HANOVER, VA (WWBT) – Where is Jerry Otis Robinson? It's a question Hanover police have tried to answer for more than a decade. Otis is wanted for shooting his fiancée six times. Incredibly, she survived.

It seems Jerry Robinson simply vanished after being featured on local and national shows. He's still on the run. The woman he's accused of shooting says eleven years is too long, and it's now time bring Otis to justice.

"The first shot was in my left ear," said Stacie Breaker. "The second shot was on the side of my neck."

Stacie Breaker would be shot four more times; several of the bullets still lodged in her body.

"I still have panic attacks," she said.

It's been eleven years since Stacie nearly loss her life. The man charged in the crime is 37-year-old Jerry Robinson; a man who has managed to evade capture all these years.

"I'm afraid for somebody else that if he loses his temper and doesn't get what he wants, he may hurt somebody else," said Stacie.

Stacie and Jerry were once engaged. When Stacie tried to break off the relationship in their Mechanicsville apartment back in 1999 -- she says that's when Jerry lost it and pulled out a gun.

"I couldn't believe he was shooting me," she said.

Jerry took off and hasn't been seen since. But Stacie knows that -- someone out there can help bring Robinson to justice.

"It's very possible Mr. Robinson may be living much the way an illegal immigrant would live; where he acquires an identification of another individual and absolutely assumes that identity and goes about living a fairly normal life" said Captain Mike Trice with the Hanover County Sheriff's Office.

Robinson has family in the Louisa area and investigators say it's likely he might visit periodically. Captain Trite says Robinson won't be able to run forever.

"And I do believe wholeheartedly that he needs to be held accountable for what he did this day. And one day I believe we will be able to link this trail together," said Trice.

Meanwhile Stacie continues to wait and wonder when an arrest will be made. She has questions for Robinson.

"Why did you do this? Why did you think you could do this? He needs to go to jail," said Stacie.

Now police say they believe Robinson is alive and well living somewhere in the United States. If you have any information on the whereabouts of Robinson you're urged to contact police.
