Snapped: Teen Stabbed More Than 50 Times By Her “Best Friends”

"It makes you wonder, how well do you know your child’s friends?" -- Sharon Martin

By Matt Muro

The new season of Snapped premieres this Sunday at 9/8c with a heinous story about the murder of Skylar Neese, who was stabbed more than 50 times by her “best friends” at the age of 16 in a small West Virginia town. 

Sharon Martin, a.k.a. “The Voice” of Snapped and a co-executive producer of the show, says this 2012 case is about the dark side of high school cliques and is every parent’s worst nightmare. "Skylar Neese's father came home to find his daughter was missing and for months, the family had no idea what happened to her."

But the most shocking part, according to Sharon, is why Skylar was killed—a question that Skylar herself asked while she was being ruthlessly stabbed. "As the mother of a teenager myself, the idea that someone so young could be capable of such cruelty is startling,” says Sharon. "It makes you wonder, how well do you know your child’s friends?"

Pictured below is Skylar's father, who is interviewed as part of the episode. Get all of the details of this heartbreaking case and find out why Skylar died by watching Snapped this Sunday at 9/8c.
