To the people of Olney, Texas, 39 year-old Faryion Wardrip was an upright citizen-a happily married man, a valued employee, and a respected Sunday school teacher. In January, 1999, investigators reviewing the files of 3 unsolved murders dating back 15 years came across information linking Wardrip to the female victims-Terry Sims who was bound, raped and stabbed to death. Toni Gibbs slashed and sexually assaulted and left in a bus shelter and Ellen Blau who disappeared after a workshift and her decomposing body found a month later. Clever police snared a DNA sample from Wardrip which matched the DNA found with Terry Sims. Wardrip then confessed to the three murders and 1 more-Debra Taylor. Wardrip is also a suspect in 10 other murders but it was Sim's murder that made him eligible for the death penalty.
