Be Right Back (2018)

I MADE THE CHEERLEADING TEAM!

A SMALL-TOWN GIRL...

I GOT TO GO GET READY.

...IS GROWING UP FAST.

I TOLD ALICIA TO SLOW DOWN.

CURFEW IS MIDNIGHT. I GOT IT.

YOU COMING?

BUT SHE'S HIDING A SECRET.

SHE HAD FRIENDS EVERYWHERE, PEOPLE WE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW.

I JUST WANTED TO THINK THAT SHE WAS STILL GOING TO COME HOME.

AND NO ONE IS TELLING THE TRUTH...

THINK I GOT SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS?

...UNTIL IT'S TOO LATE.

YOUR GOAL IS TO BRING HER BACK, BUT NOT THIS WAY, NOT THIS WAY.

CAPTIONS PAID FOR BY DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS

LIKE MOST 14-YEAR-OLDS, ALICIA DEBOLT IS ADDICTED TO HER CELLPHONE.

YOU WEREN'T THINKING OF --

I SAID, "I DON'T SUPPOSE YOU WERE THINKING OF HELPING."

CAN'T HEAR YOU, MOM.

HOW CONVENIENT.

I NEED TO TAKE A SELFIE.

SHE WAS BRIGHT, FUNNY, ALWAYS LAUGHING, SMILING.

HERE COMES THE TORNADO.

GRACIE, HI.

HOW ARE YOU?

WHO'S MY LITTLE GIRL?

ALICIA LIVES WITH HER MOTHER, TAMMY.

SHE WAS MY WORLD.

SHE LOVED GIVING.

SHE LOVED HER NIECES.

THEY WERE HER WORLD.

AW.

I LOVE YOU TOO MUCH!

ALICIA SPENDS A LOT OF TIME CHATTING ONLINE.

FRIENDS WERE VERY IMPORTANT.

SHE HAD A LOT OF THEM.

THERE'S SO MANY THAT I DON'T EVEN KNOW.

SOCIAL MEDIA, SHE'D PUT PICTURES ON THERE AND HER AND HER FRIENDS WOULD HAVE CONVERSATIONS BACK AND FORTH.

SHE HAD LOTS OF FRIENDS, FRIENDS EVERYWHERE, PEOPLE WE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW.

I MEAN, EVERYBODY KNEW ALICIA.

ONE OF ALICIA'S CLOSEST FRIENDS IS VICKIE CRAWFORD.

LIKE, YOU DON'T EVEN NEED TO BE TALLER.

JUST A COUPLE MORE INCHES, IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?

VICKIE AND ALICIA WERE INSEPARABLE THROUGH MIDDLE SCHOOL.

VICKIE REMINDS ME A LOT OF ME.

SHE'S A GOOD KID, YOU KNOW?

ALICIA WAS A VERY, VERY PRETTY GIRL.

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DIDN'T THINK THAT SHE LOOKED YOUNG, BUT YOU COULD TELL THAT SHE WAS YOUNG.

ALICIA IS EXCITED AND FULL OF ANTICIPATION FOR HER FRESHMAN YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL.

YOU KNOW WHAT I FOUND OUT TODAY?

I ONLY GET FOUR BATHROOM PASSES FOR THE WHOLE YEAR.

NOT FUNNY, OKAY?

SERIOUSLY, NOT FUNNY.

I MEAN, AM I STARTING HIGH SCHOOL OR FREAKING JUVIE?

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT.

ONE.

STOP IT!

SHE LOVED CHEER AND GYMNASTICS.

SHE REALLY PUT SOME EFFORT INTO IT TO BE ON THE CHEER SQUAD IN GREAT BEND.

CUT IT OUT!

NO, SERIOUSLY. HANG ON A SECOND.

HANG ON.

MY GOD.

MY GOD! TELL ME!

I MADE THE CHEERLEADING TEAM!

I REMEMBER THE DAY SHE MADE IT INTO THE HIGH-SCHOOL TEAM.

SHE WAS VERY EXCITED, AND SHE JUST SLID IN, YOU KNOW?

IT'S NOT LIKE SHE EVEN HAD TO TRY.

HANG ON. I GOT TO TELL SOME PEOPLE.

SHE'S SO SWEET.

ANOTHER FRIEND FROM SCHOOL IS MARISSA.

AND THEN HE FINALLY COMES OVER, AND HE GIVES ME THIS DRINK, AND I SWEAR TO GOD IT'S THE MOST DISGUSTING THING I EVER PUT IN MY MOUTH IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.

MARISSA KNOWS SOME OF THE OLDER BOYS IN TOWN, LIKE 19-YEAR-OLD IVAN RAMIREZ.

SEE WHAT I SEE?

LEESH, I THINK HE LIKES YOU.

MARISSA.

WHAT'S UP?

HOW ABOUT WE GO DRIVE?

ALICIA WAS DEFINITELY ON THAT LINE OF BEING A CHILD AND BEING A WOMAN.

I MEAN, SHE TRIED DOING THINGS THAT OLDER PEOPLE WERE DOING THAT SHE PROBABLY SHOULDN'T BE DOING.

HEY, ALICIA. HEY.

I HEAR YOU MADE THE TEAM.

YEAH, I DID.

YOU COMING?

WE WOULD HAVE THOSE CONVERSATIONS AND TELL HER THAT SHE NEEDED TO MAKE BETTER DECISIONS, THAT SHE NEEDED TO BE MORE GUARDED ABOUT WHO SHE WAS HANGING OUT WITH.

