Pike was involved in a nasty love-triangle murder. IIRC, she and a couple of friends lured her rival to a secluded area, bashed the girl’s brains in while she begged for mercy, carved a pentagram on her chest, and Pike kept a piece of the girl’s skull as a souvenir.
The fact that she is still alive (along with the Christianson/Newsom murderers) is prime evidence that our “justice system” is all system and very little justice.
Thanks. I was going to add this to the post if no one else had.
