NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Twenty years ago this week the kidnapping, imprisonment, and torture of a Long Island child captured the attention of a nation.
On Monday night, Katie Beers broke her silence and told her story of torment and recovery to CBS 2’s Jennifer McLogan.
“I was more concerned with trying to get free and trying to survive. Looking back, it’s amazing to learn of the support I had from everybody,” Beers told CBS 2. “The remembering has been difficult because I buried it for so long.”
The last words that the public had heard from Beers were in 1993 in a terrifying phone message.
