STOLEN IN THE DARK
HOW THREE POLICE AGENCIES SHOWED KIM THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY
Recognized for her honest understanding of the challenges first responders face when dealing with crime victims, Kim shares how her life was changed by the actions of police after the brutal kidnapping and rape nearly took her life. Meant to instruct, inform and inspire, Kim’s recount of more than 15 hours in captivity by a gang of four thugs leaves room for laughter and a few tears but most importantly, a new way of thinking about those hurt by crime.
Kim has made it her mission to help others move through pain and suffering to a place of peace and wholeness. This video details the story of how Kim survived the brutal kidnapping and sexual assault of four complete strangers over a span of 15 hours.
Aside from the physical abuse, she experienced extreme emotional trauma that didn’t stop after she escaped her captors. It has now been over 30 years since her attack and she is still dealing with legalities of the event, proving how the abduction was only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the hurt experienced from tragedies like these.
The inspiration she has become allows her to deeply empathize, connect, and support the victims in light of the unique experiences they share.
