Elizabeth Smart  Wikipedia

Smart was abducted at knifepoint from her bedroom at her family’s home in Salt Lake City, Utah, on June 5, 2002, when she was 14 years old. Smart was raped every day for the next nine months, tied up, and threatened with death if she tried to flee.

On March 12, 2003, she was rescued by police officers on a public roadway in Sandy, Utah, 18 miles (29 kilometers) from her house. Brian David Mitchell and Wanda Ileen Barzee, the abductors, were recognized by two witnesses from an episode of America’s Most Wanted.

Her kidnapping and subsequent rescue became the subject of a made-for-television film, The Elizabeth Smart Story, as well as Lifetime’s I Am Elizabeth Smart and non-fiction books.

On November 16, 2009, Barzee pled guilty to assisting in the kidnapping of Elizabeth Smart as part of a plea bargain with prosecutors. On May 19, 2010, federal Judge Dale A. Kimball sentenced Barzee to 15 years in federal prison. As part of a plea deal between the defense and federal prosecutors, he gave Barzee credit for seven years that she had already served.

The court found Mitchell competent to stand trial for kidnapping and sexual assault charges. He was found guilty on both counts and sentenced in May 2011 to two life terms in federal prison.

Smart established the Elizabeth Smart Foundation in 2011, with the goal of providing hope and ending sexual assault victimization and exploitation via prevention, healing, and advocacy.

Smart was one of four women honored with the Diane von Furstenberg Award in March 2011. On July 7, 2011, ABC News announced that she would join their team as a commentator, focusing primarily on missing persons.

Smart received the Siena Medal award from Theta Phi Alpha National Fraternity in July 2012. The medal is the organization’s highest distinction bestowed upon a non-member. They named it after St. Catherine of Siena, their patroness.

Elizabeth Smart Movie

I Am Elizabeth Smart is a 2017 American criminal drama television film that aired on Lifetime and chronicled Elizabeth Smart’s kidnapping. Alana Boden, Skeet Ulrich, Deirdre Lovejoy, George Newbern, and Anne Openshaw star in the film, which has Elizabeth Smart as the on-screen narrator. In the film, Smart’s wraparound narration was employed to disrupt the events she was witnessing, keeping the audience from becoming detached from the action.

A “Special Edition” of the TV film was released on January 14, 2018, incorporating interviews with Elizabeth Smart, Skeet Ulrich, and Deirdre Lovejoy. Smart saw the movie once and was so impressed with the final product that she didn’t want to see it again.

Elizabeth Smart, 14, was kidnapped from her home in Salt Lake City, Utah, in early June 2002, just days before she was to graduate from middle school. She was held captive by street preacher Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee.

Smart was raped, hungry, and forced to drink alcohol and see pornography while chained to a tree in a campsite just miles from home. She was also occasionally transported to town as her kidnappers procured supplies, her face hidden behind a veil, so close but so far from the frantic relatives and volunteers scouring the region.
