Early one November morning, Kara Borden, a pretty fourteen year old, was caught by her parents as she snuck into their Lancaster County, Pennsylvania home. She confessed to spending the night with eighteen-year-old David Ludwig, and her parents-evangelicals who had home-schooled their daughter-were beside themselves with anger. They summoned David to talk immediately. But David arrived to the house with another plan in mind... Two hours later, police arrived at the Borden residence to find that Mr. and Mrs. Borden had been shot dead-and David and Kara were nowhere to be found. Was Kara a hostage? Or an accomplice? A manhunt began that would end hundreds of miles away in a highly televised speed chase. The two lovers were eventually captured...?nd one would spend a life behind bars. This is the true story of a crime set in a closely-guarded world of fundamentalist belief, and the tale of a God-fearing teenager whose DESIRE TURNED DEADLY. With 8 pages of startling photos!
