OVERRIDE

In the Name of Satan

A True Story of Human Sacrifice, Devil Worship, and Murder

St. Martin's True Crime Classics

A lovely teenage girl's final goodbye...

"I love you and I'm going to bed," were the last words Elyse Pahler ever said to her parents. But she would never dream again, for the pretty blond 15-year-old was about to begin a walking nightmare that would end in her grisly stabbing murder.

Three depraved schoolboys' deadly fantasies...

Later that night Elyse slipped out of her parent's house for a bit of forbidden fun. She never suspected that three local boys - two of whom rode the school bus with her - were outside in the dark waiting...waiting to perform a human sacrifice - in the name of Satan.

An unspeakable atrocity that stunned a nation...

The DA claims that teenagers Royce Casey, Jacob Delashmutt, and Joe Fiorella - all in a band called Hatred - believed they had found the ultimate offering to make to the Prince of Darkness. They would sacrifice an innocent young girl, a virgin. Prosecutors say the three boys dragged a terrified Elyse to a deserted area they believed was the devil's altar, where, after being drugged, and attacked, she died of multiple stab wounds.

For eight months Elyse's body lay hidden in a eucalyptus grove until an unexpected tip to police revealed the ghastly crime. In The Name of Satan is an unthinkable American tragedy, a horrifying voyage into deepest evil imaginable.
