A woman found behind a padlocked door inside a New Jersey apartment said man accused of holding her there for years is "a good man" who never abused her and that she simply doesn't like to go outside.

Nancy Rodriguez Duran said the kidnapping case against 42-year-old Michael Mendez is a lie and that she asked him to padlock the bedroom door with her inside on the day police found her.
