Survivor


Sandi Fedor is a sexual assault survivor whose story was the basis for the 2019 newspaper series “Case Closed.” Fedor reported her assault to the police but had to work for years to convince an understaffed and undertrained Cleveland Police Department to complete an investigation and arrest her attacker, a serial rapist who kidnapped and raped another woman months after she made her report. Fedor’s story highlighted how police inaction affected her life and prevented her from starting to heal from the attack. Fedor has continued to advocate for change within the Cleveland police department as well as with the Ohio Crime Victim Justice Center.
