Shelia Eddy Pleads 'Not Guilty' to 'BFF' Murder Charge
She's only 16, fresh-faced, seemingly the essence of innocence. But the crime she's accused of committing is bone chilling.
Shelia Eddy allegedly stabbed to death her best friend—because she no longer wanted to be her 'bff'—'her best friend forever.'
Now, the victim's father has a message for this teen: "Rot in Hell."
Shelia and Sklyar Neese had known each other since they were kids.
"They were inseparable. Every weekend, either Skylar was at her house, or she was at our house," said Skylar's mother.
Sixteen-year-old Skylar was a straight-'A' honor student in Morgantown, West Virginia when she disappeared one night.
Her best friend Shelia helped go door-to-door during the search.
"Shelia would knock on doors and say, have you seen this girl?" said Skylar's mother.
Skylar's father said, "The whole time, we're comforting Sheila as we would a sibling telling her it's gonna be okay, don't worry about it, we're gonna get her home and the whole time she's going 'God I hope so, I miss her so much.'"
Shelia even posted a tweet saying: "Skylar, you'll always be my best friend. I miss you more than you could ever know."
But six months after Skylar's baffling disappearance, another 16-year-old friend, Rachel Shoaf, came forward with a horrific tale.
Rachel told cops that she and Shelia had driven the unsuspecting Skylar to a remote spot and then stabbed Skylar to death because they no longer wanted to be her friend.
Court documents said police were stunned at Rachel Shoaf's confession.
How two girls could allegedly turn on their dear friend over such a trivial matter is something that brings Skylar's mom to tears, "I can't answer that," she said.
Rachel Shoaf pled guilty to murder.
At Shelia's arraignment hearing Tuesday, she was charged as an adult. She pleaded not guilty to murder.
"There are special places in hell for people like the both of them and they're going to get exactly what they deserve—a long time in prison to think about what they've done," remarked Skylar's father.
