CaseEdit

Details: Colleen Ritter began dating Richard Church, but after a few months, she realized that he was too possessive and she asked if they could stay friends. However, he did not want to lose her and began stalking her. On August 21, 1988, he broke into her home and stabbed her parents, Raymond and Ruth Ann Ritter, to death. He went up the stairs and stabbed her brother, Michael. He then stabbed her, who ran out of the house screaming trying to escape him. He then fled as neighbors arrived to help her, and was last seen leaving his mother's house in his car, which was later found abandoned. Colleen and Michael survived, but she will not feel safe until Richard is caught.
