Lenore Rattray

Front page of a yellowing newspaper, the Sunday Province, shows full-page coverage of Lenore's ordeal. The headline reads in large, black all-caps: Deliverance. A graduation photo of a smiling Lenore is next to text that reads "Lenore Rattray is free after her eight-day hostage ordeal; Second woman also rescued after kidnapping".

The Detective Perspective: introduction to Detective Stu Gillett (retired)

His name is Stu Gillett and before his official retirement in 2013 he spent 34 years in law enforcement.
