Two men politely offer them a ride home. But they were anything but Good Samaritans. The girls would suffer unspeakable crimes at the hands of these men before being thrown from a bridge into the North Platte River. One miraculously survived. The other did t.Years later, author and journalist Ron Franscell who lived in Casper at the time of the crime, and was a friend to Amy and Becky can't forget Wyoming's most shocking story of abduction, rape, and murder.
