A horrific murder happened in tiny Skidmore on December of 2004. Lisa Montgomery and Bobbi Jo Stinnett met and found out that they had much in common and became good friends (Nunes 85-86). Surprisingly, Bobbi and Lisa met in an internet chat room. Bobbi was into puppy breeding and she occasionally served as a judge. Lisa lived in Kansas where her close friends were shocked about what she was talking about. Of course, Lisa shrugged it off and she sent an email to Bobbi saying that she wanted to see the puppies (Nunes 85-86). When Lisa met Bobbi Jo she had a fake name which was Darlene Fisher because she didn’t want Bobbi to know her real identity. When Lisa sent Bobbi the email she had a criminal intent on her mind. She was planning to choke Bobbi into unconsciousness and then cut open her womb and steal Bobbi’s unborn baby. When Lisa arrived at the house she threw a rope around Bobbi’s neck and choked her until she was unconscious. That is when Lisa took a knife and started to cut open Bobbi’s stomach. Lisa had to cut through skin, fat, and muscle to get to Bobbi’s uterus. Bobbi’s baby was in eight-month gestation; Lisa cut and tied the baby’s cord. Lisa stole the baby and fled to her house in Kansas. Unfortunately, Bobbi lost lots of blood and died, and her stomach looked like it had exploded. Soon after the murder, the police went to Lisa’s house and questioned her. Like all other criminals, Lisa denied everything about the murder. Police soon discovered that Lisa committed the murder because they found a rope and a knife in the back of her trunk. Lisa kept the rope and knife she used to murder Bobbi. They also found the baby in the house. Luckily, the baby was alive and well. The murder of Bobbi Jo Stinnett became and national media frenzy (Nunes 85-86). The baby was returned to Zeb Stinnett, Bobbi’s husband. He named the baby Victoria Stinnett. Lisa’s trial took place on October of 2006. She was sentenced to death. Zeb announced he was engaged to someone in 2005. He was engaged to Victoria’s babysitter. Becky (Bobbi’s mother) was terribly worried about this.
