It happened to me, im not saying it is the same thing but look into it, mine was a actuator and pin in the steering column that was broken and wouldn't pull back when you turned the ignition off.

Sounds like you have a bad ignition switch. It stays in the run position instead of going to the off position and stopping the flowing of current to the ignition.
