Kara Robinson Chamberlain

In 2002, at 15 years old, Kara was kidnapped by and escaped from what she would later find out to be a serial killer. Kara’s will to survive led to her escaping her captor and gathering information to identify her captor as the man responsible for at least three murders years earlier in Virginia.
