Skylar's father wants to know why?? The only reason he has received "they didn't like her anymore." Skylar was an only child.

From everything I have been reading on [domain blocked due to spam] and Twitter the other girl was the mastermind behind the killing.

Do we have facilities to adjust such behavior before it gets so out of hand? Were there no warnings ahead of time that these girls had problems? It seems that there should have been. I would think that there is a large spectrum between peculiar behavior and actual murder.

Did these things happen in the 1950's? In those days people were more conformist, less accepting of cultural and other differences. Maybe, in a way, that sort of conformity acted as a drag on radical ideas, like killing friends - just a thought. (Please don't think I am advocating to bring the 50's back.)
Perhaps we are more of a 'live and let live' society now, and pass over the oddities of others more easily?
Well back then they used to sterilize people who were insane. They can bring that back. One good thing about social media and teens is that its going to get easier to profile these types. Back in the 50s murders were not as easy to solve.

But it did happen:
Young Murderers

"In the early 1950's, Juliet Hulme, 15, helped Pauline Parker, 15, kill Honora Parker, Pauline's mother by hitting her in the head with a half-brick in a stocking. They spent five years in prison. The Justice Department gave them new identities when released."

Now that social media is worldwide, some people may get the idea that they will be famous if they commit a crime.

Their smiling mug says it all.

A teenage killer’s eerie tweets she sent after stabbing friend to death: 'We really did go on three'

Quote:
As the investigation into Neese's disappearance continued, suspicion mounted that the girls were harboring a secret. A few months later, Shoaf suffered a nervous breakdown. Then, on Jan. 3, 2013, she confessed to her attorney and police that she had stabbed Neese to death with Eddy. She agreed to lead authorities to Neese's remains, which were in a wooded area over the Pennsylvania state line, about 20 miles from Star City.

“We asked Rachel, ‘Why did you guys kill Skylar?’ And her only answer to that was, ‘We just didn’t like her,’” State Police Cpl. Ronnie Gaskin told "20/20" in a previous interview.

Those mug shots made me mad. How do you get hair and make up like that in prison?

The psych on the 20/20 show last night said their personality types adjust very well to prison and that they probably are as happy as they look. They still have guards and other inmates to "use." I wonder if they see each other in prison? I wonder if Sheila is angry with Rachel for telling authorities what they did?

Skylar's dad thinks they killed her so she wouldn't tell about their lesbian activities. Skylar's tweets indicate that she was taunting them with the fact that she knew things.
