On 22 October, 1966, Robert Sims, his wife, Helen, and their 12-year-old daughter, Joy, were at home listening to a college football game between Florida State University and Mississippi State. The couple had two older teenage daughters, Jeanie and Judy, who were both out babysitting.
Jeanie arrived home that night at around 23:00 and was horrified to discover that her parents and younger sister, Joy, had been brutally murdered. All three had been bound and their mouths stuffed with stockings. Robert and Helen had been blindfolded and shot dead while Joy was raped and stabbed six times before being shot in the head. Helen was miraculously still clinging to life but fell into a coma before she could give any information as to who could have done such a thing to a family who had seemingly no enemies.
Among a few suspects were a teenage couple who had stood out to authorities but they were never named due to never being made official suspects but authorities recall them acting quite odd and being strangely obsessed with the investigation. The case still remains unsolved today.

The smell of engine oil and old wood brought back a host of memories for Judy as she clambered up the ladder to the upper level of one of the many barns at Hopps farm, she used to play cops and robbers with her siblings all the time as a kit but right now the twenty six year old bunny needed a moment to relax in the barn. It had been a very hectic day, as soon as she stepped off the train at Bunnyburrow station it had been a non stop series of hugs, catching up with relatives and being overstuffed with the mountains of food that had been prepared for the massive party had arrived from Zootopia including; herself, Nick, Luna, Marian, Robin, Little John, Jack and Skye.
“I think she was just tired, like a flower that gives joy and beauty to the world, and then wilts away. I just want to send her off as she would have wanted to go - bright and lovely. My mother had that wild impatient streak to live. I wish you’d mention the joy she had for life. That’s what she gave me. It was her love of life that carried her through everything. The middle of the road was never for her. It bored her. She wanted the pinnacle of excitement. If she was happy, she wasn’t just happy; she was ecstatic. And when she was sad, she was sadder than anybody. She lived eighty lives in one. And yet I thought she would outlive us all. She was a great star and a great talent and for the rest of my life I will be proud to be Judy Garland’s daughter. She always told me I was living proof that she was a good woman and I intend to live up to that. We loved our mother very much, and it was a love we shared with millions of people. The only thing that comforts us now is the thought that nothing can destroy that love, or the legend she created. To us, that was, and always will be, a beautiful thing.”
