Amy Robinson's disability didn't keep her from obtaining a job and living on her own, but her trusting nature led to her mysterious disappearance that went unsolved until an unlikely informant stepped forward to reveal shocking truths to the authorities. If you're a fan of cold case stories with insane twist endings, this is one for the record books.
Amy Robinson struggled with a mental disability her entire life. However, that did not stop her from growing up and living a fairly functional life. She did not let her developmental disorder prevent her from attaining comfort and independence. Amy was one of the lucky ones who was able to accomplish goals some might take for granted, despite her condition.
Amy suffered from a condition known as Turner syndrome. It is a chromosomal condition which affects the development of certain body parts in females. The most common physical attribute of Turner Syndrome is the person having a short stature. The condition may also lead to lack of puberty or loss of ovarian function. Amy had another unfortunate symptom.
Most girls who grow up with Turner syndrome typically have normal brain function and intelligence. Unfortunately, Amy's case of Turner syndrome also played a detrimental role in her mental capabilities. Fortunately, it did not change Amy's positive disposition and general happiness. Amy did her best to live like anyone else.
When Amy turned 19, she did what any teen would do as they transition into adulthood. Amy found a place to live and a job bagging groceries at her local grocery store. With no driver's license, Amy rode her bike to and from work. Amy usually showed up to work on time, until one fateful day.
Amy missed her typical start time and her employers began to worry. They phoned her house to see if she had simply neglected to call in sick, but unfortunately, Amy was missing. The authorities were called and the investigation into her disappearance commenced. The entire town joined the search for the missing teen.
Police investigators notified the media about Amy's disappearance. Alerts were sent out all over the region. Amy's parents, family, and friends were relentless in their search. There were no witnesses and no evidence. Just when all hope was thought to be lost, an unlikely source stepped forward with a shocking secret.
A young unnamed man spoke of his step-brother Michael who had admitted to recently killing someone. Michael Wayne Hall had also worked at the same grocery store as Amy. Hall was recently fired from the store, along with his friend, Robert Neville Jr., who had a repulsive criminal history as well.
Robert Neville Jr. was a known criminal. He had accumulated a long list of despicable crimes in his young life. Not only was he a violent person, but his repertoire also included cases of sexual misconduct and even cruelty to animals. After some questioning, the dark truth about what happened to Amy came to light.
Neville and Hall knew Amy rode her bike to work. The two men pulled up to Amy on her way to work to ask if she wanted a ride. Amy recognized them from the grocery store and decided to take them up on the offer. She thought they were simply performing a good deed.
The disgusting human beings drove Amy to an open field in Fort Worth. Michael Hall shot Amy in the back of the leg with a pellet gun before hitting her with a crossbow. Neville grabbed a .22 caliber rifle from the trunk and discharged the weapon towards Amy. After letting her suffer and bleed, Hall put a kill shot in Amy's head. The men admitted to killing Amy because it was "easy" and she was a "minority." The two white supremacists were found guilty and sentenced to death.
