Canton Man Kidnapped Ex-Wife So He Could Pretend To Save Her

It's the final day of the month and whew we got a big ol DONKEY for you today. Donkey Of The Day for Tuesday, August 31st goes out to 36 year old to Rodney William Metzer who was just sentenced to 25 years in prison after kidnapping his ex-wife so he could pretend to save her.

Now after getting divorced from his wife, Rodney lost it, faking a cancer diagnosis first, then after that plan did not work he decided he was going to kidnap and then save his ex-wife to earn her love back. Like something out of a movie he wanted to swoop in and save her, breaking into his ex-wife's house with a gun and mask, zip tying her and dragged her to the deck.

Then changing his clothes and came back to try and save her, however the cops found the handgun he used in his apartment, the zip ties he used, as well as search history including topics as (how to change the sound of your voice, how long before you starve to death).

Rodney the master manipulator that he is has been sentenced to 70 years with the first 25 years to be served in confinement and the rest on probation.
