Katie Sepich, 22 years-old
.......................................................................................................

Raped, murdered and set on fire: August 31, 2003


Location: Las Cruces, New Mexico

Case: On the night of August 30, 2003, Katie Sepich, a recent graduate of New Mexico State University with plans to return in the fall for her MBA, went to a party with friends. Around 3am she got into a fight with her boyfriend and stormed out of the party. Unable to find her purse, she set out for home without her house keys, walking alone through an idyllic, suburban neighborhood. She reached her house and, apparently, tried to get inside by climbing through a window. As she tried to remove the window screen, she encountered a killer. Investigators found evidence of a violent struggle behind a row of bushes. Without waking next-door neighbors and a roommate sleeping inside the house, Katie was brutally beaten, raped and murdered in her own front yard. Her body was then dumped in the desert and set on fire.
