Elizabeth Smart is a woman who, at the age of fourteen, was abducted from her bedroom in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 5, 2002. She was rescued by police officers nine months later on March 12, 2003, in Sandy, Utah, about 18 miles from her home, in the captivity of Brian David Mitchell and Wanda Ileen Barzee, who were indicted for her kidnapping, but initially ruled unfit to stand trial. After both defendants were found competent to stand trial, Barzee was convicted in 2009 and Mitchell was convicted in 2010. Mitchell was held in the Salt Lake County Jail following his sentencing on May 25, 2011. On August 31, he was transferred to a federal prison in Arizona to begin serving a life sentence for his crimes. The abduction of Elizabeth and her rescue were widely reported and were the subject of a made-for-television movie and a published book. The story is incredibly bizarre & the book put out by Elizabeth Smart is an interesting read.
