Nineteen year old Charles -- weather and his fourteen year old girlfriend go on a killing spree across the great plains and eleven done.
Do you believe she was ever being held hostage.
Why use this story still making headlines.
I'm Oliver North I'm Claudia Cowan and I'm heartfelt -- that's next on fox files.
When you see the women fight.
The use of -- job.
My goal is for myself accomplishments -- as hard -- I -- there's nothing.
And number one thing and I've learned.
Would you go to remains of products in general -- it does not have any here.
You -- seat -- the Ultimate Fighting Championship has come a long way since its inception in 1993.
What it was but in 2001.
By Dana White.
President of the US seat and his partners that we're teed -- Brothers Dana congratulations on for a show that's got a -- good.
Thank you very much integration we're very excited clock styles talked to Dana about his success you took over this couple.
-- when it was in a serious financial hole I called my partners and -- You know I think you have she's in trouble I think we can -- this this -- be interesting and a month later we on the company how much as -- -- support we bought for two million dollars.
And how much is it worth today a lot more than two and let them.
More than two million -- -- -- statement.
Today the USC brings in an estimated 600 million dollars a year.
It is worth over an estimated two billion dollars recently they signed a lucrative broadcast deals with fox sports -- -- the biggest sports franchise on earth the most valuable sports franchise on earth -- 175 countries.
Point three different languages in over a -- homes worldwide.
And -- the -- didn't provide around the world this sport works everywhere because I don't care what color you are.
What country come from what language you speak.
We're all human beings and findings in our DNA we get it and we like we keep talking about mixed martial arts what is that the first UFC.
Happened because they wanted to answer the -- question which fighting style was the best we're karate -- -- -- -- -- a boxer -- a wrestler and the answer that age -- question ended up being no one style was the best he had to have a little piece of everything to be complete fighter you're talking about boxing kick boxing.
-- -- -- Jujitsu and any other martial -- thrown in there.
Recently women have been brought into the USC family where they're held to the same rules and standards as the men.
But a few years ago DMZ sports -- Dana saying this.
Number I'm never gonna hurt -- wouldn't immediately hit it from oh wait that was you know.
Love my fans not only did I say they won't fight here I stamp the -- on -- and he stupid because.
Because I saw -- fight one time in it was a mismatch between two women.
And it completely.
Turned me off.
To women fighting them -- it's just a testament now how.
How -- sport has evolved that we can actually create an entire division in the UNC.
So was it sexist statement and your -- and now everybody thought of -- and everybody would accuse me of that.
But it was not sexist now far from along the furthest thing from that.
And on -- by an engine of players that want to train for me but they're not -- -- anything like.
Hot file sat down with plenty of USC's most dominating women fighters and -- 135.
Pound bantamweight champion.
-- -- -- She -- of record of seven you know with all wins coming by armed guards in the first round -- entirely -- when I -- -- -- She is one of the most.
Fierce competitors that I've ever met -- ever.
In boxing or mixed martial arts.
That sense of competitiveness started at a young age.
Growing up in North Dakota.
Rhonda was a swimmer when she moved to LA.
She took -- -- Don't you repeat that all I love movement in those schools over there saying man -- such a nice beneath the Ghali and I'd like.
I isn't it.
Judo -- really forced me to be one on one with a kid and I didn't have the same thing it was forced me to be social.
So -- bring -- to the Olympic stage where she was part of the 2004.
And 2008 teens.
She failed to medal in 2004.
And was disillusioned by the life of an Olympian and so.
After the 2004 Olympics you ran away from home understands it pretty much came down to.
You know everything that I did every single day it was dictated by actress and the week after attorney Tina is packed up all my stuff that is -- -- Across the country.
We -- -- the story about it being college or something.
While it upstate New York -- still maintained a rigorous training regiment.
They stayed away from the restrictive life the coaches and supervise practices.
I think that moving to Chicago for a while I -- know we'll coaches don't really pushing me.
So I ended up having like one -- -- -- ever had won a World Cup and we had an American woman to then nine years and as actually making a little bit of money.
Fortunately she had a change of heart.
And decided to give the Olympics one were trying.
And I want went by a second time around bronze is definitely way better than me nothing at all or eight.
No -- -- end -- science.
Says this is very bumpy bumpy path.
That won't be -- led runs into being the first American to medal in judo.
And along the -- she picked up the taste for mixed martial arts.
And what would you say.
I -- it -- you routinely started getting into watching me they would have little fight through it all went together and watched I fell on.
And I remember one of was.
-- Can't -- -- at night and -- I can beat those girls.
Could be doing right now but I I didn't wanna see it because I was in the middle of the Olympic Ron and everyone would turn mean calling -- Couldn't -- -- have gotten a single crews from getting hit and a bag.
Coming up meet the one fighter and marine.
Who changed that.
How do you feel in general about women being at part of the UFC.
He's great you know I have looked -- -- -- he has them opportunities that that that man do I mean.
There's there's this is -- I was looking for such a direction once they had disciplined.
Liz girl real -- car mood she was born in Louisiana.
-- grew up in Japan where she decided to follow in her father's footsteps and join the military.
I knew that if I was -- Do any branch of the military it had to be the best of the best.
And the most challenging one.
And the marine corps of course is what penalize me everything is looking for how many tours of duty to do -- -- -- In what years were you -- 20062008.
Months or is it time and.
During her last tour in Iraq.
Her friends introduced -- -- hard hitting world of mixed martial arts.
As a you know I like it I don't just focus on one -- -- sorry everything to be the best fighter being gotten gains and that involved in something really content is a game -- that I -- Push myself to.
This machine there's a -- that she has that other means don't possess and then she turned back here on -- and everybody in the past.
So when did you first take your official lesson.
I first official lesson was when I got back from Iraq our first day ever in it in -- sparring bloodied up nose hair pulled out tank top Britt Robertson just.
Beaten up and I was like.
But I'm what I wanna do business goes to gone and but just to confirm it was with another girl correct no one is only -- holy smokes they should be no mercy no not at all.
Grown men that are professionals and and -- -- come in and she serves them like -- children.
And -- everybody -- within six months she became a problem.
And -- then.
She is fighting for the world tight so she's.
On February 23 2013.
-- is hard work paid off.
And she became a part of history.
She earned the chance to fight the champion Rhonda -- in the first ever women's title points.
And she'd be doing is as the UFC's first openly gay fighter.
Chevron -- that she -- in the show every woman every woman what happened.
Except on Tuesday -- haven't gotten a single -- and getting hit and -- by not valid.
I didn't get Bristol mountain is currently -- in the cross various about that.
How did you feel.
When you didn't come out with a W I did the best I can deal.
Place I wanted more and of course went on to win that was my dream I wasn't one of those people going in every -- -- just -- -- -- no I wanted to make history.
I -- come out there with the title and not having that was kind of a check for me.
But it being worked out much harder -- -- is a good fight and have a great I would not be surprised -- you -- another stimulus together and came back for more.

