This pair was called the teenage Thelma and Louise by one newspaper. Yes, they did flee in a pickup truck after a murder. .. but the details are a bit more gruesome than that.
Holly’s mother was a petty criminal who was in and out of jail, so Holly was raised by her grandparents.
Sandy met Holly when they were 13. A note online from Holly to Sandy reads:
"I’m glad I found U. God sent U to me (I don’t care what it says about gay people in the Bible).”
The girls started dating, though Holly’s grandparents forbade it. Small-town Georgia was, unsurprisingly, hostile to the girls. One account of their story says the girls were regularly called derogatory names from moving cars and picked on. The two started skipping school regularly hanging out in the woods together, smoking pot and cuddling. They also did harder drugs -- speed and meth -- and ran away once but came back after four days of sleeping in a car.
When Holly fought with her grandmother she told her over and over that she would kill her. This was something that she said often, and would talk about to Sandy, according to some reports online.
