In 1995, 15-year-old Elyse Pahler left her home in Arroyo Grande, California to hang out with some kids her age and never returned. What Elyse didn't know is that three boys, Joseph Fiorella, Jacob Delashmutt, and Royce Casey had been planning to kill her for some time. The murder was shocking, but, the reasons behind the murder caused a media frenzy.

Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss the murder of Elyse Pahler. Joseph, Jacob, and Royce were into death metal and especially the band Slayer. They revealed to police that they sacrificed Elyse Pahler because they believed that the devil would make them better musicians.
