Ali Kemp faced a promising future. An honors student at Kansas State University, she enjoyed poetry, playing sports and being with friends and family. But her life came to a tragic end when a man brutally beat and murdered her at the neighborhood pool in Leawood, Kan. For more than two years, an unrelenting manhunt ensued — resulting in the killer’s capture. This is the story of Ali, her family’s dedication to finding her killer and preventing other women across the country from such horrible crimes by creating the nation’s first free self-defense program for women.
