17-year-old cheerleader, Carla Walker, and her boyfriend Rodney McCoy, quarterback on the football team, are the poster couple for high school sweethearts.  The couple attends a Valentine’s dance at Western Hills High School in Forth Worth, Texas.

After the dance, the couple hangs out with friends and then stops quickly at Ridglea bowling alley for a bathroom break, but when they get back in the car,  the unthinkable happens. Carla is in the passenger’s seat when someone jerks the door open. Carla is pulled out of the car.

Rodney McCoy is pistol-whipped and knocked unconscious.  When McCoy wakes up, Walker is gone and McCoy is bleeding from his head. Carla Walker’s partially nude body is discovered three days later stuffed in a storm drain. Carla had been beaten, raped, strangled, tortured, and drugged. The case goes unsolved for more than 45 years.
