When she was 18 and holding the title Miss Israel, Linor Abargil was crowned Miss World in 1998. But this beauty queen had a horrific story: Just six weeks before, she had been held captive, stabbed repeatedly and brutally raped by her Israeli-born travel agent on her way home from a modeling assignment in Italy.