And when we first met -- geography is much more complicated the demographics -- much more complicated and frankly the mission is more complicated after Iraq.
Stanford moved up and right to four star general.
And October 2012.
President Obama nominated him to leave the US and NATO effort in Afghanistan.
At his confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill who spoke about the support he receives on the home front -- -- my wife Carolyn I'm very fortunate to have her love and support.

She's an unquestionably the most valuable player and don't professionally.
We were introduced by my roommate.
Who had met him through.
Graduate school prep class and then she introduced me to -- him because she knew we had grown up in the same area.
Both Joseph -- -- and his wife -- have deep roots in the Boston area.

The couple met in Washington DC he was a young marine captain as for -- -- come down here and was working as a physical therapist.
I was taken a course.
George Washington University no -- -- invited me over for dinner and so three of us had been -- once said and I.
I think about two weeks later restaurant date and when you brought him home of the first times that I am gonna marry the spring what was your friendly -- He was a local boy -- gone to the same high school graduate from high school with my brother.
So he was definitely known quantity -- then.
About two years when we're married Joan Allen doesn't begin -- -- together serving our nation.

His father retired from Boston Police after 49 year.
History from the frying pan Marine -- in the fireman policeman.
You're -- your to my father was a World War II vet served in the army.
And that's it's kind of.
The president announced that all US combat forces would withdraw from Afghanistan by -- fourteen.
This process of transition will be complete now the weight of carrying out that decision.
Is squarely on the shoulders of general Don for an 18 June this year he delivered an important milestone.
What that meant was -- to ten years of coalition leading combat operations here in Afghanistan.
We've known supporting up into the Atkins for -- done for the great challenge today is how to train advise and assist.
The Afghan security forces as they carry them fight this enemy all on the road we've grown force.
-- from the very small force.
Who almost three and 52000.
Which is the size of the Afghan security forces.
We have -- -- casualty evacuation order has -- -- training missions carried out by Afghans were trained by American advisors.
The commander of the African Airways gave me his assessment means isn't talking very happy from all our advisors especially from our romantic and I advised that we've made great strides.
And I've seen that myself after emissions in the -- fourteen in the Afghan forces will be -- deal with the threat.
Inside of Afghanistan comfort is also responsible for what happens to millions of pieces of US equipment.
Now -- the war zone.
It's return or retrograde.
Is estimated -- up to six billion dollars.
There's a lot of concern a lot of very expensive stuff is gonna be left behind that the Afghans can't use.
Fact or fiction complete fiction the only equipment they're leaving behind his equipment the Afghans can actually use that doesn't mean this is -- A real challenge it is a lot of it has to do -- what kind of equipment.
-- and also what's the size of the force.
To help support we're gonna continue to provide commitment to the Afghan people.
After -- -- -- the 2014 to ten years ago on another hot and dusty battlefield.
-- Joseph -- for told me what motivates him.
That commitment to those with whom he served us.
I would wanna be remembered that -- needed -- for I was doing the right things for the right reasons I admire the way that my husband has been able to.
Be faithful to the people he serves when I am very proud -- server.
-- extraordinarily over pools I have never seen two.
My -- understand the military.
The so many of the -- extended -- -- -- is well aware of the sacrifices made by America's military billions calling for many many years you served.
All kinds of the -- it was little insignificant.
It was absorb -- I think he sent a very good job of trying to be a father being -- husband.
Be a good marine and a good citizen in this country.
One of your division commanders -- -- happens to be from.
Your neighborhood back in Massachusetts he described view is one of the best the best of Quincy Massachusetts is this a Boston mafia over here.
