The Disappearance of Lauria Bible and Ashley Freeman
Lauria Jaylene Bible, born April 18, 1983, and Ashley Renae Freeman, born December 29, 1983, were teenagers who disappeared between the evening of December 29 and the early morning hours of December 30, 1999, from the Freeman home in Welch, Oklahoma.
On December 29, 1999, high school friends Lauria Bible and Ashley Freeman spent the evening together celebrating Freeman's sixteenth birthday. Bible received permission from her parents to spend the night at Freeman's home. Earlier that day, the girls had spent time at a local pizzeria, Vinita Pizza Restaurant, with Freeman's mother, Kathy.

At approximately 5:30 a.m. on December 30, 1999, a couple of good samaritans driving by on their commute to work called 911 to report that the Freeman home was engulfed in flames; law enforcement determined the fire was set by an arsonist.
