Skylar Neese murder: Classmate pleads guilty to stabbing death

Skylar Neese murder: Classmate pleads guilty to stabbing death, The truth about Skylar Neese's disappearance will soon come out. One of her classmates, 16-year-old Rachel Shoaf, has admitted to stabbing her friend to death and leaving her body in a ditch 20 miles from her Star City, WV home. Charges are pending against another teen who may have also been involved.

Skylar, also 16, was last seen on a July 6th surveillance video, leaving her family's apartment and getting in a car. The driver of that car (presumably Shoaf or the other suspect) was previouly adamant that she had returned her friend to her home, dropping her off down the street so she wouldn't wake her parents while sneaking back in. But there is no video of her coming back home. Her body was discovered on January 16th.

Rachel Shoaf plead guilty to second-degree murder, for which a 20-year sentence will be the state's recommendation. However, because she's really just a kid, the defense will ask that she be sentenced as a juvenile, which would carry a lighter sentence. That seems somehow wrong. She's not that far from being an adult, she committed an adult crime, why should she receive a light sentence? She murdered one of her closest friends, then lied to the girls' parents, giving them false hope for 6 months that their daughter may be coming home. Whatever her sentence, Rachel Shoaf's got it coming to her.

Dave Neese, Skylar's father, just wants to know why this happened to his daughter, saying there must be another reason than just being mad at each other. What reason will the two teens give for brutally murdering their friend? Soon that information may be known, as per the plea agreement Shoaf must “offer truthful and forthright testimony in any subsequent proceeding deemed necessary.”

You may recall that Skylar was presumed a runaway, and there was very little media attention focused on her disappearance. Hopefully there will now be justice served.
