Katie Beers

Twenty years after she was kidnapped, forced into a damp, dark underground hole – 2 feet wide, 7 feet long and 3 feet high – and often held in chains, Katie Beers is speaking out at last about the hellish circumstances she survived. Beers's case made headlines in in 1993 when her abductor, building contractor John Esposito, confessed and led police to the crude underground bunker, hidden by a 200-lb. concrete wall, he'd dug underneath his Long Island home. Now living in rural Pennsylvania, married and the mother of two toddlers, Beers realizes she will never have "full closure" on what happened to her, but she hopes her story will help others who've suffered abuse.
