Kenneth Parnell was a serial sex offender living in Northern California when he kidnapped Steven Stayner from his home. He created a new identity for Steven and held him captive for several years before abducting Timothy White. The two boys would encounter abuse for years before finally making their incredible escape. But the trauma and damage done to them would have a rippling effect on their families. Savannah details how Kenneth and an accomplice were able to evade authorities for so long, how Steven and Timothy managed to hitchhike to a police station and get Kenneth arrested, and how potentially the effect of losing his brother would cause Steven's brother Cary Stayner to ultimately become a serial killer himself.
