Birth: Jul. 17, 1968
Death: May 15, 1981

Inside the dense brush and trees on an early Vermont spring day in 1981, Melissa Walbridge and Meghan O'Rourke, 12-year-old friends, were repeatedly raped, tortured, stabbed and shot with a BB gun by two assailants who had been stalking them. Melissa died beneath a musty mattress. Meghan survived to assist police in putting her attackers Jamie Savage, 15, and Louie Hamlin, 16, behind bars. Savage served no more than 3 years because law demanded he be tried in juvenile court.
