For the past year, reporter Sarah Delia has worked to unwrap the case of "Linda," a Charlotte-area woman who was sexually assaulted by a stranger in 2015… and is still struggling to find answers. In a world full of #MeToo’s, justice might look as swift as one woman speaking up, but for many, resolution is a long and winding road. Follow the investigation at WFAE.org/SheSays.

It is an atrocity how common sexual assaults are and how even more common the victims must relive the crimes over and over again. I hope this podcast will shed light and bring change to the system and to public opinion. Linda, you are brave! Thank you WFAE for telling this story. We need to hear it.
So much to answer for.
Sarah Delia is a hell of a reporter, and this first episode is amazing! I can’t wait to hear the whole season!
Lack of training and resources
The lack of training in law enforcement, medicine, child protective services is appalling: and it STOPS investigations and justice. What a great podcast. Perhaps something will change.
