The woman was described as a 32-year-old woman from the Dallas area and is safe with her family.

Spencer said Collins left a suicide note, which helped officials identify the woman.

“In his notes, the details that were there, show he is clearly very angry about what happened. He laid the blame for what he had done. He admitted that he had done what he did to her-as you can see in the video, and I think that has played a role in him committing suicide,” Spencer said.

Spencer said the woman is “angry” and “ashamed” about the incident.

“She’s very upset about. She is angry, she is shy, she is in shock,” Spencer said.

Collins has a history of sexual violence, FOX 26 Houston reported. He was arrested in 2000 for “attempting to commit sexual abuse.”
