When Sabrina “Bree” Kahler was born on June 20, 1982, she suffered difficulty breathing– and actually stopped respiration on numerous occasions. This forced doctors to perform resuscitation and resulted in a lack of oxygen flowing to Sabrina’s brain.
So, as an infant, she experienced some delays in mental development. And by the time Sabrina was 20-years-old, she had the mental age of a teenager between 14 and 16 years of age.
Still, Sabrina was known by her friends and family as a loving, kind, and trusting young woman.
Just four days after celebrating her birthday, though, the 20-year-old from Erie, Pennsylvania, mysteriously disappeared.
It all began on June 24, 2002, when Sabrina went to go swimming with her boyfriend’s friend, a boy named David.
David reportedly picked her up in a Ford Bronco, and the pair traveled to a local swimming hole at Eagley Park.
Then, after being in the water for about 30 minutes, there was allegedly a confrontation between David and his ex-girlfriend.
So, he and Sabrina left the swimming hole and instead went to get ice cream at a shop known as Tasty Twist. While there, David also called the police.
A Pennsylvania State Trooper ultimately arrived at Tasty Twist and accompanied the pair back to Eagley Park.
