Not much shocks me anymore but this story has me speechless. Young girls killed their longtime friend.

Pure evil ... what in the world is happening to people.

It seems 16 yr old Shoaf is being held in a juvenile detention center. But on down in the article apparently she must have been tried as an adult. It says prosecutors plan to recommend a 20-year prison sentence. But she could get as many as 40 years under the law. Twenty years is not enough time. Skylar Neese had a promising future.

Something went terribly wrong with these girls. To be that brutal so young. Takes queen bees and wanna bees to a VERY different level.

Sorry I didn't put subject in thread line. I haven't started many threads

The WOW was fine it did it for me. LOL

I still think this is pure evil. Teenage girls usually have make-up & hair, clothes, boys on their minds ... not making a plan, picking Skylar up, stabbing a her to death and hiding her body. The article doesn't go into detail but it seems Skylar was an honor student and from the picture she was a pretty young lady.

Where I live if Shoaf was tried as a juvenile she would have been released when she was 18 years old. It appears the second girl involved is remaining anonymous and because she is a juvenile they can't release her name. I bet her attorney is trying to get the court to try her as a juvenile. I think WVA has the same laws release at 18. Maybe since Shoaf was tried as an adult the other girl will be too.

Pure evil!

They spent time with her mother consoling her! Saw a former FBI Special Agent talking about this on CNN last night. Her speculation on the case, it was some type of leader/follower relationship that experienced some kind of recent humiliation between the three. Stabbing someone to death is a very personal way to kill someone.


The two girls, one of whom has now pleaded guilty, spent a lot of time with Neese’s mother after the girl’s slaying. The girls even helped with the search operation and tried to look innocent throughout.

I can't imagine being the parent of the two murderers. It gives "unconditional love" new meaning.

Pure evil!
According to the article the murder was committed in Wayne PA across the border, so I would think PA is where the girls are and it will be according to PA law....still pure evil


The three girls drove to Wayne Township, Pa., got out of the car and the suspects pretended to socialize with Neese.

"And, at a planned and agreed upon moment," Ashdown said, the girls "attacked and stabbed Skylar to death, and they left her there

Anyone who can plan a murder should be tried as an adult for premeditated murder...and the hell with your age. And the penalty for premeditated murder should be life in prison, no parole ever.

And it is irrelevant that the victim was attractive and intelligent, she could have been ugly and dumb as a doorknob...she would have still been an entirely innocent person slaughtered by two evil creatures.

I agree ... I can't understand why the prosecutors say they plan to recommend a 20-year prison sentence for Shoaf. But she could get as many as 40 years under the law. Give her the 40 years.

One of her friends admitted to the police that she and her other friends plotted to kill her? Why would anyone kill a friend? It appears as though some kids in this country have some serious psychological problems. Are schools supposed to be on the lookout for these troubled kids? 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?

OK I wrote a whole post in your response to yours but then decided to do more research. Here's what I found.

On twitter, you can find out other girls' name, I'm not going to say it on public forum. From the twitter sphere I found out that people in town are placing more blame on the younger girl. I guess she's a real piece of work. Authorities, gave Shoaf a deal, in order to get the younger girl. That shocks me even more! Hopefully, well know more soon.