IT'S EXCITING, YOU KNOW, SOMEONE OLDER BEING INTERESTED IN YOU.

REALLY?

I KNOW, BUT HE'S SO CUTE.

I TOLD ALICIA, "SLOW DOWN. YOU'RE GROWING UP TOO FAST."

SHE WASN'T MY BABY NO MORE.

VĂ¡MONOS!

YOU KNOW, A HOT GUY WANTS YOU TO GET IN HIS TRUCK AND GO FOR A RIDE.

IT SMELLS NICE. IT LOOKS NICE.

WHATEVER, BUT THE FACT THAT HE IS A PORTION OF YOUR AGE OLDER ALREADY IS A RED FLAG.

IT'S NOW ALMOST THE END OF SUMMER...

LOOK AT THE WAY THIS ONE SPINS. IT'S LIKE A MINI-GLOBE.

...AND ALICIA IS SHOPPING WITH BIG SISTER DAWN.

LOOK AT THIS PENDANT.

I LOVE THE LITTLE DIAMONDS AROUND IT AND THE PINK IN THE MIDDLE.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? IS THE "A" A LITTLE CORNY?

NO WAY. LET ME TAKE A PICTURE FOR YOU.

I THINK IT LOOKS GOOD.

I LOVE IT. I'M GOING TO BUY IT.

GIVE ME ONE SEC.

IVAN, I THINK, WAS TEXTING HER, AND SHE WAS GOING TO GO TO A PARTY, AND IT WAS THE LAST WEEKEND BEFORE SCHOOL.

SO IT WAS JUST, LIKE, A BACK-TO-SCHOOL PARTY.

THERE'S A PARTY TONIGHT, LITTLE MEX?

COME ON, ALICIA.

MARISSA IS GOING TO BE THERE, AND IVAN IS GOING TO BE THERE.

SHE HAD SAID SOMETHING ABOUT SOME FRIENDS HAVING A GET-TOGETHER, AND IVAN'S NAME CAME UP.

SHE STATED SHE WOULD MAKE AN APPEARANCE, AND THEN SHE'D BE HOME BY MIDNIGHT.

COME ON.

I'LL BE HOME BY MIDNIGHT, NO PROBLEM.

IT'S LATE WHEN DAWN AND ALICIA ARRIVE HOME, BUT ALICIA IS STILL DETERMINED TO GO OUT.

A PARTY, NOW?

IT'S 10:30.

HOW ARE YOU GETTING THERE?

IVAN IS PICKING ME UP AT 11:00.

I GOT TO GO GET READY.

IS THAT IVAN?

YEAH, HE'S OUTSIDE.

WE'RE GOING TO PICK UP MARISSA NEXT.

SO CURFEW IS?

CURFEW IS MIDNIGHT. I GOT IT.

SHE SAID, "MOM, I'LL JUST -- I'LL BE HOME BY MIDNIGHT.

I'M NOT STAYING LONG.

JUST GOING TO GO IN BECAUSE I'M TIRED.

I'M GOING TO GO IN AND SAY HELLO TO EVERYBODY, AND THEN I'LL BE BACK HOME."

I'LL SEE YOU IN AN HOUR.

LOVE YOU.

SHE CAME OVER, GAVE ME A HUG AND A KISS.

"SEE YOU IN ABOUT AN HOUR, MOM.

LOVE YOU."

BYE!

I DIDN'T GO SEE WHO SHE WAS GETTING IN THE CAR WITH.

I JUST -- I JUST SAID, "GOODBYE."

AND THAT WAS THE LAST I SEEN HER.

IT'S THE LAST SATURDAY NIGHT OF SUMMER VACATION IN GREAT BEND, KANSAS, AND 14-YEAR-OLD ALICIA DEBOLT GETS READY TO GO TO A PARTY.

LOVE YOU.

BYE!

SHE PROMISED TO BE BACK BY MIDNIGHT.

BUT IT'S NOW MORNING, AND THERE'S NO SIGN OF HER.

ALICIA, I NEED YOU TO CALL ME BACK NOW, PLEASE.

JUST LET ME KNOW WHERE YOU ARE.

HER MOTHER, TAMMY, HAS BEEN UP ALL NIGHT, WORRIED SICK FOR HER DAUGHTER.

I'D JUST TELL HER TO CALL ME, TEXT ME.

"LET ME KNOW WHERE YOU ARE. LOVE YOU. WORRIED ABOUT YOU."

I'D LIKE TO REPORT A MISSING PERSON, MY DAUGHTER.

TAMMY IS TOLD THAT ALICIA NEEDS TO BE MISSING FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE POLICE WILL START AN INVESTIGATION.

I GET THAT.

YEAH, I GET THAT.

SHE IS MISSING.

I KNOW SHE IS.

YES.

I KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS WRONG, BUT I JUST FELT SOMETHING WAS WRONG.

ALICIA'S SISTER, DAWN, WASTES NO TIME IN THE EFFORT TO TRACK HER DOWN.

YEAH, HI.

I GOT YOUR NUMBER FROM ALICIA'S CELLPHONE BILL.

AT THIS TIME, IT WASN'T FEAR YET.

IT WAS ON THAT THIN LINE OF BEING TERRIFIED BUT JUST ANGRY.

SO YOU HAVEN'T SEEN HER?

I WAS BASICALLY NUMB.

I REMEMBER SITTING IN MY CHAIR AND WATCHED THE DOOR AND PRAYED AND PRAYED AND PRAYED.

THE WEEKEND IS OVER, AND IT'S ALICIA'S MUCH-ANTICIPATED FIRST DAY OF FRESHMAN YEAR.

