On March 28 2013, Dr Phil talks to two women that were kidnapped and held captive. Their families led massive manhunts for them across the country and their stories haven’t been broadcast until now.
Dr Phil: Katie Beers
At 10-years-old, Katie Beers was kidnapped by a family friend, John Esposito. He had a criminal history and held Katie in an underground bunker for 16 days. Katie has written a book, Buried Memories, about her traumatic event.
Dr Phil tells Katie that she was part of the reason her captor turned her over. She would ask him a series of questions about her future every day he held her captive. Who will she marry, will she have kids, what happens when you turn 18. He would respond that she would marry him and they would have kids together. Katie hoped that he would change his mind and release her. Eventually, Esposito turned himself in.
Katie thinks that he deserves to die in prison. He is up for parole in September 2013.
Dr Phil: Sarah Maynard
Two years ago, Sarah Maynard and her little brother came home to find their mother and a friend murdered in their home. Sarah was just 13 and she was held captive by the killer for four days. He tied her up and brutally beat and killed her little brother. The authorities found her in a bunker filled with leaves.
Sarah and her father, Larry, are coming to Dr Phil to talk about her book, The Girl in the Leaves. Dr Phil is offering Sarah and her father help for post-traumatic stress disorder. Sarah tells him she throws herself into academics and sports in order to avoid the bad memories. She and her father are protected by a police dog from the canine unit that searched for her mother and firearms.
