The true story of the abduction and murder of Opal Jo Jennings in 1999.
PARTNERS IN CRIME A teenager cutting school. A stranded biker hitching a ride. A single mother on her way to a birthday party. A television executive with a nice condo. They had nothing in common -- except their murderer. Robert Ressler, the FBI's expert on serial killers, called him "even more dangerous than Ted Bundy." Blood Rush is the chilling story of the life and crimes of Texas Death Row inmate Ricky Lee Green, America's most deviant serial killer. Raised by abusive relatives, Ricky was an alcoholic runaway by age fifteen, turning tricks for male johns. While building up a police record for everything from making obscene phone calls to sexual assault, his addiction to violent sex grew fiercer. Then he met his wife, Sharon, the preacher's daughter with tastes as perverse as his. With her he discovered a way to take his desires to their horrific extreme: After mutilating and killing, they had sex in the blood of their victims! Based on Ricky Lee Green's own exclusive account, this is the most astounding true crime story ever reported.
On January 12, 1995, in Knoxville, Tennessee, 19year old Colleen Slemmer went for a walk with her friend 18-year-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 the nation, Patricia Springer 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.