BUT STILL, SHE'S NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.

WHEN SHE DIDN'T SHOW UP, WE KNEW THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG.

IT WASN'T SHE JUST RAN AWAY.

I JUST FELT THAT IN MY HEART.

SHE ALWAYS SENDS A TEXT IF SHE'S GOING TO BE LATE OR IF SOMETHING HAPPENS, ALWAYS.

WITH ALICIA OFFICIALLY MISSING FOR MORE THAN 24 HOURS, DETECTIVES HEATHER SMITH AND TERRY MILLARD FROM THE GREAT BEND POLICE ARE ASSIGNED TO THE CASE.

ONE OF THE QUESTIONS I HAD ASKED THE FAMILY WAS, "WHAT MAKES THIS SITUATION DIFFERENT THAN MAYBE ANY TIMES IN THE PAST?"

AND THE FAMILY WAS ALL IN AGREEMENT ALICIA ALWAYS HAS HER CELLPHONE.

SHE USUALLY CALLED IF SHE'S GOING TO BE LATE, OR SHE'D RESPOND TO THE TEXT BECAUSE THAT WAS ONE OF OUR MAIN RULES, YOU KNOW.

AND SO THAT WAS THEIR CONCERN.

THAT'S WHAT MADE ME THINK THEY'RE RIGHT.

AND THIS GUY, IVAN RAMIREZ, HE PICKS HER UP AT 11:00 P.M., RIGHT?

MRS. CONRAD?

DID I MENTION SHE WAS WEARING A PENDANT, A HEART WITH AN "A" WRITTEN ON IT?

DAWN TOOK A PICTURE.

AT THIS POINT, WE DON'T KNOW THAT ANYTHING HAS HAPPENED.

WE DON'T KNOW THAT THERE'S A CRIME BEEN COMMITTED.

I'M NOT THINKING SOMETHING TERRIBLE HAS HAPPENED.

ALL I'M THINKING OF IS THIS LITTLE GIRL IS OUT THERE ON THE STREET SOMEWHERE, AND WE NEED TO FIND HER AND BRING HER HOME.

SHE'S LOVELY.

A SMALL TOWN LIKE GREAT BEND, IT DOESN'T SOME VERY BIG, AND THEN SOMEBODY GOES MISSING, AND YOU START LOOKING FOR THEM, AND IT'S LIKE CALIFORNIA.

IT'S HUGE BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MRS. CONRAD.

IF YOU CAN THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE THAT MIGHT HELP US, PLEASE LET US KNOW.

YOU TAKE CARE NOW.

I JUST REMEMBER DETECTIVE MILLER AND DETECTIVE SMITH.

THEY WAS ASKING A LOT OF QUESTIONS.

YOU GOT TO FIND OUT WHAT ELSE IS THERE AND FIND OUT ANY ADDITIONAL DETAILS YOU CAN.

YES?

AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD, PEOPLE STARTED PAYING ATTENTION, TRYING TO FIND JUST ANYTHING THAT WOULD HELP.

I WANT HER CELL RECORDS FOR THE PAST 60 DAYS.

ALREADY ON IT.

WE BETTER CHECK OUT THIS RAMIREZ GUY.

YEAH, AND HER OTHER BUDDIES, TOO.

I STARTED RESEARCHING WHAT WAS OUT THERE AND WHAT PEOPLE WERE SAYING IN THIS AREA ABOUT ALICIA'S DISAPPEARANCE.

YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU GO ON AHEAD.

ALL RIGHT.

THEY WOULD CHECK EVERY LEAD.

ANYBODY THAT KNEW WHERE SHE WAS, PLEASE RESPOND, PLEASE CALL.

ARE YOU A PART OF ALICIA'S FAMILY?

NO, I'M ADAM LONGORIA.

I LIVE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, FIGURED I COULD HELP.

I WONDER, COULD YOU DO ME A BIG FAVOR?

SURE, ANYTHING.

WHILE POLICE WAIT FOR ALICIA'S CELLPHONE RECORDS, SOCIAL MEDIA EXPLODES WITH RUMORS ABOUT ALICIA AND IVAN RAMIREZ.

SOCIAL MEDIA DID GO MAD.

THERE WAS A LOT OF PEOPLE, "I SAW HER HERE.

I SAW HER THERE."

THERE WAS PEOPLE MAKING UP STORIES, SAYING, "I KNOW WHERE SHE'S AT, BUT I CAN'T TELL YOU BECAUSE THAT'S NOT YOUR BUSINESS."

AND IT'S LIKE, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO SAY THAT WHEN HER FAMILY LITERALLY THINKS THAT SHE'S, YOU KNOW, THAT SHE'S LITERALLY MISSING?

THE PARTY ALICIA WAS SET TO ATTEND THAT NIGHT WAS IN AN AREA OF TOWN CALLED LITTLE MEXICO.

LITTLE MEXICO, IT'S IN THE EDGE OF TOWN.

IT'S KIND OF TRASHY.

THERE'S A LOT OF RUN-DOWN TRAILERS AND SUCH.

ALL OF HER FRIENDS LIVED DOWN THERE BECAUSE SHE HAD A LOT OF FRIENDS THAT WERE MEXICAN, SO IT WAS NOTHING.

IT DIDN'T STAND OUT TO US BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE SHE HUNG OUT.

ALICIA TOLD HER FAMILY IVAN RAMIREZ WOULD BE DRIVING HER TO THE PARTY.

