Hi, crime junkies. I'm your host Ashley Flowers and I'm Brett and today's story is a terrifying one


One that if you're a parent will have you double checking your windows before you put your kids to bed tonight


Because it's the story of an eight-year-old girl named Kirsten Hatfield who was taken from her own bedroom in the middle of the night


With her mom just in the next room and then she was never seen again


Our story begins in Midwest City, Oklahoma in May of 1997


Kirsten lived in a small home with her mother Sharon and her three-year-old sister Faith


Faith and Kirsten actually shared a room and a bed which reminds me so much of me and my little sister when we were like


five and three we shared a room together and a big queen-sized bed and I always felt so


safe like yes, she was smaller than me. She was a little kid. We were both little kids. Yeah, but you have someone there


Yeah, there was another person there with me someone who would also hear the things go bump in the night


But it was okay because nothing bad could happen if we were together


But unfortunately looking back I now know that's not the case on the evening of May 13th


A Tuesday night Sharon put her two girls to bed around 9 9 30 which is pretty usual for a weeknight


Normally she might read or tell stories, but on this night little Faith was already asleep and she didn't win away her


So Sharon just laid alongside Kirsten for a little while told her that she loved her and then left the room


Now when she left she pulled the door behind her but didn't close it all the way


She always left just a slight opening in case the two little ones needed her in the middle of the night


Around 3 a.m. That night Sharon was startled awake by some noises coming from the girls room


At first she figured maybe Faith was just talking in her sleep or maybe one of them was woken up


So she gets out of bed and she starts walking down the hallway


But by the time she makes it to the door all the commotion has stopped


They both must have been back asleep
