In the picturesque ski town of Breckenridge, Colorado, the lives of Annette Schnee, 21, and Bobbie Jo Oberholtzer, 29, were tragically cut short in 1982. Initially thought to be separate incidents, detectives made a crucial connection between the two murders through an orange sock discovered near Oberholtzer’s crime scene, which matched a sock found on Schnee. However, despite this link, the case soon grew cold, leaving the families and investigators grappling with unanswered questions.
