Rise to Fame
She would stay there for the next five years in the same capacity, during which time she would win an Edward R.

Stacey received the award for her coverage of an Olympic athlete’s battle with cancer, but her notable achievements continued throughout the year as she received an Emmy Award for her coverage of stories from the military base at Fort Irwin.

Butler gained attention once more as she began documenting a secretive polygamous group living in Colorado City, Arizona, staying a year in the group in secret to document their endeavors.

He is now serving a life sentence plus 20 years in prison.

This proves very difficult for them to integrate into normal society, as they were raised to mistrust the outside world.
