December 14th, 2000
One of the locations of the crime spree carried out by Reginald and Jonathan Carr, referred to as the "Wichita Massacre" or the "Wichita Horror". The brothers chose to burglarize this house at random. Upon entering, they found Brad Heyka, Heather Muller, Aaron Sander, Jason Befort and his girlfriend, a young woman identified as "Holly G.". After searching the house for valuables, the brothers forced the victims to strip naked and bound them. They proceeded to rape the two female victims and forced the victims to perform sexual acts on each other. After taking the victims in Befort's truck to ATMs to empty their bank accounts, the brothers drove the victims to the closed Stryker Soccer Complex on the outskirts of Wichita. The victims were shot execution-style in the back of their heads. The Carrs then drove Befort's truck over their bodies and left them for dead. Holly G. survived and walked naked for more than a mile in freezing weather to seek first aid and shelter at a house. After the killings, the Carrs returned to the house to ransack it for more valuables. While there, they used a golf club to beat Holly's pet dog Nikki to death. A few days prior to the events of the 14th, the brothers had robbed and wounded 23-year-old Andrew Schreiber, an assistant baseball coach. Three days later, on December 11, they shot and mortally wounded 55-year-old cellist and librarian Ann Walenta. Schreiber, Holly G., and the dying Walenta, were able to help the police identify the Carr brothers, who were caught and arrested on December 15th. The Carr brothers were sentenced to death, but remain on death row as of 2021.
