Police body camera footage has been released of when a 23-year-old kidnap victim was rescued.
Police body camera footage has since revealed what happened when Jones was first located and Mozingo taken in by authorities.
Warning: video shows graphic imagery.
The police body camera footage shows Jones with two black eyes and a swollen face, heartbreakingly asking police if they have water and if she can go to the hospital.
It also shows police questioning Mozingo asking why Jones is 'so f*cked up' - Mozingo telling authorities: "That's how she came."
As he's led away from the scene, Mozingo says: "I love you Chloe."
It's believed Jones was held hostage in the garage for four days before authorities were alerted there was a man and 'girl' located in the shed.
Mozingo was arrested by police and charged with parole violation, escape, felonious assault, unlawful restraint, abduction and kidnapping - a charge he's been convicted of three times in the last decade - such as when he kidnapped another woman named, Mackenzie Mastin.
In an interview with News Nation after finding out about Chloe Jones' abduction, Mastin recalled what her three days being held hostage by Mozingo were like in 2017.
Mastin said: "During those three days, he had us locked up in a room with a knife. He kept saying that we weren't going to be able to go back to my parents. I kept begging him to just let me go home to my mom and dad.
"He would continuously put a knife to our throat saying he was going to kill us and that I was never going to get to go home and that I didn't deserve to go home to my family."
Mastin says she was 'continuously beat[en]' by him and she ended up with 'blacked out' and 'swollen eyes'.
"He was throwing and smashing beer bottles at the wall by our heads," she continues. "And had us locked in that room for three days. It was probably the most scariest experience of my life."
Responding to Jones speaking out last month, Mastin said she can't 'believe that [Mozingo] was [...] able to do it again [kidnapping] after doing it so many times'.
She resolved: "My heart and my prayers go out to Chloe and her family for what she had to go through.
"And I just want her to know that she’s not alone in this and that she’s not the only one that he did this to."
