV.
The bloodied woman found a way to escape from her and was helped by first responders after neighbors saw her walking down the street, according to the outlet. Once Nance was taken into custody, he allegedly admitted to police that he picked her at random and that he wanted to kill her “for the thrill,” before mutilating her body and leaving it outside for cars to see, WBTV reported.
Hunter Chase Nance is 24 years old.
Kidnapping accused now charged with attempted murder
Deputies reportedly said that he also expressed an interest in killing other people and cannibalism. Nance was facing charges of false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon and first-degree kidnapping, the television station reported, but was later charged with attempted murder Monday, authorities said.
The Rowan Sheriff’s Office said his bail is now set at $1.2 million and his first court appearance is Tuesday. The neighbor next door to him was shocked by the lurid accusations. “I mean, obviously, it could have ended worse. Thank God the girl was strong enough to fight him off and escape,” resident Paula Fullbright told WBTV. “Honestly, I’ve had thoughts in my mind, ‘what if he tried to break into my house and take one of my daughters?’ It’s terrible that I even have that thought, I wish I hadn’t, but that’s the reality of it in this moment”.
