"I will find you." After he raped her for an hour at knifepoint, those are the words her attacker spoke to Joanna Connors before he let her go. The man was quickly captured and later convicted. Connors, a Plain Dealer reporter and critic, writes of the damage he inflicted and her quest to learn more about the life of her attacker, in her new book: "I Will Find You." Joanna Connors shares her powerful story with us on The Sound of Ideas. Plus, a conversation with two rape crisis centers in Northeast Ohio. And a look at how campuses are changing how they deal with sexual assault cases and culture on campus.
