SOFIA SILVA, KRISTIN AND KATI LISK, ALICIA SHOWALTER REYNOLDS
Richard Marc Evonitz died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Thursday, June 27, afterfleeing from police through three states. Evonitz lured a 15 year old girl from her friend's lawnby posing as a magazine salesman. Once she was close enough, he pulled a gun and forced herinto a large rubber storage box in his trunk, drove her to his apartment, carried the box with herin it into his bedroom where he tied her up in a bondage device attached to his bed and assaultedher. When Evonitz passed out or over-confidentially drifted off to sleep, the girlescaped. Four earlier victims did not escape and authorities now have evidence linkingEvonitz with the 1996 kidnapping and murder of Sofia Silva, 16, and the 1997 kidnapping and murdersof sisters Kristin and Kati Lisk, 15 and 12. These crimes all occurred in SpotsylvaniaCounty, VA, and DNA evidence has established that the same person killed all three girls. There is also evidence linking Evonitz with the 1996 abduction and murder of student AliciaShowalter Reynolds.
