Ep 3 Sheila Eddy and Rachel Shoaf (Skylar Neese)

Skylar Neese was stabbed over fifty times by her lifelong best friend, Sheila Eddy, and another close friend, Rachel Shoaf. She was missing for six months before Rachel caved to the pressure of guilt and the police closing in when she finally confessed to the murder that the two had planned for months. During the time that Skylar was missing, the murderers kept acting like they were grieving friends and helped Skylar's parents with the search efforts. The biggest question to this case is WHY? According to the killers, “We just didn’t like her anymore”. All three were 16 years old at the time of the murder.
