Although only 28, Lola Katherine “Kathy” Fry was in the process of changing her life when she disappeared. She’d stopped dancing at Indianapolis bars like PT’s and Brad’s Gold Club where she was involved in a lawsuit and started back to school. She’d even decided to relocate in order to be near one of her sisters. November 13, 1993 was supposed to be her last night in town before moving to Fort Wayne.
She never arrived.
Kathy was last seen that same night, partying with five men. According to information given to qwwwpolice in a 2000 interview, the group was doing prescription medication, cocaine, and marijuana when Kathy suddenly passed out, possibly from a drug overdose. The men she was with wrapped her unconscious body in a blanket and took her to a waiting car. She was never seen again. Also missing is Kathy’s car, a red and black 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse with personalized license plates reading “LOLA.”

Claim to Infamy: Four young employees, Daniel Davis (16), Mark Flemmonds (16), Jayne Friedt (20), and Ruth Ellen Shelton (17), were abducted from the restaurant when they were closing up for the night. Their bodies were discovered two days later in a wooded lot in Johnson County. Ruth Ellen and Daniel had been shot to death, while Jayne had been stabbed twice in the heart with a hunting knife. Mark died choking on his own blood after receiving a blow to the head. Although robbery is the presumed motive, less than $600 was taken from the registers. Additional money in the girls’ purses and the store safe was left untouched.
Current Status: Unsolved
Random Disturbing Fact: Daniel was new to the Friday night crew. The girl who’d previously worked that shift quit the week before, and he took her spot. It was his first ─ and last ─ Friday night working until close.

Claim to Infamy: On September 7, 1997, Overstreet abducted, raped, and murdered 18-yr-old college student Kelly Eckart. Her partially-nude body was found four days later in a ravine at Camp Atterbury.
Indiana Connection: A native of Boggstown, Kelly had just finished her shift at the Franklin WalMart when Overstreet kidnapped her. According to statements given to police, he took her to the Franklin Days Inn motel before transporting her to Camp Atterbury with the help of his brother, Scott A. Overstreet. Scott Overstreet has never been charged in connection with this crime.
Current Status: Sitting on Indiana’s Death Row in Michigan City
Random Disturbing Fact: Overstreet ‘saw’ demons and other hallucinations as a child, but his mother never sought help for him. Mental illness continued to plague him through adulthood; he served only three months in the Marines before being discharged on those grounds.
