McGee, KY (The Weekly Vice) - Jackson County High School students, Corinne Schwab and Ashley Sams, both 18, and an unnamed 17-year-old girl were jailed Tuesday after they allegedly tried to push a classmate off of a cliff because she is a lesbian.
According to Kentucky State Police, the three girls were supposedly taking the victim to a job interview when they instead took her to Flat Lick Falls against her will. The foursome had reportedly been best friends since the sixth grade.
Investigators say the girls then beat the teen because of her sexual orientation, then attempted to push her over a cliff, which would have resulted in her death.
The victim was able to escape by swinging a stick at the girls before fleeing the area to search for help. The girls caught up with her and tried to force her back into the car, but let her go on the promise she would not tell anyone what had happened.
The victim was able to record a video of the attack on her cell phone, which reportedly backs up the girl's claim that the attack was based on her sexual orientation.
The teens who are charged say the attack was meant to be a prank, however detectives allege the evidence does not support that claim.
Schwab and Sams were booked into the Jackson County Jail and charged with kidnapping and criminal attempt to commit murder. They were both released on bond until their court dates.
The 17-year-old juvenile remains jailed and is due in court Thursday.
This incident happened on a National Day of Silence for those who are gay.
