Juliette had read all those tips in the women’s magazines in the 1980s that cautioned women not to fight an attacker, to try to get out alive. And he said, ‘I’m not really into that.’” A single mother, Juliette was alone that night – her daughter was staying with the girl’s grandparents. Juliette’s attacker put a pillow over her face and continued to rape her. “The pillow came off my face then and I’m like, ‘What did you do? ’ He said, ‘You’ve seen my face and now I have to kill you.’” Call it survival. She blacked out briefly, only to regain consciousness as he stabbed her in the heart and twisted the knife. “In my mind I’m like, ‘Well, I’m 32 and you know, I’ve had a pretty good life. But tell the doctors that I have a four-year-old daughter and they have to keep me alive.’” She lived, barely. And now, 17 years later, Juliette’s attacker has been found, thanks to two young prosecutors opening an old case, a long-lost DNA “cold hit,” and the perseverance of a victim who hasn’t stopped telling her powerful story.
