Annabelle Neilson: Horrific Assault, Drug addiction

Neilson moved to Perth, Australia as a dropout. There she fell victim to a horrific assault. A man had tried her to a tree and beaten for hours. Years later in 2015 interview with Daily Mail, she shared her story,

“The attack lasted for two hours. I was tied to a tree and continually beaten. I looked like the elephant girl by the end of it. I managed to escape with my life but I needed reconstructive surgery because my face was so disfigured. 

After that, I fell into a serious depression and became a heroin addict because it provided an escape bubble and was the only way I could cope. In a way, heroin saved me because otherwise, I would have killed myself.” 

The man was later arrested and convicted for the murder of three other women.

In later teens, Neilson struggled again, this time with drug addiction. The addiction was brought on by the previous attack she had endured. With effort, she overcame her addiction becoming sober in her twenties. For the rest of her life, she remained sober.
