Teenagers Rachel Wade and Sarah Ludemann hated each others guts. They were both in what they thought was a relationship with a guy named Josh Camacho, who encouraged them to fight over over him. Their feud started on social media then escalated to threatening phone calls and culminated in a violent confrontation that would leave one of them dead.
A dispute over a fence line between neighbours, Kevin Skeyhill and Darren Lorke, escalated when punches were thrown. Alcohol and some covert surveillance exasperated the situation to the point where a fake gun and knife led to murder.