I BELIEVE THE FIRST TIME I CONTACTED IVAN RAMIREZ, I BELIEVE IT WAS THAT MONDAY, THAT MONDAY AFTERNOON.

AND I WENT TO HIS RESIDENCE AND TALKED TO HIM.

YOU HEARD ABOUT ALICIA DEBOLT?

I HEARD SHE WENT AWOL.

HE SAID THAT HE HADN'T SEEN HER, AND BASICALLY HE DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HER DISAPPEARANCE.

HER MOM SAID YOU WERE TAKING HER A PARTY THAT NIGHT.

WELL, SHE WAS WRONG.

NOT ME.

WHERE WERE YOU SATURDAY NIGHT, MR. RAMIREZ?

YOU THINK I GOT SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS?

THIS IS CRAZY, MAN.

I HAD A WEDDING RECEPTION EARLY, THEN WENT OVER TO WILLY JAY'S.

ANYONE WITH YOU AT WILLY JAY'S?

EMMANUEL RIDING SHOTGUN AND MY BUDDY, ROCCO.

I THINK HE TOLD ME THAT HE MAY HAVE GOTTEN HOME AROUND 5:00 A.M.

I MEAN, WE DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING SAYING THAT HE HAD COMMITTED A CRIME, BUT I WAS STILL OPEN TO THE FACT THAT MAYBE IVAN KNEW WHERE SHE WAS AT.

THANKS FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE, MR. RAMIREZ.

I APPRECIATE IT.

IT'S TWO DAYS SINCE ALICIA DISAPPEARED, AND THERE'S STILL NO SIGN OF HER.

IT'S A FEELING OF LOSS, OF HOPELESSNESS BECAUSE YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING.

BACK IN ALICIA'S NEIGHBORHOOD, AN INVESTIGATOR TURNS UP NEW INFORMATION.

HER MOTHER, TAMMY, DIDN'T SEE THE CAR THAT PICKED ALICIA UP THAT SATURDAY NIGHT, BUT SOME NEIGHBORS ACROSS THE ROAD DID.

THEY SAW A VEHICLE DRIVE BY STONE STREET AND STOPPED IN FRONT OF THE DEBOLT RESIDENCE.

THEY DESCRIBED THE VEHICLE AS A BLACK-COLORED SUV-TYPE VEHICLE.

THE WITNESSES WERE NOT ABLE TO PROVIDE ANY DESCRIPTION OF THE DRIVER.

THEY JUST SAID THEY SAW ALICIA COME OUT AND GET IN A VEHICLE, AND SHE APPEARED TO BE TALKING ON THE TELEPHONE.

SHE STOOD BY THE CAR.

SHE DIDN'T GET RIGHT INTO THE CAR, BUT SHE STOOD BY THE CAR FOR A LITTLE BIT WITH THE DOOR OPEN, AND THEN SHE ULTIMATELY GETS INSIDE THE VEHICLE.

WITH THE DRIVER'S IDENTITY A MYSTERY, POLICE TAKE STOCK OF THE PEOPLE THEY'VE ENCOUNTERED OVER THE PAST TWO DAYS.

ONE OF THEM MAY BE WORTH A SECOND GLANCE.

DETECTIVE SMITH CALLS IN ADAM LONGORIA, THE NEIGHBOR SHE MET OUTSIDE ALICIA'S HOUSE.

SO I WAS WONDERING, HOW COME YOU VISITED HER PARENTS?

THEY DON'T KNOW YOU.

YOU DON'T KNOW THEM.

I JUST WANTED TO HELP.

DO YOU KNOW ALICIA?

I KNOW THE COMPANY SHE KEEPS.

TAKE THAT GUY, RAMIREZ.

ADAM LONGORIA SAID THAT HE HAD HEARD THAT IVAN WAS THE LAST ONE THAT WAS WITH ALICIA.

I'M SURE HE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS, BUT GUYS LIKE HIM, THEY'RE ON THE EDGE.

WE ALL KNOW GUYS LIKE HIM.

BUT GUYS LIKE HIM, THEY'RE ON THE EDGE.

FORTY-EIGHT HOURS AFTER LEAVING HER GREAT BEND HOME TO GO TO A PARTY, 14-YEAR-OLD ALICIA DEBOLT IS STILL MISSING.

MRS. CONRAD?

DETECTIVE SMITH NEEDS SAMPLES OF ALICIA'S DNA.

IT COULD BE USEFUL LATER IF DNA EVIDENCE IS FOUND.

MRS. CONRAD?

YOU KNOW, WHEN SHE WAS BORN, EVERYONE SAID SHE LOOKED LIKE A LITTLE CHINA DOLL.

SHE KNEW I LOVED HER, AND THERE'S NO WORDS TO EXPRESS THE LOVE.

IS IT OKAY IF WE TAKE HER HAIRBRUSH AND THIS T-SHIRT?

YEAH, THAT'S FINE.

MY WORLD WAS GONE.

I WAS ANGRY AT MYSELF BECAUSE I DIDN'T PROTECT MY BABY.

WE'RE GOING TO FIND HER, TAMMY.

DETECTIVE SMITH FOLLOWS UP WITH IVAN RAMIREZ, THE LAST PERSON RUMORED TO HAVE SEEN ALICIA.

LONGORIA REFERRED TO IVAN RAMIREZ AS SOMEWHAT OF A DODGY GUY, BUT HE HAD HUNG OUT WITH HIM AND THAT KIND OF THING.

ARE YOU SURE YOU DIDN'T PICK UP ALICIA?

DID YOU TALK TO HER ON SATURDAY?

