When it comes to documentaries, Netflix has created some crackers. From Making A Murderer to Evil Genius, the streaming service sure knows how to keep us coming back for more. Its newest documentary, Abducted In Plain Sight, tells the story of Jan Broberg, who was abducted not once, but twice, in the 1970s.
Broberg's captor, Robert Berchtold, was a close family friend, and used that relationship to get away with multiple abductions of Broberg, as well as alleged molestation, rape, and brainwashing. Berchtold went to incredible lengths to pull of his plan, which included manipulation of both Broberg's parents and Broberg herself, who was 12 (and then 14). Berchtold allegedly built a relationship with Broberg and convinced her that they needed to have a child together in order to save the world. After the first abduction, Berchtold got the Brobergs to forgive him; two years later, he abducted her again.
In 2003, Broberg's mother wrote a book about the ordeal. The documentary, which arrived on Netflix this month, shares an even deeper look at Broberg's tale, with audio recordings of Berchtold and reports from the FBI, which investigated the case.
