Daily Mirror reports that Skylar was driven to a remote area where she was stabbed multiple times and her body dumped and covered in dirt.
Rachel and Sheila reportedly helped with the search for Skylar and stayed in touch with the parents of the deceased for updates.
However, six months later, Rachel confessed to the crime and led the police to Skylar's remains.

Rachel reportedly pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to up to 30 years in prison while Sheila pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and is serving a 15-year term.
According to the reports, Skylar had been close friends with Sheila until they met Rachel in High School.

Worried that their secret would be exposed, they came up with a plan to get rid of Skylar.
Speaking of his daughter's murder, Dave Neese said: “[It was] kind of a defeated feeling – at least when we didn’t know where she was there was a glimmer of hope, but now the hope’s gone.
"When they murdered her, they murdered us – it’s the saddest feeling in the world.”
May the soul of the deceased continue to rest in peace.
