Master Detective July 2022


One minute she was in her pal’s front garden waiting to go for a swim, the next Kara Robinson was trapped in a storage box in the boot of her abductor’s car. It was June 2002, 20 years ago, when the then 15-year-old from South Carolina was snatched at gunpoint by a killer and rapist searching for his next victim. But brave Kara lived to tell the tale.
