Broken Hearts Murder- The Michele Avila Story

Broken Hearts Murder- The Michele Avila Story


Jealous Best Friend Plots Michele Avila's Murder 

In 1985, Michele Avila, a 17-year-old with an illegal glow, fell victim to a chilling plot spun by her jealous best friend, Karen Severson, and Severson's boyfriend, Kenneth Kimes—a smooth criminal duo. Led by bodily charm, Michele was lured to a remote spot, where Kimes committed the murder at Severson's insistence.

The case stayed unresolved until the '90s when Severson's confession led to Kimes' life sentence for murder and conspiracy. This tragic saga starkly portrayed the devastating fallout of jealousy and manipulation.
