Unbelievable: What happens to Marie?
In 2008, Marie Alder, the 18-year-old American woman who lives in Washington, was raped but was believed by nobody. In 2011, two detectives Grace and Karen investigated and joined the dots to track down a serial rapist who leaves little to no evidence. They follow the strands and the dead ends and thankfully catch the rapist, Chris McCarthy. Chris is subjected to the maximum penalty, 327 and a half years in prison.
The real “Chris,” who is a person bearing the name Marc O’Leary is at present serving his sentence in jail. After the rapist is finally convicted of his crime, Marie finds her peace and happiness and is finally ready to start her life anew, as the two detectives restore her faith in justice and goodness.