LOOK, I WAS AT WILLIE JAY'S.

I TOLD THE GUY.

IVAN STILL SAID THAT HE WAS NOT THERE.

HE DIDN'T PICK UP ALICIA DEBOLT THAT NIGHT.

I WAS WITH EMANUEL.

AND YOUR BUDDY, ROCCO.

LOOK, ABOUT ROCCO, I SAID HE WAS WITH US AT THE BAR, BUT THAT AIN'T TRUE.

I MET UP WITH HIM ON SUNDAY, AND HE TOLD ME, IF ANY ONE ASKS, TO SAY THAT HE WAS AT WILLIE JAY'S ON SATURDAY.

THAT'S ALL.

RAMIREZ'S FRIEND, ROCCO, IS NOW ANOTHER PERSON OF INTEREST,

BUT BEFORE DETECTIVE SMITH CAN LOOK INTO HIM --

I TAKE A CALL FROM THE SENIOR AGENT IN CHARGE, AND HE INFORMS ME THAT WE HAVE A BODY.

DETECTIVE SMITH DRIVES TO AN ASPHALT PLANT ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN.

IS IT HER?

THERE'S SOMETHING YOU NEED TO SEE.

JESUS!

THE BODY WAS BURNED BEYOND RECOGNITION.

MUST HAVE BEEN GASOLINE.

PEOPLE JUST DON'T BURN LIKE THAT.

YOU COULD SEE AREAS IN THE SAND BELOW HER, SUGGESTIVE TOWARDS MAYBE AN ACCELERANT THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN POURED ON HER.

WE GOT ANY DENTAL RECORDS ON HER?

WE'RE WORKING ON IT.

I'VE BEEN A LAW-ENFORCEMENT OFFICER FOR QUITE A FEW YEARS AND BEEN INVOLVED IN SEVERAL HOMICIDES.

AND FOR ME, ESPECIALLY A CHILD, THAT REALLY UPSETS ME.

WE FOUND THIS IN ONE OF HER HANDS.

DID I MENTION SHE WAS WEARING A PENDANT, A HEART WITH AN "A" WRITTEN ON IT?

LOOKS LIKE WE FOUND HER, TERRY.

I THINK SO.

JUDGING BY THE SPECIFIC JEWELRY THAT HAD HER INITIAL ON IT, THE INITIAL "A,"

EVEN THOUGH IT'S NOT 100 PERCENT AT THAT POINT, YOU KNOW, I WAS CONVINCED IT WAS ALICIA.

I TALKED TO RAMIREZ, SAID SOME GUY WANTED AN ALIBI FOR SATURDAY.

GOT A NAME?

YOU KNOW ANYONE NAMED ROCCO?

ROCCO?

THAT'S THE GUY WHO WAS OUT AT THE DEBOLT HOUSE.

YOU WERE TALKING TO HIM.

ARE YOU PART OF ALICIA'S FAMILY?

NO, I'M ADAM LONGORIA.

I LIVE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

I FIGURED I COULD HELP.

LONGORIA, ADAM LONGORIA, THAT'S ROCCO?

BACK AT THE POLICE STATION, DETECTIVE SMITH MUST NOW INFORM THE FAMILY.

I'M SO SORRY.

THEY WERE CRUSHED.

IT'S THE KIND OF MESSAGE YOU NEVER WANT TO GIVE OR NEVER GET.

CAN I SEE HER?

MRS. CONRAD, I DON'T THINK THAT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA RIGHT NOW.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IT'S HER?

COULD BE ANYONE, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT AIN'T HER!

IT AIN'T HER.

MY MOM, SHE WAS IN DENIAL.

IT WASN'T ALICIA.

AS AN INVESTIGATOR, YOU JUST WANT TO BRING HER BACK.

YOUR GOAL IS TO BRING HER BACK.

BUT NOT THIS WAY, NOT THIS WAY.

I WOULDN'T BELIEVE THAT IT WAS HER BECAUSE I JUST WANTED TO THINK THAT SHE WAS STILL GOING TO COME HOME.

WE HAD ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT WHO WAS GOING TO DIE FIRST, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE WE WERE GOING TO BE BEST FRIENDS FOREVER, AND I WAS OLDER, SO I WAS SUPPOSED TO DIE FIRST.

AND NOW YOUR 14-YEAR-OLD FRIEND IS MURDERED.

ALL I COULD THINK ABOUT FOR THE LONGEST TIME IS HOW THIS HAPPENED TO HER AND HOW SHE FELT IN THAT MOMENT, AND SHE WAS ALONE.

AS THE INVESTIGATION HEATS UP, ALICIA'S FRIEND, MARISSA, REVEALS THAT SHE SPOKE TO ALICIA ON THE PHONE JUST AS SHE WAS LEAVING THE HOUSE.

ALICIA TOLD ME IVAN WAS GOING TO COME PICK HER UP.

SHE SEEMED REALLY HAPPY ABOUT IT.

SHE SAID SHE'D COME PICK ME UP AFTERWARDS.

I MEAN, I WAS ONLY FIVE MINUTES AWAY.

MARISSA'S STATEMENT CONFIRMS THAT ALICIA WAS SUPPOSED TO MEET IVAN THAT NIGHT.

FROM THE STATEMENTS GIVEN FROM ONE DAY TO THE NEXT, IT'S A GIGANTIC PUZZLE, AND YOU'RE JUST TRYING TO GET ANY LITTLE PIECE TO PUT IT TOGETHER, SO I WANT SOMETHING CONCRETE.

I WANT SOMETHING THAT'S A FACT.

