In the new special “I Survived a Serial Killer,” E! chronicles the personal accounts of three women who faced death and lived to tell their tales. Through the victims’ first-hand accounts and insider interviews, this captivating hour-long special explores violent cases that garnered nationwide publicity for their horrific details and surprising outcomes.
Featured in the special are:
Shea McDonough (Chelmsford, Massachusetts)
In July of 2007, long-haul trucker Adam Leroy Lane prowled neighborhoods near the interstate looking for female victims. He succeeded in murdering two women…then he met Shea McDonough.
Michele Chapman (Zachary, Louisiana)
In April of 1993, 15 year-old Michele Chapman survived a vicious attack by a man with a machete. For ten years no one was prosecuted. Then, a series of women were raped and murdered in nearby Baton Rouge. By using Michele’s description of her attacker, authorities brought a violent predator to justice.
Lydia Tillman (Fort Collins, Colorado) & Kenia Monge (Denver, Colorado)
On Fourth of July weekend in 2011, firefighters discovered Lydia Tillman naked, brutally beaten, and barely alive after she leaped from the second story window of her burning apartment. DNA was obtained from Lydia that identified her attacker…and, in a surprising turn, linked this predator to the mysterious 2011 disappearance of 19 year-old Kenia Monge.
