Kristin Bauer’s father, Gregory Bauer told the Redlands Daily Facts that his daughter phoned him during the confrontation. 

‘It was like background noise. She kept telling him, “You gotta let me go. You gotta let me go,” and he said, “I’m not afraid to die”.’

The father told the Riverside Press-Enterprise from there the phone call going dead moments later.

The father told that his daughter had dated the assailant for several months but had recently broken up with him.

The father said her daughter’s ex-boyfriend was usually calm and that something must have ‘triggered’ him.
