15 Most Horrifying Kidnappings in History

15. Katie Beers

Katie Beers was only 10 years old back in 1993, when a building contractor called John Esposito kidnapped her. John led Katie to an underground bunker under his home in Long Island, where he kept her in chains and abused her many times over the 16 days that he held her captive. Apparently, Katie’s kidnapping might have been a good thing because throughout her life at home, her ‘father’ Sal Inghilleri treated her like a slave, and raped and abused her many times. After she was freed from the abduction, Katie was sent to a foster home where her foster parents tried their best to take good care of her and provide her with the ideal conditions a child of her age needed to lead a normal life. Sal Inghilleri got 12 years in prison for his abuse, though he died in 2009, while John Esposito got 15 years.
