The expression “three’s a crowd” has a lot of truth, especially in female friendships. Two girls being friends worked, but add a third one and usually, one gets left out. When my daughter was a tween, she was the one who got pushed to the side when a third girl moved into the neighborhood and became friends with her best friend and her. I had my own experience as a teenager. Even though there were hurt feelings and arguments do to having three girls in a friendship, it didn’t result in murder as it did when Skylar Neese, Rachel Shoaf, and Sheila Eddy became friends.

Skylar a net. Meese was an only child. She was a straight a student and had dreams of becoming a criminal lawyer afterschool. She also had a part time job at Wendy's, her and Sheila, Eddie, Matt. When they were in second grade, they would meet racial Shoaff in freshman year in high school, the duo quickly became a trio. All three were only children and Sheila and Rachel were children of divorced parents. The three started doing things that would be considered out of control. Behaviors like drinking, smoking weed, and breaking curfew. They nicknamed themselves the three musketeers. People in their lives say that Sheila was the bad influence and was causing Skylar and Rachel to do those types of things is Skyler's or Rachel's friends with see them with Sheila. They would not approach because of how much they disliked her. Everything was good until a year later, sophomore year during a sleepover, everything changed.

Rachel and Sheila had sex when they got drunk. While Skylar was awkwardly watching. Later on that night, Sheila in Schuyler ended it in an argument. Skylar started threatening that she would tell everyone their secret. The dynamic of the trio started changing. Schuyler felt excluded while Sheila in Rachel became closer. Things like Sheila and Rachel dressing alike. While Skyler was not aware until she saw them. Both girls were sexually active and had boyfriends. While Skyler didn't, a classmate was quoted with saying one time sophomore year, me and Rachel were a practice for pride and prejudice and Rachel had her phone up to her ear and she was laughing. She was like, listen to this Sheila and Skyler, we're fighting, but Skyler didn't know Sheila had put her on three way calling in. Rachel was listening in. They took their arguments to social media. Skyler's Twitter account is still active and you can see tweets that say July 4th, 2012 sick of being at fucking home.

Thanks friends, love hanging out with you all to July 4th, 2012 stress will be the death of me. July 5th, 2012 you doing shit like that is why I will never completely trust you. In June, 2012 Skylar and Sheila went on a week long beach vacation at myrtle beach and they spent it arguing. Sheila had planned to have sex with Skylar so that she wouldn't threaten to tell anyone about the sexual encounter that racial and Sheila had earlier that year. However, it backfired cause Skylar turned her down when they return. Sheila told Rachel that Skyler had to die on July 5th, 2012 Skylar came home from work, kissed her parents good night and went to her room. Skyler would later get a text from Rachel and Sheila to go joy riding with them. She snuck out through her bedroom window and met up with them in a street camera. You can see Skylar going to a car and that would be the last image of her alive.

They eventually went to a secluded road and got out of the car. Sheila and Rachel counted to three and started repeatedly stabbing Skylar. Skylar tried to run but was tackled by Rachel. She was able to grab Rachel's knife and cut her ankle. However, even though she violently fought the two girls off, they still overpowered her. Her last words were why Sheila and Rachel covers Skyler's body with rocks and branches when they were unable to dig a hole after washing off, they both went home. Rachel will tweet later on that morning. Always keep your cool Skyler's. Parents reported her missing to the police the next morning when they realize she was not in her bedroom. They called Sheila to see if she had seen or talked to Skylar. She said they had talked around midnight but that she hadn't seen her. She would later call back and tell Skyler's parents that she actually did see Skylar but had dropped her off before bid night.

Rachel was off to church summer camp for two weeks. The officer assigned to the case Jessica Colebank spoke to Sheila and officer Colebank. Later on we'll say she felt that the conversation was off. She would also speak to Rachel and said that the girl seemed like she was scared to death. The officer started to suspect to the two girls in late summer, a rumor started swirling around that Skyler had overdosed from heroin at a party and that the party goers had hidden her body in fear that they would be in trouble. The police and the FBI check fist hip out and realized that there was no truth to it. The girls posted on social media messages about missing Skylar and hoping that she would return. However, their classmates started getting suspicious and the girls started getting anonymous threatening messages on social media. When the two girls for question, they would always have the same story that remained the same. Even small details. This made the police and FBI think that it was rehearsed because a story can never be 100% the same every time. After being pressured more and more, Rachel finally confessed. She would lead the police to Skyler's body after she had been missing for over six months. They were both sentenced to about 15 years to life. They will be eligible for parole when Rachel is 27 and is 33 one is she less last tweets said we really did go on three referencing Rachel and her counting to three before viciously stabbing Skylar.

A girl lost her life for no reason. Her death costs a change in the law in West Virginia. It is called Skyler's law. Before, if a child under 18 would disappear after leaving on their own, the amber alert would not be activated. The new addendum now states that regardless of how the child disappeared, even if she left on her own, the amber alert still needs to be issued. Hopefully lives can be saved by Skyler's law and bring some light into the death of an innocent teenage girl. Should the two girls be allowed to be let out of jail when they are in their late twenties early thirties I keep going back and forth if they should or not. If they do, hopefully they learn healthy relationships and if they don't want to be friends with someone, they will allow that person to remain alive.
Speaker 3:

Yeah.

Well what did you think? Teenagers tend to not think of what's in front of them and they feel as though the moment that they're living in will never pass. And I feel like if Sheila in Rachel with a taken a step back, they could have ended the friendship with Skylar and even as Skylar spread that rumor, it wouldn't have been a big deal in the long run, I guess as an adult use tend to start realizing that and you'd, Skyler was still be alive. So that's one thing that I do want to say to my teenage listeners and even some adults out there. Sometimes it's good to just close your eyes and see if in five years this will matter. Majority of the time it won't and you won't make mistakes or have someone lose their life over something that won't matter in five years. That's this week's episode of the female killers podcast. Please subscribe, leave me a comment. It would be great if you could also suggest a female killer that hasn't been featured on the show. I would love to hear from you and thanks again. I'll see you next week.
