Timeline: The Jill Carroll Abduction

Jill Carroll, a 28-year-old freelance reporter on assignment for the Christian Science Monitor, was abducted on January 7, 2006 in Baghdad. Carroll received her bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst in 1999. In 2002, Carroll moved to Jordan — six months before the Iraq war started in March 2003 — "to learn as much about the region as possible before the fighting began." Jill Carroll was laid off as a reporting assistant for the Wall Street Journal before heading overseas.
