Hi, Crime Junkies. I'm your host, Ashley Flowers, and I'm Brett.


In the story I want to tell you today, takes us deep into the heart of darkness, hiding


under a picturesque small town in the dead of winter. When two women are brutally murdered


on the same night, their deaths leave behind a mystery as cold as ice, and for decades,


a killer is allowed to walk free. That is, until a mysterious clue helps to finally bring


him to justice. This is the story of Barbara Oberholzer and Annette Schnee.


A little before 6.30pm on the evening of January 6, 1982, a phone in Alma, Colorado, rings.

dinner. He's pulling out all the stops here and he's sliding some candles, getting out the nice


plays, doing everything he can to make Bobby Joe feel amazing. 7.30 comes and goes, and then 8


o'clock with no sign of Bobby Joe. Eventually, Jeff sits down and before he knows what's happening,
