Audio feature: Part II of a look back at 2006 East Chapel Hill High hostage situation


It's been ten years since Lisa Kukla and Chelsea Slegal were held hostage at East Chapel Hill High School.

In part one of this series, we looked at what happened during the hour Chelsea Slegal and Lisa Kukla were held hostage at East Chapel Hill High School on April 24, 2006.

Ten years after being held hostage in her high school, Slegal says she's taking things day by day. She still has flashbacks sometimes. When there's a thunderstorm and flashes of lighting, she remembers the gunshots. 

Kukla left her job as a teacher at East Chapel Hill High School not long after the incident. She says that the school district tried to downplay what happened that day. 

In the final installment: the criminal case and what life is like now for Lisa and Chelsea.

Thanks for reading.
