It's a rough one this week, peeps and creeps! Kristin tells Mogab all about the Austin Yogurt Shop Murders, where 4 teenage girls were murdered In 1991. Jennifer Harbison and Eliza Thomas were 17 years old, working the closing shift at the I Can't Believe It's Yogurt shop. Jennifer's sister, Sarah Harbison, 15, and Amy Ayers, 13, were hanging out at the shop until Jennifer got off work and could take them all home. Before that could happen, the 4 girls were shot execution style and then set on fire In what was described by the lead detective as "wholesale carnage". To make matters worse, the case turned cold for 8 years until the police narrowed In on 4 teenage suspects and attempted to prosecute them without any evidence. The case remains unsolved to this day.
