“He kissed me and threw me down the cubby hole”
'Spaceplex' is 9 year old Katie Beers’ favorite spot, before she’s abducted at that same location in December 1992, just before her birthday. For 17 days, the investigators dig into the family’s lies, each more suspicious than the next, hoping to find the lost girl. Katie is trapped in the wall, but she still has her wits, which will eventually lead to justice against her kidnappers.

Amazing story, it’s incredible to know she went through that so young and she is so incredibly strong today. It’s so easy to let our past traumas wear us down but she faced death and still didn’t let it change her heart. Truly inspiring.

Every adult in her early childhood has failed her, and in the end she came out over each of them. Katie is such a remarkable human being.

ALWAYS listen to kids when they tell you about abuse... even when it seems impossible, never ask "how could ALL these adults fail this child?" because this is a perfect example of how this happens all the time. Monsters are everywhere.

thank you so much for omitting details of the sexual assault. so many videos that cover cases like this spend too much time on these facts, and it tends to feel more exploitive than informative. especially because this happened when she was so young, i really appreciate the respect you treated this case with. what an incredibly brave and smart girl. this was a great video.

@Asriel🗿 how is that of any use for you? also 95% of the time they dont even describe it in a neutral fact and information based manner. It's just shock and awe for gross viewers. For me, I know they were abused. Out of respect and to keep their dignity in tact, I dont need to hear about how horrible it was or how painful it was. How sadistic are people to want to hear that. I'm also here, watching awful stories for my own interest, but I'm not interested in hearing in graphic detail about each rape she endured.

Katie is one of the smartest abduction survivors I have ever had the pleasure of hearing about! It's *sad* that she was kidnapped. She was able to keep herself alive, and that was before Criminal Minds or true crime shows! So proud of her for using her instincts and not allowing this monster to take her life!

Holy wow! The fact that everybody in her life prior to her adoption has been so exceptionally horrible and abusive with her, made her a smart cunning survivor. The TV was the lifeline that kept her going and give her hope that somebody somewhere was gonna find her and not give up on her. What a remarkable little girl. I love where it says “her incessant nagging” because it just shows how relentlessly determined this little girl was in surviving this ordeal. Short of being killed there was nothing he could’ve done to her to stop her from willing to survive, because she was already so used to abuse it made her hearty and strong. Wow. 💪

More than the food, it impressed me that she had the intelligence to count the links to know how to chain herself back up without raising suspicion. A lot of adults wouldn't even think of that. Unfortunately kids in her kind of upbringing often develop survival skills at a very early age, especially bc of hypervigilance (a symptom of trauma).

KissMyAspergers 9 aylar önce
@Carol Maresca To me, it doesn't. I have no clue where society collectively got the idea that the more impoverished and backwater a place you live in, the more twisted shit that goes on inside of it. True Crime got its start centuries ago, but I was born in 1990, and grew up during roughly the second decade in a row of its skyrocketing popularity. I read huge encyclopedias on serial killers. I was never under the illusion that a country being richer, or (insert-majority-race-for-location-of-your-choice-here)-er, or more educated would somehow make me safer from absolute monsters. It just meant my death would be sensationalized, and then immediately overshadowed by the person who killed me in the long-term. And if I lived, I'd be living with emotional and physical trauma so horrid that I'd feel like surviving wasn't even worth it (that's a judgement of my own mindset, not how all survivors of sexual trauma should feel or some absurd shit like that). I can't ever imagine growing up feeling completely safe all the time, or at least safe enough to think that stories like these sound too alien to be happening at home. They've just _never_ felt alien to me.

Incredible! Both of these people. Her, for being so strong and the derived for not letting go until he found her.

What an incredibly smart and strong little girl she was! She saved herself and has become a wonderful woman. Thank goodness the 2 men died in prison, but 4 to 12 years for the godmother’s husband is way too lenient. People who abuse children should never be free!

She was so smart at that young age and so strong. I'm so sorry for her but more power to her ❤️

The 4-12 years is so disgusting. Traumatize a child so that their life is that much harder and you might be out in 4 years. This is exactly why a lot of kids - myself included - don’t say anything. It’s already so traumatic retelling it over and over while people decide whether or not you’re lying based on if you express the right emotions in a believable way to them personally… Imagine getting through all of that and your “success” is them being locked up for 4 years. Kids are failed by the system as much as their families smdh

But there is also the fact that criminals should have an incentive not to commit another crime to coverup the first one. He is a monster he doesn't care about the girl's life, atleast he had an incentive to give up and not be in prison for life instead take the lesser punishment, this actually saved this young girl's life.

Although she didn't feel the love of her mother , there's a detective who much better and cared for her for a long time than her biological mother who abandoned her, plus a loving foster family, salute for these wonderful people, who give all the love to this little brave, strong girl.. 🫡🦾

I worked at a children’s home in the 80s and we had a little girl that was six years old. She was brought to us, and she had been kept in the bedroom, her entire life, never leaving it, and only using a coffee can to go to the bathroom in. She was from the inner city of LA, we never could do much with her. We worked with her for six months and she refused to use the toilet and even though she was normal mentally and physically, she was so wounded from her experience that to this day I’m not sure that anybody could really help her I hope and pray that somehow somebody got through to her and she became a somewhat normal adult.

The fact esposito died the same day he admitted his guilt is divine justice at its finest and the fact that all articles say it was of natural causes due to a heart attack. Chef's kiss. Cosmic Karma

What child thinks about counting the chain links. Her thought process is beyond incredible. Especially that fact she’s being demonstrable hurt mentally and physically. Not to mention her fear of being killed. Much much amazement and admiration for this lovely soul.

She had these survival skills because she was already used to surviving under terrifying adults. You have to be thinking two steps ahead of them or you get your ass kicked. It's absolutely admirable but it's also an incredibly sad testament to what she endured growing up.

Survival instincts kick in when traumatic situations like this happen. She probably didn’t even think about how smart it was to think at the time she probably just thought “shit I need to stay alive as long as possible”. Our brains do amazing things to keep us alive. She was exhibiting the fight response and it kept her alive.

@Iamjphnycc That's the logic we're taught. I, as an adult, still believe the older adults and abled people are smarter than me. I could be 80 and still think there are older better smarter people than me.

What happened to Katie prior to her being abducted by the so called mastermind, made her wise beyond her years. The fact that she outsmarted every single one of those disgusting humans(for lack of a better word) shows they all contributed to their own demise. She could’ve let them break her but she didn’t. They are all dead and in hell and she wins. Much respect Katie.

She wasn't allowed to go to school but even as a child, she was naturally intelligent and it's still apparent in adulthood.

That's incredible that a 10 year girl can change a kidnapper's mind, and I'm so happy that she's alive and will today.
