Where is Jimmy Savile’s Sex Abuse Survivor ‘Sam Brown’ Now? Let’s find out.
‘Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story,’ a Netflix documentary, examines multiple allegations of sexual assault against the media icon, contrasting them with his celebrity. Samantha Brown was one of the survivors who came out after he died in 2011 to tell her story of abuse. Sam tells her heartbreaking story and discusses the impact the ordeal had on her life in the docuseries. So, if you’re curious in Sam’s brave decision to come forward, here’s what we know so far.
Who is Sam Brown, and How Did She Meet Jimmy Savile?
Samantha and her family used to go to the chapel at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire, England, once a week when she was barely a teenager. She grew up in a religious family and recalls seeing youngsters from the hospital come to church. Jimmy volunteered as a porter at the hospital at the time, and he even raised a lot of money for it. Sam recognised him as a significant figure at the time, but he had no idea why he was there.
Sam was eventually assigned the task of carrying the collecting plate around during mass. This plate would be kept in a nearby room where she claims Jimmy was waiting. Sam described how the media personality would massage her back or wrap his arms around her waist on the broadcast.
But things quickly got out of hand, with Jimmy grabbing Sam “everywhere.” He would put his hands down her trousers and fingers inside her mouth, she said on the show.
Jimmy allegedly abused Sam more than 20 times between the ages of three and four years and until she was 15 years old, according to Sam. “It was horrific,” she added. It used to irritate me. Before I walked through the door, I knew what was going to happen. “All I attempted to do was get in and out as quickly as I could.” Jimmy even left the door open, according to Sam, so he could watch the priest.
What happened to Sam Brown and Where Is She Now?
Samantha spent a long time believing it was her fault and eventually quit attending church. She said on the broadcast that she still feels responsibility for what happened since she could have spoken out sooner. But, with the help of her family, Sam eventually chose to speak up about what had happened.
“I can kind of look at my young me with less pain now,” she said in the documentary. I’ve become closer to myself, the child me, and I think that’s a good thing.” Sam is now married and a proud mother of three children in her fifties. She appears to be still residing in England.