IN SEARCH OF HARD EVIDENCE, DETECTIVE SMITH PULLS ALICIA'S CELLPHONE RECORDS.

INTELLIGENCE ANALYST STEPHANIE SMITH TRAWLS THROUGH HUNDREDS OF NUMBERS IN ALICIA'S CALL HISTORY.

HEY, STEPH.

ONE PROBLEM LIED THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE ALICIA'S TELEPHONE.

OTHERWISE, WE COULD'VE JUST PICKED IT UP AND LOOKED AND FOUND HER SUBSCRIBERS, AND IT WOULD'VE MADE THE JOB A LITTLE BIT EASIER.

SO THAT'S WHY WE HAD TO REACH TO THE LOCAL PHONE COMPANIES AND DO THAT THROUGH SUBPOENA TO GET THAT INFORMATION.

KEEP GOING.

THERE.

OKAY.

SATURDAY, THE 21st OF AUGUST --

THAT'S THE DAY SHE DISAPPEARED --

SENT TO ALICIA AT 2:25 P.M.

"WHAT TIME YOU WANT ME TO PICK YOU UP?"

SOMEONE IS TRYING TO ARRANGE A MEETING WITH ALICIA.

I'M TRYING TO PUT THE PIECES TOGETHER IN ALL OF THIS, HOPING THAT SOMETHING IS GOING TO COME OUT IN THESE TEXT MESSAGES ON WHO'S COMING TO PICK HER UP.

WHAT ABOUT THIS RIGHT HERE?

STEPHANIE WAS ABLE TO LOCATE TEXT MESSAGES OF A PARTY BEING SET UP DURING THAT SATURDAY, THE 21st OF AUGUST.

ULTIMATELY, WHAT WE WANT TO DO IS FOUND OUT WHOSE NAME GOES WITH THIS PHONE.

WHO'S ON THE OTHER END OF THIS PHONE NUMBER?

"I HAVE FIVE BOTTLES, FIVE CASES OF BEER, AND A HOUSE."

THE CELLPHONE RECORDS TOGETHER WITH MARISSA'S STATEMENT CONFIRM THAT ALICIA DID BELIEVE SHE WAS GOING TO A PARTY ON THE NIGHT SHE WENT MISSING.

BUT WAS THE CONTACT WHO INVITED ALICIA OUT THE SAME CONTACT WHO SHOWED UP TO COLLECT HER?

SO WE KNOW SHE'S GOING TO A PARTY.

WHAT TIME DID ALICIA LEAVE THE HOUSE?

AROUND 11:00 P.M.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE SAME CONTACT.

SO WE JUST NEED TO FIND --

THERE, 11:02 P.M.

THE 11:02 MESSAGE IS FROM THE SAME CONTACT WHO HAD BEEN TEXTING ALICIA ALL DAY, BUT RIGHT NOW, POLICE DON'T HAVE A NAME.

I'LL SEE YOU IN AN HOUR.

LOVE YOU.

BYE!

ALL DETECTIVES KNOW IS THE PERSON TEXTING IS INSIDE A DARK SUV.

MARISSA HAS TOLD POLICE SHE SPOKE ON THE PHONE WITH ALICIA,

BUT ONLY AS SHE WAS LEAVING THE HOUSE.

I'LL BE THERE IN FIVE.

OKAY.

THE NEIGHBOR CONFIRMS THAT ALICIA HAD HUNG UP BEFORE SHE REACHED THE VEHICLE.

WHERE ARE WE GOING?

FORTY MINUTES LATER, ALICIA'S PHONE IS SWITCHED OFF.

AT THAT POINT, WE KNEW SHE LEFT WITH SOMEBODY, BUT WE DIDN'T KNOW WHO THAT WAS.

AT THAT POINT, WE KNEW SHE LEFT WITH SOMEBODY,

JESUS!

THREE DAYS AFTER LEAVING HER GREAT BEND HOME FOR A PARTY, ALICIA DEBOLT HAS BEEN FOUND DEAD ON THE EDGE OF TOWN.

POLICE IDENTIFY A STRING OF TEXT MESSAGES LURING ALICIA OUT THE NIGHT SHE DISAPPEARED.

HEY, HEATHER. HEY, IT'S STEPH.

POLICE DON'T KNOW WHO'D BEEN SENDING THE TEXTS UNTIL NOW.

YEAH, I GOT US A NAME FOR THOSE TEXT MESSAGES.

IT'S LONGORIA, ADAM LONGORIA.

IT'S ADAM LONGORIA. IT'S HIS PHONE.

HE'S THE ONE SENDING THOSE TEXT MESSAGES.

HE'S THE ONE SETTING UP THIS PARTY.

ADAM LONGORIA, ALSO KNOWN AROUND TOWN AS ROCCO, IS THE MAN WHO ASKED IVAN RAMIREZ TO GIVE HIM AN ALIBI FOR THE NIGHT OF ALICIA'S DISAPPEARANCE.

IMMEDIATELY, DETECTIVE SMITH HEADS OUT TO FIND HIM, BUT THE ONLY ONE HOME IS HIS GIRLFRIEND, EVA.

GOOD MORNING. GREAT BEND POLICE, MA'AM.

I'M LOOKING FOR ADAM LONGORIA.

HE'S NOT HERE RIGHT NOW, WON'T BE BACK UNTIL LATE.

I NEED TO SPEAK WITH HIM. IT'S A MATTER OF SOME URGENCY.

MAYBE TELL HIM TO COME SEE ME.

IS THIS YOUR CAR, MA'AM?

YEAH.

