David Carpenter, who is also known as Trailside Killer, once terrorized Northern Californians, killing innocent people during the 1970s and 19980s. She said,

A few years before I was born, my mom was attacked by a man that she worked with. He picked her up at the bus stop and then, all of a sudden, he started to drive her down this really deserted road, He tried to rape her. He tried to kill her. Luckily, a military policeman had seen them drive down this deserted road and he knew no one was supposed to be down there and he followed them down. My mom was saved that day by that military policeman.

Moreover, Lisa's mother Lois, who is currently 90 years of age, also opened up about the horror moment.

That was a really bad thing. I knew him. I thought that was it, He’s straddling me. He had a hammer in one hand and a knife in the other, He’s straddling me. He had a hammer in one hand and a knife in the other.

Lois also revealed that it was only after Carpenter tried to harm her that he was imprisoned.

I was the first one he went to jail for, They gave him seven and a half years.
