Skylar Neese, Shelia Eddy, and Rachel Shoaf were high school sophomores living in Morgantown, West Virginia, whose friendship seemed to be made to last. They were young, beautiful, and often envied by others.
They loved doing everything together – hanging out with others in their group and posting lots of selfies on Twitter and Facebook.
Gradually, Shelia and Rachel’s relationship with Skylar fell apart. However, when Skylar accidentally discovered a secret her former best friends were keeping- evil plans started forming. It led Shelia and Rachel to dangerously conspire against Skylar.
On July 6, 2012, Skylar’s parents discovered that she was missing. The search for her went on for months, but no one was giving up. Six months later, Rachel Shoaf revealed the details of what really happened to Skylar.
A “bubbly person” whose parents couldn’t be prouder of
Skylar Neese was a 16-year-old girl whose parents could never be prouder of. She was the only child of Dave and Mary Neese, and even at a young age, she had already shown great potential. Skylar had a 4.0-grade point average and was working part-time at a fast food restaurant, all while keeping an active social life. Like most teenagers, she regularly went out with friends and attended a few parties. According to her parents, their daughter was a “bubbly person” who always went out of her way to please her friends.
Like a part of the family
Skylar Neese and Shelia Eddy were best friends since they were 8. According to Dave, Shelia was a part of their family. They even treated her as their own daughter. In 2010, Shelia Eddy became friends with Rachel Shoaf. That same year, Shelia moved to the University High School where Skylar was attending. Shelia then introduced Skylar to Rachel and eventually, all three girls became inseparable.
