Donna Coker posted on social media, “I can not even begin to imagine what she is going through. Pure hell I’m sure.. this shoulda never happened… from information that’s been given this could have been prevented.”
According to Fox Carolina Vaught’s criminal record shows a prior arrest for kidnapping in 2009 in which he was sentenced to time served and probation.
