Richard Hamilton and Anthony Wainwright escaped from a North Carolina prison, stole guns and a Cadillac and traveled to Florida. On April 27, 1994, the car overheated in Lake City, FL, and the two kidnapped Carmen Gayheart at gunpoint from a Winn-Dixie parking lot and stole her Ford Bronco. The two raped, strangled, and shot Gayheart twice in the back of the head.
