Texas church raises money for kidnap-torture victim
WFAA-TV in Dallas reports:
WEATHERFORD — A Parker County church is rising money to support a woman who investigators say was kidnapped and tortured.
Members of the South Main Church of Christ in Weatherford have set up a fund to collect donations for the 62-year-old woman who was held for days in what authorities called a “house of horrors.”

“We felt like if that was our family, we would want someone to do that for our family,” said Pam Whitley, the church’s financial secretary.
