This auction is for a letter from Tennessee murderess Ms. Christa Gail Pike. On 1/12/1995 Ms. Pike, with accomplices Mr. Tadaryl Shipp and Ms. Shadolla Peterson, lured a fellow Knoxville Job Corps student to a secluded area where she was tortured and murdered. Pike was 18-years-old at the time. The jealousy was the motive and the torture murder was riddled with Satanic underlines. At the time of her arrest Pike was said to be in possession of a part of her victim's skull, presumably kept as some sort of trophy, and a copy of Dr. Anton Szandor LaVey's The Satanic Bible. Pike would be sentenced to death 3/22/1996 for her role in the crime, becoming the youngest woman condemned in the United States since the reinstatement of capital punishment. During her incarceration Pike has been a model prisoner. In 2001 Pike and Lillelid Murder Ms.Natasha Cornett attempted to kill a fellow inmate, earning Pike an additional conviction of attempted first degree murder. Then, in 2012, an escape plan was foiled by a joint law enforcement investigation. Pike was being aided in her plans to escape by Tennessee correctional officer Justin Heflin and a New Jersey man who would often visit her at the prison. Due to Pike's very young age, attractive looks, seemingly innocent appearance, and the extreme violent nature of her crime, the case has been the subject of several true crime literary works and television media.
