Local sexual assault victim shares story Saturday on ’48 Hours Live to Tell’

Angela Rose was 17 years old when she was abducted by a convicted murderer at knifepoint in the parking lot of Woodfield mall in Schaumburg. She was then driven to a forest preserve and sexually assaulted.

That was nearly 20 years ago. Angela Rose (she doesn’t use her last name for privacy reasons) recounts the horrific details of her experience — and talks about the advocacy organization she founded to help other survivors — in “48 Hours Live to Tell: I Remember Everything,” a short-run series from the producers of CBS’s popular true-crime series.

“Live to Tell” features first-hand accounts from people who nearly lost their lives. Anchored by Chicago-based “48 Hours” correspondent Maureen Maher, Angela Rose’s episode will air at 8 p.m. Saturday on WBBM-Channel 2.
