Anna Brackett was killed by Shirley Katherine Wolf, 14; and Cindy Lee Collier, 15 they knocked on the door of a condo and asked Anna Bracket, an eighty-five- year-old woman for a glass of water and to use the phone. They had tried a couple of other units, but she was the first who let them in and was alone. They brutally stabbed her twenty-eight times, first with a paring knife, which bent, and then with a butcher knife. They wanted her car for a ride, although they didn't have what you would call any clear plan of what they would do with it. In fact, they took the wrong keys and just left when they couldn't start the car. One of them wrote in her diary, "Today Cindy and I ran away and killed an old lady. It was lots of fun." The girls had been seen and were arrested that night. There was absolutely no detectable remorse. One tried to lie about it for a while, but the other confessed immediately.