Paula leaders of -- mafia but I think it's fair to say that Boston is well represented here in Afghanistan he didn't make certain claims about the outcome World Series you'll industry I would make a similar claim about the World Series here in 2013.
And I'm pretty confident the Boston Red Sox went.
Coming up on notorious crime it's -- -- he's crazy he's gonna kill me.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Charles -- weather and Carol and you -- Two teenagers whose names -- still bring a children across this capital city of Lincoln and the nearby small farming community of Bennett.
In January of 1958.
The -- left a bloody trail of terror on the great plains.
And to this day -- mystery continues.
Was fourteen year old Carol and few -- Charlie -- -- hostage or all willing accomplice.
You believe she was never being held hostage no.
I've looked into her eyes and I watched her reason.
He had nothing to whom do you think Lincoln will ever forget the name Charlie star whether absolutely -- yeah.
-- Harding was a 25 year old cub reporter for the -- start earning seventy dollars a week yeah what was the timeline.
Before these workers.
Great time -- Great -- -- Dennis Arnott also grew up in Lincoln during the 1950s.
He was the son of Lancaster County -- moral -- not.
Along with his mother Gertrude the family maintained living quarters inside the county jail.
He was really a tough mean guy and -- two years ahead of me in school but he was four years older than I was -- that.
Suggest something about how I didn't -- Start whether family consisting of six boys and one girl.
-- -- -- -- Pretty rough pretty tough to.
Probably scrambling to make and I think they were.
-- -- time they were in garbage hauling business.
He hated people and some games that -- excuse.
Saying this is why I hate people because you lose -- Belinda but tasty as a lawyer and the co author of them that well they don't.
-- -- -- -- I don't really feel and she had already.
And -- more.
But there was one person the eighteen year old start weather didn't hate.
He had eyes for a spunky and rebellious thirteen year old named Carol and -- -- He became -- into the Caroline she was with content.
She said my -- -- was so funny he put me on a pedestal and I slammed it behind me things.
The two cruised around Lincoln and -- speed up 49 -- hot rod.
Charlie was also a crack shot and really into guns and -- parents didn't like him one bit.
They probably -- very impressed with him as a person they certainly we're concerned about the age difference between them.
This empty lot at the low income Belmont section of Lincoln is all that remains of where Carol was living at the time.
With her hard working stepfather 57 year old -- Bartlett a night watchman.
And her 36 year old mother -- Also living there was her two and a half year old half sister Betty Jean.
-- desire to -- -- for Carol soon became problematic.
Quit high school but he hated working menial jobs which included a stint as a garbage man.
After getting fired and having a fight with his father he was kicked out of the house Charlie was desperate for money.
Located here on -- -- highway this used to be a press gas station that -- like to hang around.
In the early morning hours of December 1 1957.
There was only one employee working.
21 year old Robert Colbert who was married with a baby on the way.
Start whether -- robbed him and then forced him at gunpoint to drive them both to a secluded area.
Took him out on -- gravel road.
Children and the speculation is that he did -- to get money so it could buy things for -- And do we know even how much money he got from Robert Colbert my guess is that under a hundred dollars -- now saw himself as a genuine outlaw.
But what happened after Colbert murder is where our story becomes murky and is mired in controversy.
Keep -- telling channel.
He's -- me we've got to count my -- there at this point she started to feel a little bit suffocated by him right she actually kind of told them not to call her.
I January 21 1958.
Knowing what happened at the Portland home in Belmont on that cold winter day depends on who we believe.
One thing is known for sure.
-- stepfather and mother had been shot and stabbed to death two and a half year old Betty Jean was bludgeoned with the butt of a rifle and stabbed with a night.
Fourteen year old -- said she came home from school -- start whether in her home.
Pointing a shotgun at her with her family nowhere in sight.
In this exclusive 1989.
Interview with a current affair.
But then 46 year old Carol and few gates described.
What happened next bishop dependent in my case.
