Ep. 29 Closing Time

The Yogurt Shop Murders

Most have looked forward to everything that high school had to offer. From prom queen, captain of your dream team, to making new friends. Some may even call it preparing you for adulthood by learning how to drive and landing your first job to make some extra cash. Today I want to tell you about four intelligent young women who were robbed of everything some of us took for granted.

Jennifer Harbison (17), Sara Harbison (13), Amy Ayers (15), and Eliza Thomas (17)
