    The fear is still vivid, tears come easily. "I am very thankful to be alive because I didn't think that I would," says 48-year-old Beverly Woody. Less than 24 hours ago, she stared death in the face. "I'd said that he was cruel and awful for no reason to an innocent person," she explains. It started with a trip to the Conway Wal-Mart on Highway 65 to buy groceries. It's something Woody does twice a week. "I told them to take my car, take my money, just please don't take me." But they did. She says two teenage black males forced into her car holding a gun at her head, demanding she keep quiet. "All I could think was I am going to be splattered all over this back seat," she describes. "He told me a couple of times my mom's just been killed and I don't have a reason to live. I don't care what happens to me." Woody says the suspects then drove her about 12 miles away to Mayflower on Highway 89 and pushed her out of the car. "I was just walking. I didn't even run because I was just waiting on the bullet to hit my back," she says. But there was no gunfire. Woody wasn't injured, just hysterical and in shock. A good samaritan drove by and called for help. "I was saying my prayers when I was back there and he answered them and when I got out I thanked him," she says. Her husband, David, is her shoulder to lean on. But the fear she says of that horrific day will never subside. She'll never shop alone again. "If someone killed his mother, I am very sorry about that, but it wasn't me. Go after the person that killed your mother. I didn't do anything," Woody says. The getaway car is a black 2008 Toyota 4 door XSL. The license plate is Arkansas 406 MNX. One suspect was wearing baggy blue jeans with a gray sweatshirt and hoody. The gunman was described as wearing blue jeans, a light-colored baseball type shirt with dark sleeves and a dark baseball cap. He had a gold coin-like earring about the size of a dime in his left ear and a bronze leaf-like earring that dangled down in his right ear and was armed with a black weapon that appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol. Assorted items inside the vehicle as well as a debit card and the victim’s cell phone were also taken. At the point of release, a small white car pulled up and the driver spoke to the suspects. (See second picture) The men in that car are persons of interest. If you have any information you're asked to call Conway Police at (501)450-6120.
