    Michael Forrest Thornton


    Facts of the Crime:

    Michael Thornton and Janeen Snyder were convicted of kidnapping, torturing, sexually abusing and killing 16-year-old Michelle Curran on April 17, 2001. Two other teenage girls testified at the trial of how Snyder lured them to a hotel and Thornton raped them. Snyder also confessed to killing a 14-year-old girl who had been missing for over five years. Snyder was a friend of Thornton’s daughter and moved in with him after having problems with her own family. Thornton’s former wife testified to overhearing him discuss how he had killed a young girl and dismembered her body before throwing it in the ocean.

    Thornton and Snyder were sentenced to death on September 7, 2006 in Riverside County.
