In the Spring of 1977, 20-year-old Colleen Stan left school to hitchhike from Oregon to Los Angeles. Her journey would last seven years. When she accepted a ride from Cameron and Janice Hooker, she ended up their captive.
AMERICAN JUSTICE® explores the case that became a national sensation after Colleen finally escaped. The details remain almost too sensational to believe. Colleen was raped, tortured and kept confined, often inside a coffin-like box beneath the Hooker's waterbed, by a couple that appeared to be a mild-mannered, church going family. Cameron Hooker insisted that their perverse slave-master relationship was consensual, and even that they were in love. Colleen told a far different tale. The case remains riddled with contradictions, but they make the story all the more compelling.
THE GIRL IN THE BOX features expert, inside analysis from a number of the people closest to the case.
