When her husband returned from work, he was brutally shot to death and his body hidden in the Master Bedroom. Debra, upon later entering their home, was bludgeoned, raped and abducted by her husband’s murderer. Over a period of 101 hours, Debra was repeatedly raped, and help captive until her escape on the fifth day. Struggling to heal from her horrendous ordeal and the devastating loss of her husband, Debra also had to endure an agonizing court trial, the raw grief of her children, and her own crippling fear.