MAYBE HE COULD DROP BY IN THE MORNING.

LONGORIA IS NOW A SUSPECT, BUT THE EVIDENCE AGAINST HIM IS ONLY CIRCUMSTANTIAL.

THE NEXT DAY, HE SHOWS UP AT THE POLICE STATION VOLUNTARILY.

WHAT?

ARE YOU SAYING I TEXTED THAT GIRL?

YOU TELL HER THERE'S A PARTY.

YOU TELL HER YOU'RE GOING TO BRING BOOZE.

AT 11:00 P.M., YOU SEND HER A MESSAGE SAYING, "I'M HERE."

COME ON.

AND THEN YOU TALK RAMIREZ INTO FAKING AN ALIBI.

YOU'RE MAKING A MISTAKE, OKAY?

I TOLD YOU, TALK TO RAMIREZ.

HE'S TWISTING EVERYTHING.

THIS AIN'T GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH RAMIREZ.

YEAH, WELL, MAYBE IT DOES.

MAYBE WE WAS FOOLING AROUND.

MAYBE HE ASKED ME TO SEND HER THOSE TEXTS.

HE ASKED YOU?

I MEAN, HE'S PUTTING ALL THIS PRESSURE ON IVAN AND JUST KIND OF PUSHING THE BLAME TOWARDS HIM.

DO YOU MIND?

HELLO?

THEY'VE BEEN ASKING ABOUT THE CAR, ADAM.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

I'LL BE RIGHT OVER.

DON'T DO NOTHING.

LISTEN, IT'S BEEN NICE, BUT I GOT TO GET OUT OF HERE.

I STILL HAVE SOME QUESTION FOR YOU.

I GOT NOTHING TO SAY TO YOU.

ULTIMATELY, STILL AT THIS POINT, WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TO CHARGE ADAM LONGORIA, SO HE'S FREE TO GO.

HE'S FREE TO LEAVE.

IT'S VERY FRUSTRATING.

WITH LONGORIA REFUSING TO SPEAK, DETECTIVE SMITH CALLS IN ONE MORE WITNESS --

HIS GIRLFRIEND, EVA.

THE NIGHT SHE WENT MISSING, ADAM WENT OUT REALLY LATE AND HE DIDN'T COME BACK TILL EARLY THE NEXT MORNING.

HE SAID, "IF YOU LOVE ME, YOU'LL DO SOMETHING FOR ME."

WHAT DID HE WANT YOU TO DO?

HIS T-SHIRT SMELLED OF GAS.

HE WANTED ME TO GET RID OF IT.

WE TORE IT UP. I TOOK A CAR, AND I THREW IT OUT IN THE STREET.

YOU KNOW, SHE LOVED HIM AND HE WAS TELLING HER HE DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

AND I THINK SHE WAS SCARED OF HIM.

I THINK SHE WAS VULNERABLE.

HE MADE ME DO IT.

HE MADE ME.

NOW WE HAVE ALL THESE DIFFERENT THINGS THAT ARE ADDING UP, ALL THESE DIFFERENT PIECES OF THE PUZZLE THAT ARE FINALLY COMING TOGETHER.

AND IT'S HUGE.

THE NEXT MORNING, A CALL COMES IN THAT WE'VE GOT A STOLEN VEHICLE.

ADAM LONGORIA MATCHES THE DESCRIPTION OF A MAN BEHAVING SUSPICIOUSLY CLOSE TO WHERE THE STOLEN CAR IS PARKED.

IF THAT WAS INDEED HIM, IT WOULD BECOME HIS BIGGEST MISTAKE.

IF THAT WAS INDEED HIM, IT WOULD BECOME HIS BIGGEST MISTAKE.

36-YEAR-OLD ADAM LONGORIA IS NOW THE PRIME SUSPECT IN THE HOMICIDE OF 14-YEAR-OLD ALICIA DEBOLT.

HE'S ALSO SUSPECTED OF STEALING A CAR,

WHICH IS NOW SPOTTED 150 MILES EAST OF GREAT BEND.

THE VEHICLE WAS LOCATED BY A TROOPER FROM THE KANSAS HIGHWAY PATROL IN SALINE COUNTY.

THE CAR THIEF IS ADAM LONGORIA.

THE TROOPER WAS ABLE TO STOP THE VEHICLE AND SUBSEQUENTLY ARRESTED MR. LONGORIA DRIVING THE VEHICLE.

ADAM LONGORIA IS BROUGHT BACK TO THE GREAT BEND POLICE STATION.

THIS TIME, WE HAVE CHARGES AGAINST HIM.

WE HAVE THE VEHICLE THEFT AGAINST HIM, SO WE'RE ABLE TO COLLECT FORENSICS FROM HIM.

THE KANSAS BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION SECURED A SEARCH WARRANT.

THERE WERE BLOOD, DNA SAMPLES, AND HAIR EVIDENCE THAT WAS TAKEN FROM MR. LONGORIA'S PERSON.

LONGORIA STILL INSISTS HE ONLY EVER TEXTED ALICIA BECAUSE IVAN RAMIREZ ASKED HIM TO.

MR. LONGORIA, I WANT TO GO THROUGH THIS AGAIN WITH YOU.

I KEEP SAYING IT, BUT IT'S LIKE, HELLO, NO ONE IS LISTENING!

WE JUST GOT THE DATA ON YOUR CELLPHONE, AND GUESS WHAT.

IT'S LIGHTING UP THE SAME TOWER AS ALICIA'S.

WE KNOW YOU WERE WITH HER THAT NIGHT.

