In 2002, 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart was abducted from her home near Salt Lake City, Utah. Elizabeth's younger sister was in the same room when a man came and took Elizabeth. Her captors kept her up in the mountains for much of the time she was held. All the while, her case received a lot of media attention and many people were searching for her.
Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the infamous abduction of Elizabeth Smart. She experienced unspeakable acts during the nine-month period of time that she was held. During that time, a number of police officers encountered Elizabeth and her captors Brian Mitchell and Wanda Barzee. But, Elizabeth was kept covered and was so fearful of her captors that she was unable to ask for help. After she was finally rescued, Elizabeth's inner strength was on full display as she stared down her abductor in court and detailed what he had done to her.
