Teka's story: second of two parts
On the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 2, Teka Adams -- homeless and nine months pregnant -- climbed into the car of a woman named Veronica Deramous. Teka believed Deramous was taking her to a storage facility in Maryland to pick up baby items donated by a company that helps needy mothers.
Instead, Deramous allegedly detoured to her Suitland apartment, ushered Teka inside, attacked her with a box cutter, enlisted her 17-year-old son to help tie up Teka with duct tape and held Teka captive on a futon mattress for four days.
Teka would eventually realize that it was her unborn baby the woman was allegedly after.
Today the Post published Part 2 of a two-part series that is based on interviews with Teka, as well as court documents and interviews with detectives, emergency responders, relatives and others involved in the case.
Part 1 of the series is also available online.
