Yogurt Shop Massacre

On December 6th, 1991, fresh-faced teens Jennifer Harbison and Eliza Thomas began to close up the Austin, Texas yogurt shop where they worked. They were joined by Jennifer's younger sister, Sarah, and her friend Amy Ayers. Less than an hour later all four girls were dead--apparent victims of a fire. But closer examination revealed that they had been bound and gagged, sexually assaulted, and shot execution-style. It was the most horrific crime the peaceful college town had seen since the infamous University of Texas Tower shootings in 1966.

False Confessions

With no physical evidence or eyewitnesses and more than a hundred bizarre confessions to weed through, the Austin police faced one of their toughest cases ever. The family and friends who chanted "We will not forget," would have to wait nearly eight years before Robert Springsteen IV, Michael Scott, Maurice Pierce, and Forrest Welborn--teenagers themselves at the time of the murders--were taken into custody. Intense questioning revealed how their plan to rob the yogurt shop exploded into a drug- and sex-fueled spree of rage and brutality. But their story wasn't over yet.

Strange Justice

In February 2003, several months after the final verdict had been read, a final shocking twist would rock the city of Austin once more. . .
