“I had been over the script probably about 100 times…then I narrate a lot of it, so I had seen a lot of the difference pieces, and then finally watching the whole thing come together in one format, it was terrifying,” Smart, who served as the narrator and a producer on I Am Elizabeth Smart, explained to E! News.

Smart was taken from her bedroom and brutalized by her captors for nine months before being rescued when she was just 14.

“I’m pretty proud of it and I’ve watched it and, no offense to Alana [Boden, who

Girl, 12, ‘Brutally Killed’ While Home Alone After She Texted Mom That Someone Was Knocking at the Door

Police say a 12-year-old girl was “brutally killed” inside her home in Nashville, Tennessee, last week not long after she texted her mother about someone knocking at the door, PEOPLE confirms.

Investigators are appealing to the public for any information that may help identify the person who slaughtered 12-year-old Yhoana Arteaga on Aug. 10.

“Thus far, helpful information from citizens, through Crime Stoppers or otherwise, has been very limited,” the Nashville Police Department said in a statement.

“Detectives are optimistic that a meaningful lead or leads will result from scientific testing being conducted by the MNPD Crime Laboratory,” the police statement continues. “This case is a priority for police department scientists as well as fingerprint experts who are studying a number of fingerprints discovered during the processing of the residence.”

Yhoana was found dead by family members at 6:45 p.m. that Thursday, according to

Newtown Mom on Gunman’s Father: ‘He is Alone’ – People

Like many other people, Alissa Parker wanted answers in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Mostly, she wanted to know what could possess 20-year-old Adam Lanza to drive to the Newtown, Connecticut, school on Dec. 14, 2012, and fatally shoot six adults and 20 first graders — including Parker’s six-year-old daughter, Emilie.

Weeks after the shooting, she sought to meet the one person she thought might hold the answer to that question: the gunman’s father, Peter Lanza.

“I wanted to understand what he knew,” Parker tells PEOPLE.

In her new book, An Unseen Angel: A Mother’s Story of Faith, Hope, and Healing After Sandy Hook, which came out April 4, Parker opens up about her meeting with Peter Lanza a month after the shooting and how her perspective about him – and his son – changed after that.

Trying to heal her own shattered heart and unburden herself of the intense hatred
