Josefina Rivera was abducted by Gary Heidnik, an American killer, and remained his prisoner for four months. Kept in horrific conditions by the mentally unstable Heidnik she suffered appallingly but escaped with her life unlike two of his six victims. Josefina was brave enough to trick Heidnik into letting her out to see her children; she fled to the police who arrested him as he waited for her to return. Josefina was raped and abused but her spirit was not extinguished, hers is a story of enormous personal courage – her actions leading to the freedom of the other women involved and the ultimate execution of Heidnik in 1999.

Synopsis

Cellar Girl by Josefina Rivera

'I stood there for a moment, silently speaking to myself: Josefina, you will survive this. You are strong. You are a fighter. You adapt.' As a young mum-of-three, Josefina Rivera was determined to get her troubled life back on track. But then she met Gary Heidnik and the next four months became a living nightmare. Along with five women Josefina was held captive in a cellar where she was starved, beaten, and repeatedly raped to fulfil Heidnik's desire of creating a 'family' of ten children. Cellar Girl is the shocking but ultimately inspiring story of how one brave, young woman saved herself and others from a life worse than hell.
