Episode 18. The Tormented Tale of Cindy James

Cindy James was a beloved nurse with a passion for helping children with learning difficulties. She exuded warmth and kindness, taking pleasure in tending her garden as she did the patients under her care.

On October 7, 1982, Cindy's life would change forever when a faceless and nameless attacker would commence a reign of terror on Cindy. For seven years she endured stalking, torture, harassment, and threats until, one day, it all ended.
