In 1970, Sara moved to the State of Washington with her family. Upon arrival, the family photo was placed in the newspaper as her father held a prominent position in the community. After that photo appeared, Sara began getting phone calls from a friendly voice who had seen her photo, a man calling himself "Teddy". Simultaneously, another man was showing up at her fashion shows around the Seattle Tacoma area and at her home in Tacoma. This man was frightening, intense and appeared at the same time as attempts were made on her bedroom windows of the home. She was only 16. By the summer of 1971, Ted was showing up at her home when her parents were gone during daylight hours and ramping up the phone calls and "secret friends" relationship. It culminated in a violent rape that nearly killed her and when she didn't report him, empowered him to continue his stalking, coercion and control of her for the next three years, culminating in increasing stalking, kidnappings and injuries to her during the escalation period of spring 1974. It was Sara's room window that Ted parked in the night he abducted Georgann Hawkins, who Sara knew. Sara was back and forth to the Bay area of California during the years 1971 to 1973 because she had lived there and she was also traveling around the state of Washington. Her story is supported by a wealth of documents, many of which have never been publicly released. Her physical features, her locations, her memory fragments all line up to details that were present in the case over that four year period. Despite this, law enforcement refused to look at what she was saying for over a decade. She begged for victim services for help with the severe PTSD and fragmented memory so that she could get closure, but they refused to give her a case number or an investigation. This book is very important to society for many reasons: many of which have nothing to do with Ted Bundy. There are issues in here that span many areas of the justice system in this country and which need to be addressed. It is also an important book for understanding how PTSD in the context of head injury can present to authorities and to family.
