"This time last year I was plotting to kill a man."
So begins 'Stalking the Bogeyman,' a story written by David Holthouse, originally published in 2004 in The Denver Westword.
Holthouse was just a kid when he was raped by the 17 year-old son of his parents' friends.
"When I was seven," Holthouse wrote in the article, "I no longer believed in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy.
"But from that night on, I had no such doubts about the Bogeyman."
