Hey Cursed Ones!
Today’s blog post isn’t going to be a complete one. I had a friend, Dominique of Let’s Wine About Murder Podcast come onto the show to tell me a story, and because of that, I won’t be posting the full thing here, as I didn’t write out a full script on it. So, here is a summary and some photos! For more information, please listen to the full episode and check out Kara’s website.
In June of 2002, 15-year-old Kara Robinson Chamberlain’s life would be forever changed. On a beautiful Summer day, she was kidnapped from her friend’s front yard. She hadn’t known the man, and was suspicious of him almost immediately. After getting entirely too close to her, he grabbed her, and put her in a plastic container in the back seat of his car.
Kara saved her own life. Not only did she escape her captor, but she led the police right to him. She memorized every turn he took from her friend’s house, his dentist’s name, what the man’s wife looked like from family photos in his apartment. --Yes, he was married. As it turned out, and as she’d suspected, Kara wasn’t his first victim. Her kidnapper, Richard Evonitz, was a serial killer responsible for the kidnap, rape, and death of three girls in Spotsylvania, Virginia.
His murder victims were 16-year-old Sofia Silva, and Kristin and Kati Lisk. All had been abducted from their front yards. All were left to be found in water, a creek and a river.
Upon being discovered by the police, Evonitz first attempted evasion, then took his own life like the despicable, cowardly, JFWBF he truly was.
Kara now uses her own traumatic experience for good, speaking to people around the country and helping to educate victims service workers, as well as just helping people be their best selves.

Dominique’s sources will be read off at the end of the episode!
