4 teenage girls captured a 12 year old girl, tricked the girl into thinking her girlfriend would meet her at a well known teenage hang out area and then bound her up. One of the girls mocked her crying while they were driving. Two girls, Melinda Loveless and Laurie Tackett made Shanda strip naked and then Melinda beat her up with her fists, then slamming Shanda’s head into her knee. Then, after attempting to slash her throat (the knife was too dull), they stabbed her and strangled her until she was unconscious. After going to Laurie’s home to clean up, they realized Shanda was screaming in the truck and so Laurie went out and stabbed Shanda several more times. While country driving again later, Shanda started crying and making gurgling noises and when she sat up after they opened the truck, Laurie beat her with a tire iron until she was silent. Then later, while still alive after all, they poured gasoline on her and lit her on fire. Later they went to McDonalds for breakfast and they joked that Shanda’s burnt corpse looked like the sausages they were eating.
