In 2003, eighteen year old freshman, Katie Autry, was raped, beaten and set on fire in her dorm room at Western Kentucky University. Two suspects would soon emerge. One white, from a wealthy family. The other mixed race, from a poor family. The case would consume WKU, Bowling Green and the rest of Kentucky, with loyalties on both sides. To this day, many locals believe that one of those boys got away with murder.
