She owned her own business, which was related to helping the elderly. She graduated high school in Denver, Colorado.

"Chris" was murdered in her duplex in a quiet neighborhood. Mark Roller had been watching her for some time and knew her habits. Mark had made friends with her dog and knew that the dog was let out the front door of her duplex every night. Mark caught the dog and put him in Chris's backyard. When the dog didn't return when Chris called, she stepped out the door, where Mark was waiting for her with a rock in his hand. He hit Chris in the head and dragged her back inside where he robbed and raped her and then bludgeoned her to death. The police said she put up a good fight!

Mark Roller pled guilty to Capital Murder. He was sentenced to life without parole - 40 years.
