I was browsing through old AMW articles and I found this one from two years ago by the New York Daily News. It talks about Kara Robinson, who, when she was 15 years old, unknowingly brought down a serial killer.
In 2002, Robinson was abducted by Richard Evonitz while outside doing chores and raped for hours. She was able to escape by getting out of her handcuffs and went to police, where, thanks to her excellent memory, officers were able to find Evonitz's home and begin searching. During the search, they found evidence that linked Evonitz to the murders of Kristin & Kati Lisk and Sofia Silva, three teenage girls who were all killed in Virginia in the mid-90s. (The most shocking evidence was Kristin Lisk's fingerprint that was found inside of Evonitz's trunk) But before they could arrest him, Evonitz committed suicide.
It turns out, back in 2010, Robinson graduated from the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy. While it's unclear what she's doing now, I think it's amazing that she decided to go into law enforcement.
