Attack at the library
Special report
On the night of April 24, an 18-year-old senior at East Bay High School was raped and her skull bashed while she was returning books to the Bloomingdale Regional Public Library. In the months following, her family locked itself away from the world, stepping into a private, numbing hell that few can ever comprehend. Authorities have arrested a 16-year-old boy and charged him with the crime.
