Mormon Sons: Brian Draper and Torey Adamcik
Who would have ever thought, they mused in wonder, that three days out of their lives would have such an enormous effect on them for the rest of their lives? They didn’t mention specifically the culmination of that short interval of time, the date of September 22nd, nor the vitally significant event that erupted with volcanic force that day. Something they did that would cause them to spend the rest of their lives in prison. They engaged in a little light-hearted banter with the driver. “We are just stupid kids. Can’t you let us go?” they suggested. The flippant mood in the back waned somewhat when they saw the sign that caused their driver to turn off the freeway: Idaho Correctional Center. Soon the visually forbiddingly collection of drab brick buildings surrounded by high gun towers and reinforced steel compound wire, hove into view. Draper and Adamcik were convicted of first-degree murder in the slaying of Cassie Jo Stoddart. All three were just 16 years old.
