In the video below, an FBI agent and a Salt Lake City police detective interview kidnapper Brian David Mitchell in 2003 after he was found with Elizabeth Smart, who had been missing since 2002. This interview, which was released after motions filed by The Salt Lake Tribune, was played for the jury in open court during Mitchell's 2010 trial. He was found guilty of kidnapping and sentenced to life in federal prison.
Listen to him as he repeatedly presents himself as a "true prophet of Jesus Christ" and then understand that he kidnapped Elizabeth Smart at knifepoint from her bedroom at the age of 14 and repeatedly raped and sexually abused her ("on a daily basis up to three or four times") until she was rescued 9 months later. Elizabeth recently spoke out here about the key role pornography played in her abduction and abuse.
This is the end-game when someone creates their own truth, putting themselves at the center of their existence - insanity and unspeakable, horrific acts against others. As one of the law enforcement officers says to Mitchell, "This is all about you and what you want."
