Left for Dead - Airs Aug. 18

Among our favorite audio producers are the students at the Salt Institute of Documentary Studies. On this show, we air three Salt stories, including "Left for Dead." Here's a description of that piece: On May, 27, 2008, two men broke into the Guerrette family’s home in the rural town of Pittston, Maine. They carried a machete. William Guerrette, a former state legislator, was severely wounded in the head during the break-in. So was his 10-year-old daughter. Now, two years after the incident the Guerrettes’ continue to beat back their fears. They struggle with traumatic brain injury. And perhaps worst of all, they realize their story may never have a happy ending. (Photo by Sarah Craig)
