Crime Scene Location in Pocatello, Idaho, United States.
This is the house where Cassie Jo Stoddart was murdered.
It is situated on West Whispering Cliffs Drive, which lies to the north of Pocatello, Idaho.
At the time of the murder, it was owned by Cassie'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 making plans to murder 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 and her boyfriend instead.
In September of 2006, Cassie Jo Stoddart's aunt and uncle asked her to stay over at their place while they were away.
Because the Contreras family had two dogs and three cats, they needed someone to look after them and feed them while they were out of town.
Draper and Adamcik were friends with Stoddart and her boyfriend, Matt Beckham. As a result, they knew that the couple had plans to hang out at the Contreras residence by themselves.
When Draper and Adamcik realized that their initial target wasn't home, they callously decided to target their friends 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 were leaving 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 their car within walking distance of the house. They then crept into the basement via the unlocked door.
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.
After the boys realized that their friends weren't taking the bait, they decided to switch the breaker back on again.
When the power returned, Stoddart was still a bit 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 sleep 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 unattended.
The murder of Cassie Jo Stoddart.
When Cassie'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.
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.
After realizing that their story was 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.
