They say that Grace planned for Best to break into her parents’ bedroom and slit their throats in their sleep. She had supposedly been planning this act for over a month.
According to media reports Dillman turned off the alarm at her home so her boyfriend could get inside undetected. She was reportedly holding a flashlight and told Best to hurry up before her father woke up. He was holding a kitchen knife in his hand, but it was during this first few seconds that Mr. Dillman heard them whispering and woke up.