THIS IS JUST B.S.

I FELT HE'S A LIAR.

HE WAS LYING TO US.

THERE WAS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND HE'S THE ONE THAT WAS RESPONSIBLE.

HE WAS CREATING HIS OWN LITTLE WEB OF LIES.

ONE LIE LEADS TO ANOTHER LIE LEADS TO ANOTHER LIE.

YOU THINK YOU'RE SO CLEVER.

SURVEILLANCE FOOTAGE NOW REVEALS THAT, JUST AFTER MIDNIGHT ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 21st, LONGORIA BUYS A GAS CAN AND FILLS IT UP.

MUST HAVE BEEN GASOLINE.

PEOPLE DON'T JUST BURN LIKE THAT.

AN EMPTY GAS CAN IS ALSO FOUND NEAR ALICIA'S REMAINS.

WE'VE GOT ALL THE TEXT MESSAGES.

WE'VE GOT THE INFORMATION FROM THE DATA FROM THE CELLPHONES ON THE TOWERS.

WE'RE ALSO ABLE TO FIND THE PIECES OF THE T-SHIRT OF ADAM LONGORIA'S THAT WERE CAST OUT THE WINDOW BY EVA, AND THEN WE HAVE THE DARK-COLORED SUV THAT BELONGS TO EVA THAT ADAM WAS DRIVING AROUND, AS WELL.

THE SUV IS ITSELF A POTENTIAL CRIME SCENE.

THE LABORATORY PEOPLE WERE ABLE TO CONFIRM DNA SAMPLES, MIXED SAMPLES OF BODY FLUIDS, BOTH FROM MR. LONGORIA AND MS. DEBOLT.

WE'VE GOT HIM. WE'VE GOT HIM.

ADAM LONGORIA FIRST MET ALICIA AT A PARTY A FEW WEEKS EARLIER.

HE SOON BEGAN GROOMING THE 14-YEAR-OLD WITH INAPPROPRIATE TEXTS.

"WAKE UP, SLEEPING BEAUTY."

JUDGING BY THE TEXT MESSAGES, I THINK HE WAS OBSESSED WITH HER.

"WHAT YOU DOING, HOT STUFF?"

THAT SHOWS A LOT OF INTEREST IN A 14-YEAR-OLD GIRL.

"WHEN DO YOU WANT TO, AND ARE YOU GOING TO BE MY DATE?"

I THINK HE WANTED TO DATE HER, AND I DON'T THINK THE FEELINGS WERE MUTUAL.

"WE ARE JUST FRIENDS."

"HOW ABOUT TONIGHT?"

ALICIA KNEW THAT LONGORIA HAD COME TO PICK HER UP, BUT HE TRICKED HER INTO THINKING IVAN RAMIREZ AND OTHER FRIENDS WOULD ALSO BE IN THE CAR.

OKAY, YEAH.

I'LL BE THERE IN FIVE.

WHERE'S IVAN?

DON'T WORRY. YOU'LL SEE HIM AND THE OTHERS.

JUST JUMP IN. COME ON.

LET'S GO.

LONGORIA HAD SET A TRAP.

THERE WAS NO PARTY AND NO PLAN TO PICK UP ANYONE ELSE.

HE WAS OBSESSED WITH HER.

SHE WOULDN'T GIVE INTO HIM, AND IT MADE HIM MAD.

IT FRUSTRATED HIM.

I THINK HE WAS JUST INFATUATED WITH THE GIRL, AND HE WANTED TO HAVE SEXUAL INTERCOURSE WITH HER.

AND WHEN HE COULDN'T GET HER TO BASICALLY GIVE IN TO HIS DESIRES, THAT'S WHEN HE DECIDED THAT HE'D KILL HER.

IN THE END, ADAM LONGORIA WAS CHARGED WITH KIDNAPPING, SEXUAL ASSAULT, AND MURDER OF ALICIA DEBOLT.

ON APRIL 6th, 2012, ADAM LONGORIA IS CONVICTED OF CAPITAL MURDER AND SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON WITHOUT PAROLE.

I REMEMBER HIS FISTS ON THE TABLE AND THINKING, "THOSE ARE THE HANDS THAT KILLED ALICIA," YOU KNOW?

HEATHER SMITH PUT A LOT OF EXTRA WORK INTO THE CASE.

SHE SPENT NIGHTS AWAY FROM HER KIDS LOOKING FOR EVIDENCE.

SHE'S THE ONE THAT GOT US HERE -- AMAZING WOMAN.

I THINK HE'S IN THE PLACE THAT HE NEEDS TO BE, LOCKED UP, PUT AWAY.

HE HAD THAT ATTITUDE ABOUT HIM THAT HE WAS BETTER THAN EVERYBODY ELSE AND THAT HE THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO GET AWAY WITH IT.

LOTS OF TIMES, I'D SAY, "WHAT IF?

WHAT IF I WOULD'VE TOLD HER NO? WHAT IF I WOULD'VE WENT OUT AND SEEN WHO SHE WAS GETTING IN THE CAR WITH?

WHAT IF I WOULDN'T HAD BEEN SO TIRED?"

IT'S BEEN A FEW YEARS SINCE THE FAMILY LOST ALICIA.

SOMETIMES I LIKE TO GO DOWN TO ALICIA'S GRAVESITE AND JUST TALK TO HER.

IT'S VERY HELPFUL SOMETIMES WHEN I'M FEELING VERY DEPRESSED.

IT'S VERY PEACEFUL OUT WHERE SHE IS.

SHE WAS MY WORLD.
