The house where Cassie Jo Stoddart was murdered
Crime Scene Location in Pocatello, Idaho
This is the house where Cassie Jo Stoddart was murdered.
It is located at 11372 W Whispering Cliffs Drive in Pocatello, Idaho.
At the time of the murder, it was owned by Stoddart's aunt and uncle, Allison and Frank Contreras. However, they sold the property in 2015.
Brian Draper and Torey Adamcik
At some point in 2006, two teenage boys named Brian Draper and Torey Adamcik started plotting the murder of one of their classmates from Pocatello High School.
In the lead-up to the crime, they purchased masks, gloves, dark clothes, and knives. They also recorded home video footage of themselves talking about their plans.
The pair were partially inspired by the slasher film series Scream. In one of their video tapes, they stated that they wanted to "make history."
On the evening of September 22nd, 2006, Draper and Adamcik snooped around their target's house "a couple of times." However, they soon realized that she wasn't home.
They decide to target Cassie Jo Stoddart and her boyfriend
In September 2006, Cassie Jo Stoddart's aunt and uncle asked her to stay over at their place while they were away.
The Contreras family had two dogs and three cats, which needed to be looked after and fed while they were out of town.
Draper and Adamcik were friends with Stoddart and her boyfriend, Matt Beckham. Consequently, they knew that the couple had plans to hang out at the Contreras residence by themselves.
When the pair realized that their initial target wasn't home, they callously decided to target Stoddart and Beckham instead.
In one of the video tapes, Draper stated the following:
"She's not at home, so we're going to go to that church over there and call a girl and a guy named Cassie and Matt. They're our friends, but we have to make sacrifices."
When Draper and Adamcik arrived at this property on Whispering Cliffs, the four teenagers hung out together and watched a movie. Stoddart also gave them a tour of the house.
An hour or two later, Draper and Adamcik claimed that they needed to leave because they had tickets to see a film at a local movie theater.
However, this was a lie.
Unbeknownst to Stoddart and Beckham, one of the boys had secretly unlocked an exterior door that provided access to the basement.
The boys return to the house
Not long after leaving, Draper and Adamcik returned to the neighborhood and parked within walking distance of the house. They then crept into the basement via the door that they had left unlocked.
Once they were inside, they turned off the circuit breaker, hoping that the power outage would lure Stoddart and Beckham down into the basement.
However, this plan failed, as the couple remained upstairs.
When the boys realized that their friends weren't taking the bait, they decided to switch the breaker back on again.
Although the power returned, Stoddart remained spooked. Her boyfriend also noticed that one of the Contreras' dogs seemed to be growling at the basement door.
As a result, he asked his mother if he could stay the night with her.
Although Beckham's mother said no, she did tell him that Stoddart could stay over at their house if she wanted to. Unfortunately, the 16-year-old declined this offer, as she didn't want to leave her aunt's pets by themselves.
The murder of Cassie Jo Stoddart
When Stoddart's boyfriend finally left the house, the two boys attempted to use the circuit breaker ploy again. However, the result was the same, as she refused to venture down into the dark basement by herself.
At that point, Draper and Adamcik seemingly lost their patience and decided to barge into the living room, where they brutally attacked her with knives.
During the attack, the high school student received a dozen fatal stab wounds and died at the scene. Her body was found on the morning of September 24th, when the Contreras family returned home from their trip.
Five days after the murder, the two boys were arrested. During questioning, they quickly folded after the police started quizzing them about which film they had seen at the movie theater.
Realizing that their story was quickly falling apart, Draper and Adamcik attempted to pin the blame on each other.
However, the police did not fall for this. Subsequently, they were both charged with murder.
Roughly one year later, the two teenagers were found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.
