When a UPS driver picked up a package, he noticed a note scribbled on it. He could have written it off as some kind of twisted joke. But, he didn’t. Now, a toddler and his mother have been rescued from a living nightmare, thanks to the delivery man.
James Jordan won’t be receiving any Father or Husband of the Year awards after what the 33-year-old Missouri man did to his wife and their 3-year-old son. What the two were f-o-r-c-e-d to endure was nothing short of a n-i-g-h-t-m-a-re. But, thanks to an observant UPS delivery driver, Jordan got to face the music for being a monster after his wife and son were freed from the hell he put them in.
The horrific ordeal began when Jordan locked his 3-year-old son in a room without food or water, where the child was forced to remain for 15 long hours, according to CBS. His father then turned his attention to the boy’s mother. One can only imagine what the child heard as Jordan viciously a-b-u-s-e—d the woman, holding her captive in their own home near Robertsville.
Not only was his wife prevented from leaving the house, but James Jordan also took her phone as he held her prison and beat her, according to KMOV. She was pch3d, sl@pp3d, and even forced to strip naked before being — all while her toddler son remained locked in a room, likely t-r-r-i-f-i-e-d- to hear the ab-u-s-3 occurring on the other side of the door.
The woman knew she had to escape her husband’s clutches, but she didn’t have many options. She tried to flee, but Jordan caught her, dragging her back into the house by her hair. Armed with a pistol, Jordan pointed it at his wife’s head several times, her and then himself. As her desperation to get away grew, she finally came up with a plan. For it to work, she needed one person to be observant while on the job. Luckily for her, the right UPS man was sent to her home.
When the driver arrived to pick up a package, the unnamed woman knew this might be her only chance to get a message out. So, she scrawled “contact 911” on the box. She casually answered the door, not wanting to let on that she was up to something, and handed the UPS man the box, pretending everything was fine.
Allegedly, Jordan was standing behind her with a gun, so she couldn’t say a word. All she could do was wait, hoping the man would take the time to look at the package closely and follow her instructions. And, he did. He saw her plea, and he did just as it said, contacting the police. A SWAT team responded to the call, freeing the woman and her son.
