On April 4, serial killer Tommy Lynn Sells broke into the trailer home of a 32-year-old woman in Gibson County, Tenn., 75 miles northeast of Memphis. He raped and stabbed the woman to death, then stabbed to death her 8-year-old daughter.
In the wee hours of December 31, 1999, serial killer Tommy Lynn Sells entered a Texas bedroom where Katy Harris, 13, and Krystal Surles, 10, were sleeping. Krystal watched as Tommy fatally slit Katy’s throat, and then went after her. She played dead until he was gone, and later helped apprehend him.
