In the summer of 2016, in the city of Bend Oregon, the future was looking bright for Kaylee Sawyer. The 23-year old had recently decided on becoming a dentist, was in a loving relationship with her long-time boyfriend, and had the full support of her close-knit family.

But in the early morning hours of July 24th, while Kaylee was walking alone in the dark after a rare argument with her boyfriend, someone she thought she could trust offered her a ride. Someone she thought could help her.
