"We went and got her in that house. We kicked doors down. It was like a movie unfolding," said Arceneaux's brother, Ryan Arceneaux. "If we wouldn't have done what we did, she would have been dead." Ryan Arceneaux; a second brother, Kaylyn Alfred; and other family members stormed the house, about 10 miles west of Lafayette, La., and 65 miles west of Baton Rouge, La., grabbed Bethany Arceneaux and left the man accused of kidnapping her, Scott Thomas, 29, of Leonville, La. Thomas is the father of her son. "I'm so happy. God is good," said Bethany and Ryan Arceneaux's aunt, Monica Arceneaux-Henry, after the rescue. Thomas died later Friday, said Cmdr. Kip Judice of the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office after police deployed a SWAT team to the scene. Thomas succumbed to injuries he sustained during the confrontation with Bethany Arceneaux's family members. Judice said family members injured Thomas as they were defending Bethany Arceneaux.
"He keeps threatening to kill us," Arceneaux wrote in her June 15 complaint to police that resulted in the protective order. "He put a knife to my neck countless times," choked her, dragged her by the hair and held herself and her son hostage.
Scott Thomas, the alleged kidnapper, is deceased. Deputies say a family member killed Thomas after he was confronted with Bethany Arceneaux. Deputies say the family member was trying to protect Arceneaux from being harmed further and acted to defend her. It is under investigation how he died. Deputies say family members did shoot Thomas, who was armed with a knife, when he began hurting her with his weapon. The coroner just arrived on the scene.
Im all for what they did, but make a video? that's stupid, it is incriminating against themselves, or was it narcissism. Either way, glad she made it home to her baby.