And had -- -- in a rocking chair.
In this is where he told me at that time.
My family was over this woman counts you know and and it I did what I was told they wouldn't be her he had to do with -- phone -- in Newington.
-- shotgun blast can cause a lot of damage.
And there would be blood everywhere and yet apparently he was able to clean it all up before she came home.
Yes yeah this possible.
Well he's had -- nice to clean up.
The three bodies having -- jumped in to sheds in the backyard went undiscovered for nearly a week.
As Carol and Charlie remained in the house.
But reporter -- Harding who visited the crime scene still does not believe Carol's story.
I think Charlie's story that he got into an argument with her stepfather.
And it escalated from there and and ended up shooting -- stepfather.
The -- her mother ran -- screaming he's been killed -- murdered.
And in your view Carol and you -- was there and watching all of this and knew exactly what was happening to our units.
There -- people came to the home looking for Charlie.
Trying to reach out to Carol and -- -- mother.
And her demeanor was very odd.
-- -- want to get in the house.
Carol several sick with the flu go away when her -- Carroll had a sign on the -- -- -- stay on everybody's sick with the flu.
And it was signed.
Miss Bartlett whose burglar -- -- spark in the house sponsor.
On the scene sister who couldn't you know right next.
And act -- from signing -- teen you know me.
Somebody will figure this out and ask and do something.
Because I'm not painting something.
Other family members and even the Lincoln police stopped by during the week by Carroll talked them out of coming inside on Monday January 27.
-- grandmother finally had enough.
She yelled -- that she was returning with the police and a search warrant Charlie decided it was time to hit the road.
-- didn't care.
Hours later when the bodies of Marianne de Velde and -- -- Bartlett were discovered an all points bulletin was issued for the -- I swear -- almighty -- and killed him.
And I only -- because I had -- children.
She says she's being taken hostage.
He says that she came along willingly and and you believe his story.
I don't believe she was ever constitution that Parliament -- were and it turned her.
Coming up -- bloodbath continues.
After playing the Bartlett residents Charlie start weather and Carol and you gave -- it.
Twenty miles south and -- -- to the small town of that in Nebraska.
Stopping at the farm house of the seventy year old August Myer family friend knows Charlie since he was a boy.
What do they do to him.
Charlie claims that artist -- came to the door carrying a gun.
And so Charlie supposedly felt threatened Charlie I think -- just look for an excuse to kill kill and we just another cold blooded killer.
Yeah I think now.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm going -- we'll call you an idea of being very careful and don't cross.
Because if he could wipe out this man -- He did in the.
After blasting away August -- and -- whether -- -- cars stuck in the mud outside of -- bar while walking along the darkened highway the two were spotted by two popular embedded teenagers.
Seventeen year old Robert Jensen and sixteen year old -- Cain in a fateful decision at Jensen offered them a ride it wasn't long before you start -- had them at gunpoint from the backseat to.
They're bloody bodies were found the next day and it Danks storm cellar -- their August Myers my arm.
Jensen had been shot six times in the head.
McCain wants her partially nude body had also been sexually mutilated you saw that storm cell.
Yes it was a terrible sorry American close -- and -- -- Today on those two kids but he's -- on -- -- Carol and few -- admits she did hold a gun on the Koppel at one point.
And took four dollars out of -- wallet an act that would later cost her dearly.
But she claims she did it at stark weather's coming.
January 20 stock.
With six people murdered Charlie and Carol drove back.
Right this is the homes -- whether chose to hide out it.
It was owned by wealthy and well respected 47 year old businessman -- our board and his wife Clara.
Carol and waited in the car the rear of the driveway while Charlie went into the house.
Inside were 46 year old Daryle Ward and her 51 year old made Lillian -- -- Armed with guns and tonight Charlie and Carol land terrorized -- women for nearly ten hours and so what happened at this house.
That's a -- dispute -- the only thing it's not disputed is that two or three people killed.

