Two San Diego teens Amber Dubois and Chelsea King are killed by a convicted sex offender who slipped through the cracks.
Now 10 years later, I sit down for an EXCLUSIVE interview with Amber's mother Carrie McGonigle.
This is a case I covered from the missing persons command post, to the crime scene tape and ultimately the courtroom for the double murder trial.
Carrie shares new details in the case, how she found out Gardner was her daughters killer and what she said to him when she got him alone for 30 minutes in jail.
On Friday the 13th, in February 2009, 14-year-old Amber Dubois vanished while walking to Escondido High School. She had Valentine’s Day cards in her pocket and $200 to purchase a lamb for her 4H program.
More than a year after the case went cold 17-year-old Chelsea King disappeared while jogging on February 25th, 2010. Chelsea was a Senior and track star at Poway High School.
After Garner was arrested he pled guilty to rape and murder and led authorities to Amber's remains located on PALA Tribal land.
John Albert Gardner III is serving two life terms in prison for the rape and murder of Chelsea King and Amber Dubois.
