Murders on the Appalachian Trail: Rebecca Wight, Julie Williams and Lollie Winans

Murders on the Appalachian Trail: Rebecca Wight, Julie Williams and Lollie Winans

Cassie covers two cases this week from the Appalachian trail.

In May 1988, Rebecca Wight  and Claudia Brenner were a lesbian couple followed and shot at eight times by Stephen Roy Carr on the Trail. Claudia managed to hike 4 miles to find help and identified her attacker.

On Sunday, May 19, 1996, Julianne “Julie” Williams, 24, and Lollie Winans, 26, set out with their golden retriever, Taj, to hike through the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. During their stay in the park, they were brutally murdered at a tranquil campsite. Despite suspicions that a Columbia, Maryland man was the perpetrator, the case against him fell apart.
