Carolyn and Ginger did not take part in the rapes, but it is not known if they were involved in the murders. After hours or days of being raped the victims were taken outside of the car and shot. All of the victims were shot with the same guns and found nude on the side of the road or in the McCrary family home.
In June of 1972, the family was arrested after they robbed a grocery store and shot a police officer. The wounded officer gave a description of the getaway car and the robbers, which led to their arrest.
