92: The Clear Lake Murders

In Clear Lake, Texas, in the fall of 2002, two beautiful girls decided to befriend an outcast. Christine Paolilla suffered from Alopecia, a condition where most, if not all our hair falls out. She was lonely, and often wore garish makeup and Halloween wigs. Rachael and Tiffany helped her buy new, more flattering wigs and showed her how to properly apply makeup. But they were a year ahead of her, graduated, and Christine reunited with a boyfriend who had been jailed with a felony. Within three months, teeming with envy and jealousy, Christine and her boyfriend would do the unthinkable.
