Hitchhikers Vanished Along Rural Highway. 18 Months Later Police Finally Reveal the Truth 

In fear

The girl from Houston initially, positively identified Rhoades and his truck but retracted her statement when she came face-to-face with the assailant. Because of this, Rhoades was able to walk away a free man. Later, investigations revealed that the woman withdrew her statement against Rhoades out of fear. She thought that there were not enough police officers to protect her from Rhoades- who had brutally violated and tortured her for weeks- if she identified him.
