Today, Elizabeth is thriving in college and doing very well in her music. "I thank God, I really do. And I count my blessings every day," Ed says. "I have a wonderful wife and wonderful family and wonderful extended family, and I know that they've made it possible, along with God and all the prayers of everyone."
The trial of Elizabeth's alleged captors, Brian Mitchell and Wanda Barzee, is pending until they are considered competent to stand trial. "Our goal is to see him not hurt anyone else," Ed says. "And he is behind bars or he is secured so that he can't do that. And, I mean, nothing's going to change with us going to trial and for this to come to an end. We know what he did. We know that he would do it again."
Still, if the day comes, Ed says the family intends to go to trial. "And Elizabeth will be there and she will face him and she will be ready to tell him off."
