: Kidnapped and raped for 18 years. Finally freed.

07-13-11, 04:09 AM

Did anyone watch this? The Diane Sawyer interview wasn't too graphic but at times it was hard to watch. [Its on the 'bay' with the 'pirates' if you want to download it.]

Short version:
11 year old girl is abducted by a pedophile and his wife in the daylight in 1991.
She is locked up and raped for 18 years, having two children with the rapist.
Despite visits from parole officers, cops, and 911 calls from neighbors, law enforcement fails to save her.
It took two campus police officers to ask the guy basic questions and figure out what was up.
She received $20 million from the state of California.

She seems reasonably well-adjusted and peaceful but you can tell there's a void.

You guys are just hearing about this? Not to be "that guy", but I was following this with great interest when they first found her like six months ago.

I don't even watch a ton of news, so I'm surprised to see this just coming up...

They found her two years ago dawg

So why is this news now then? because Dianne Sawyer just interviewed her?

They must have been sitting on this waiting for the Casey Anthony trial to end ....

i wikipedia'd this story, and lately wikipedia has become like youtube to me. i read this story, then read up on the mercury monarch, then stockholm syndrome,then the norrmalmstorg bank robbery, then patty hearst, then other children in captivity then found out about elizabeth fritzl,

you think this story was bad (and it was) try reading about elisabeth fritzl.
