Who could forget the truly bizarre case of kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart? Unless you’ve been living under a rock for past five years, you are familiar with the tragic and strange case of the Salt Lake City kidnapping case of 14 year-old Elizabeth Smart. She was kidnapped by a handyman, Brian Mitchell, from her bedroom in Utah back in 2002 and was repeatedly raped among other terrible things that you can imagine as she was held captive on the woods.
To the world’s shock, authorities ended up rescuing her in Sandy, UT thanks to the help of two couples who recognized her captor from a newscast. She is now back at home, safe and sound and has now teamed up with them to produce “I Am Elizabeth Smart” which is now airing on Lifetime.
Take a look:
Here are some thoughts from Twitter:
Elizabeth – I'm fairly sure I saw you (and them) passing through SD.
I'm heartbroken that I didn't know to notify authorities at that time.
(Being much younger, it didn't strike me as more than the 'local oddness' of that area of town.)
I'm SO sorry for not calling sheriff.

I am so sorry that the arrogance,ignorance and insensitivity of people ever made you feel you had to explain/defend yourself for having been an incredibly smart/wise young lady who,as a victim,kept herself alive and ultimately rescued.

Lord, I had to watch this in parts. Breaks my heart for what you went through. I’ve always wanted to know what happened as I followed the story as a teenager.
