Episode 171 – The Grudge – The Abduction Of Sasha Krause

27-year-old Sasha Krause had her whole life ahead of her. She’d already made her parents incredibly proud of the young woman she’d become and they were eager to see how her life would unfold after moving away from home.

And although Sasha was living in an entirely different state, her parents felt their daughter was safe, living in a peaceful community of Mennonites.

There was no way Sasha’s family, the community she was living in, or for Sasha herself to know, a predator was on the lookout, for someone just like her.
