Kenya Pierce found alive, Derrick Hudson found dead

(Cleveland) - A Cleveland woman believed to have been kidnapped by an ex-boyfriend on Saturday morning has been found alive on the west side, and her alleged kidnapper has shot himself dead.

Police were tipped off on where to find Kenya Pierce and Derrick Hudson this morning, and went to the 4200 block of Maple Dale Avenue. That's where they found Pierce and a Hudson sitting in his car.

Chief Michael McGrath says Hudson was in the passenger's seat, and shot himself once in the head when police approached.

Pierce was removed from the car and was in good condition when police got her out. McGrath says she may have suffered a broken arm in the kidnapping.

McGrath says the two had continued to drive since the kidnapping took place. They went as far as Detroit before coming back.



On Saturday, Cleveland police were called out to the area of East 123rd and Chesterfield for a report of two people being shot and a woman being kidnapped. The people who were shot were landlords of the building. Police say the shooting victims had attempted to prevent Pierce from being kidnapped, and were shot by Hudson.

McGrath says it appears Hudson "was obessed" with Pierce.

Through the weekend, police looked all over Cleveland for Hudson and Pierce.



Police say Hudson had been recently released from prison after serving ten years for manslaughter.
