16 Reasons People Are Talking About Netflix’s True Crime Doc ‘Abducted In Plain Sight’
The documentary features interviews with Jan, her parents and sisters, the FBI agent who worked her kidnapping cases, and B’s brother.
The documentary starts out normal enough. Jan begins telling the story of her abuse at the hands of B. Her parents cut in and out to offer details and background for some of the story. They set it up like it’s going to be a terrifying case of a family friend turning out to be a monster. And it is! It is definitely that. But then we start to get little tidbits of information from the family and the FBI agent, Pete Welsh. The Brobergs talk (rather casually) about how B would do anything and everything to get close to Jan. Hmmmm, OK? That seems … not right? But the parents discuss it so casually, you start to wonder if maybe there was more to the story. BOY WAS THERE EVER.
