Mystery Montgomery Co. woman captured in chilling doorbell camera reveals escape details on 'Inside Edition'

The Montgomery County woman who made national headlines after she was seen on video ringing a doorbell to ask for help has revealed her identity.

The mystery woman was identified as Lauren, during an interview with "Inside Edition."

Lauren, who did not want to share her last name, spoke previously to ABC13, but we kept her name and face out of the report at her request.

During her interview, Lauren revealed that night her boyfriend Dennis Collins had tied her up and raped her. She also explained how she ended up barefoot, wearing only a shirt and no pants, running to a neighbor's house for help to escape a desperate situation.

"My throat hurt really bad from screaming, so he let me go into the kitchen to get a drink. And while I was getting a drink, he turned around and walked to go to the bedroom, and that's when I ran out the front door," Lauren said.

She told "Inside Edition" she ran into her neighborhood and began ringing doorbells and tried to flag down cars, but no one stopped.

When neighbors didn't answer, investigators say she returned to the home where she and Collins had been living.

She managed to get to a friend's house where she then drove off to her family's home in Dallas.

Days later, Collins was found dead from suicide inside their home.

While on "Inside Edition" Lauren read a part of Collins' suicide note:

"I never would have killed you, as you thought. I'm sorry for what I've done, and I wish I could turn back time. Love, Dennis. Yes. Love. I'm sorry."

While she feels guilty about Collins' suicide, she says she feels the viral video actually saved her life.
