Before Christine Paolilla received a makeover from her two new friends - Tiffany Rowell and Rachael Koloroutis - fellow students at Clear Lake High School in Texas teased her. As Paolilla’s new friendship blossomed with the teens, peers began to accept her, despite her previous appearance. Paolilla - who received the student body title “Miss Irresistible” - murdered her friends and two others on July 18, 2003. With the help of her then-boyfriend, Chris Snider, Paolilla shot and beat the four teens. Police had no viable leads.
In 2006, Houston authorities received a tip from Paolilla’s former friend, and the police apprehended her in San Antonio. Paolilla, a substance-abuser tried to refute statements made under duress. The courts charged her, and Paolilla faced life in prison - narrowly averting the death penalty because she was 17 at the time of the attacks. The case has spurred features on half a dozen docuseries, yet the public still questions why Paolilla turned on her friends. While Paolilla later maintained her intention was to rob Rowell’s home, theorists speculate jealousy motivated the teen.
Although Paolilla has filed multiple appeals in an attempt to alter her sentence, she is not eligible for parole until 2046 - after having served 35 years in prison.
