Murder Victim. Victim of the 1974 Hi-Fi Shop Murders in Ogden, Utah. On April 22, 1974, Dale Pierre, William Andrews, and Keith Roberts, all airmen in the US Air Force, entered the Hi-Fi Shop in Ogden, Utah. Pierre and Andrews forced five people (two women and three men) to drink Liquid Drano. Pierre then shot them in the head. Two of the victims, Cortney Naisbitt and Orren Walker survived. Carol Naisbitt (Cortney's mother), Stanley Walker (Orren's son) and Michelle Ansley (who was also raped by Pierre) died. Roberts was convicted only of armed robbery (he had no role in - or apparently knowledge of - Pierre and Andrews' plan to murder the victims) and was paroled in 1987. Cortney Naisbitt's heroic fight for survival was the basis for Gary Kinder's 1982 best-seller "Victim: the Other Side of Murder" which was made into the 1991 TV movie "Aftermath: A Test of Love" starring Richard Chamberlain.
