FLORIST WAS LATE TO WORK BECAUSE SHE SAID ‘GOD HEARD THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE IN CHARLESTON AND USED THEM AS VESSELS TO GET THE JOB DONE’
Heroes Debbie Dills and Todd Frady of Frady’s Florist in Kings Mountain, North Carolina called 911 and caused the arrest of suspected mass killer in Shelby, North Carolina. Dills was driving to work early Thursday morning on Highway 74 when she thought she spotted the black car that she had seen on the news, that the suspect in the killing of nine innocent people inside a historic black church in Charleston on Wednesday night was driving.
She explained, “I saw the news coverage last night and a picture of the car. I knew it was a black car, and it had a tag on the front. I saw the picture of him with the bowl hair cut and said, ‘I’ve seen that car for some reason.’ Then I looked over and saw it’s got a South Carolina tag on it. I thought, ‘Nah that’s not his car.’ Then I got closer and saw that haircut.” Then Dills immediately called her boss Todd Frady to ask for his guidance. She said, “I had the worst feeling. Is that him or not him?”
Frady explained that he immediately took action and called officer Shane Davis of the Kings Mountain Police Department. Then Dills continued to follow his car until she was stopped behind him at a stoplight. She was nervous but took down the license plate number. She was on the phone the whole time with her boss until the police arrived. Less than twenty minutes passed after Dills’ phone call to her boss. The Shelby police pulled the suspect over and he was arrested without incident. Dills said “I had been praying for those people that I saw on TV in prayer circles on my way to work, I was in the right place at the right time that the Lord puts you.”
