Paperback. On January 12, 1995, in Knoxville, Tennessee, 19yr old Colleen Slemmer went for a walk with her friend, 18yr old Christa Pike. Suddenly, Christa turned on Colleen, accusing her of flirting with her boyfriend. Then, the words turned to shocking blows. An enraged Christa used a box knife to cut her rival's throat and a mini meat cleaver to inflict more havoc. Half-naked, Colleen crawled through her own blood begging for her life. In the middle of the hour-long assault, a satanic symbol was carved in the dying girl's chest. And when Christa was finally done, she took a piece of Colleen's skull as a macabre souvenir. What were the dark forces that drove angelic-faced Christa to commit such a savage murder and become the youngest woman ever to be put on Death Row? In this shocking expose of a case that stunned America, the author takes us through a horrifying crime scene and into the heart and mind of a murderess who killed for love - and would die for it, too. Illus. with 16pp. of photos + Epilogue. 256pp. mass market p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned edges, with no creasing to covers. Nr. F.
