What happened: Jamie was lured into a neighbor's apartment, hit over the head with a cutting board then smothered. The neighbor, Kevin Ray Underwood, 29, confessed that he had had cannibalistic fantasies of killing a child from his complex and eating the body. He admitted that he killed Jamie, tried to have sex with her body and used a dagger to try to remove her head. He said he became disgusted with himself and did not eat any of her body. He told an FBI agent, “I'm going to burn in hell.”

Other: The case got national attention when officials revealed grisly details of the cannibalistic plot. Underwood was found guilty of first-degree murder and is on death row.
