This must be the worst thing I’ve heard about in a while. Jenn Gibbons was attempting a solo circumnavigation of Lake Michigan to raise money for breast cancer survivors when she was raped. This part made me want to throw up:
What’s especially chilling about Jenn’s situation is that her attacker traveled, possibly over a considerable distance, to find her. Police and her team think he was probably tracking her via her blog, and used it to find an opportune moment to sexually assault her. Which implies a high degree of preparation and forethought.
