Woman, held hostage, crashes car on purpose


















SILVERWOOD, Idaho. - Both the suspect and victim in a hostage situation were arrested  following a series of events that started Thursday night and came to a close following a car crash Friday morning on Highway 95.

The ordeal started Thursday night when 29-year-old Deanna Lafrombois allowed her boyfriend, 27-year-old Damien Bunch, inside her house despite a protective order against the former Geiger inmate.

Idaho State Police called the encounter a "mutual get-together."

Friday morning, police say Bunch then took Lafrombois against her will and the two were traveling on Highway 95 when the couple was passed by a number of ISP Troopers.

The police presence apparently made Bunch, who apparently did not want to go back to jail, uncomfortable. He proceeded to take out a knife and cut Lafrombois on her arm.

In an attempt to draw attention to her situation and get help, Lafrombois purposefully crashed the car.

A passing ISP Trooper saw the wreckage, just south of Silverwood, and when he stopped to investigate he found Bunch holding a knife to Lafrombois' throat.

The trooper notified other officers in the area and the scene was cordoned off and the road was shut down.

Conversation between the trooper and Bunch lasted about 30 minutes before the trooper was able to talk him down.

Bunch gave himself up before a SWAT team even arrived on scene.

Lafrombois was transported to Kootenai Medical Center where she was treated for knife wounds and later arrested for possession of methamphetamine.

Bunch has been charged with kidnapping, aggravated battery, aggravated assault,  violation of a protection order and possession of methamphetamine.

Bunch may face more charges pending the investigation.
