12-year-old Ashley Pond disappeared on her way to school in January of 2002. Two months later, one of her best friends, Miranda Gaddis. also turned up missing on her way to school. During their short lives, both girls had experienced abuse and the police had a long list of suspects to go through. It wasn’t until months later, in August, that the girls’ bodies were found and police were able to piece together the last days of their young lives.