-- story is that Carol either killed or assisted in killing then I think some of the two women.
Charlie admits -- you wrestled with that mr.

And everybody immediately knew who did it.
Charlie's car was stuck in the mood that from our house Bob Johnson's car was gone.

That's tonight Charlie and Carol got into -- awards 1956.
Packard and began to head west starter whether his brother's home in Washington State.
When the three bodies were discovered at the -- house the next day Lincoln converged on mass hysteria.
Everybody started thinking oh my god whose house -- -- and around town.

Adjoining counties including -- understand all of bill what help they can -- again.
From what police now looking for power wards Packard started -- new PE -- new set of wheels.
His opportunity came just over the Wyoming state line near the town of Douglas.
-- 37 year old salesman -- Collison was asleep in his car on the side of the highway.
Boy unlucky guy.
Her reserve the right Charlie -- that Charlie's story is that his gun jammed.
And -- it Carroll to gear and other gun.
So earlier story is that Caroline is due to getting under the gun just pumped bulletin of mr.
Charlie testified that he said I think for quote was she was the most trigger happy person -- ever seen.
With Collison slumped on the passenger floorboards stark weather was having trouble releasing the cars break.
When 29 year old -- sprinkle passed by him on the highway.
Nationality you turn highway.
And park -- -- the moment.
They need emerged from the car and -- her life.
And huge hands on his hands up OK you.
Coming up -- -- may not have realized it but he was about to have the -- of his life.
With the mass murderer.
Stopping to help what he thought it was a stranded motorist on Wyoming's route twenty.

They were both returned in separate cars to Lincoln Charlie road with the sheriff's Carol witnesses -- According to my mother she never said anything that would suggest that she's.
The innocent victim here.
Start whether confessed to killing his first victim gas station attendant Robert Colbert.
Although eleven people had been murdered it's still a mystery why Charlie and Carol were tried separately.
Only for the robbery and killing of seventeen year old Robert Jensen.
After a two week trial in May 1958.
Stark weather was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death.
That October 1 week before her trial began -- held a press conference.
I was out there who have watched Carol and her usual icy cold demeanor had two questions.

Disagrees with the verdict she was not acting as a free agent at any time.
In an order to commit a crime you have to act as a free agent or Charles stark whether justice was swift after a failed series of appeals he was executed shortly after midnight on June 25 1959.
Dell Harding was a witness.
They gave him three jolts of electricity was really is different -- and down each time.
