Idaho Offenders

Brian Lee Draper and Tory Michael Adamcik

Tory Adamcik

Brian and Tory were incarcerated at age 16 for the September 2006 stabbing murder of their classmate Cassie Stoddart. They both blamed each other for the crime and were sentenced to life without the possibility of parole in 2007.

Draper pinned the murder on Adamcik, while Adamcik claimed that Draper did it all and cited his history of depression and his plan for several years to commit murder. An Idaho State Journal article about Draper’s confession in the Pocatello trial reports:  “Breathing heavily and speaking through tears, Brian Draper told police how Torey Adamcik allegedly moved through the pitch-black home, approached Cassie Jo Stoddart and stabbed her to death. The scene from Draper’s Sept. 27 interrogation – titled “The Confession” By Bannock County Sheriff’s detectives – was played for jurors during the defendant’s murder trial. During the video, Draper admitted he and Adamcik were there when Stoddart was murdered but denied ever stabbing her. Later, jurors saw a recording of a Sept. 28 interrogation, during which Draper confessed to stabbing Stoddart four or five times. Draper, his parents and law enforcement officers were huddled in a small interview room at the Bannock County Sheriff’s Office during the Sept. 27 interrogation. It was then that Draper, who previously offered officers two different alibis, admitted he and Adamcik were involved in Stoddart’s murder. wanted to tell officers the truth about what happened. Draper described to police the clothing, masks and knives they pulled from Adamcik’s car prior to entering the residence in northeast Bannock County where Stoddart was house-sitting. He also told them of how he and Adamcik disposed of the items in the Black Rock Canyon area later that night. The recording of the Sept. 27 interrogation, Draper’s third with police, was introduced during the continuing testimony of Bannock County Sheriff’s Detective Andy Thomas, who was on the stand when Wednesday’s proceedings ended. During the interrogation, Thomas and Idaho State Police Detective Lt. John Ganske tell Draper they believe there is more to the story he told Sept. 27. “Are you sure you didn’t stab (Stoddart)?” Thomas asks Draper in the video. “I know you didn’t want to stab her, but does Torey at any time make you stab her?” About two more minutes of similar questioning passed and Draper finally gasps a faint “yes,” admitting he stabbed Stoddart. Draper then tells the detectives he stabbed her three or four times at the behest of Adamcik. “(Adamcik) came over and says, ‘Make sure she is dead. You need to stab her,'” Draper said during the Sept. 28 interrogation. Draper and Adamcik were arrested Sept. 27, just three days after Stoddart’s body was found. They were both charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. Stoddart was stabbed to death Sept. 22 while house-sitting for relatives and was found two days later when they returned home. Both defendants and Stoddart were 16-year-old juniors at Pocatello High School when the murder occurred. ”

  • Doodle

    Here’s hoping each boy become a b—- to the prison population.

    • JackDRatt

      Good one. That is really a most viable solution. You should become a judge or prison warden. And be sure to bring along lots of soap.

  • Bonnie Russell

    For the safety of others, they both need to die in prison. They are just evil.

    • JackDRatt

      And you determined this by knowing them or by what you heard and saw on telly and in periodicals? Do you truly know what makes you tick? If so, then I would not doubt you have insight toward what makes up their unique and individual mental psyches.

  • Heather

    Ridiculous. This sick little killer wants a new trial? I don’t like the death penalty but I saw the video tape. Brian definitely deserves the death penalty, and Torey at least should spend life behind bars as someone’s “girlfriend”..how dare this freak put the mother of Cassie through this again.

    • JackDRatt

      You do not like the death penalty, yet you stand (hide) behind it when it is convenient for you to do so? How can you rightfully determine Brian deserves the death penalty while Torey should be someone’s “girlfriend” behind bars? Would you be willing to throw the switch to put Brian to death? Would you enjoy watching Torey’s being raped, perhaps even sell popcorn to both events? Could you live with yourself afterwards? I truly doubt you can live with yourself as it is, so why not outwardly judge in lieu of examining yourself!? And why do I suspect you have the hots for Torey and hide them with your condemning words against him?

      • http://www.facebook.com/edgar.aguilar.90 Edgar Aguilar

        On both accounts, hell yes!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’d flip the switch on both their lives, and I wouldn’t hesitate in a second. They were remorseless, and they took her life without a care in the world except to fulfill some cheap thrill. is that what Cassie’s life was about? So much time is spent crying for these people who commit crimes, where are the victims rights? I’d bring back the guillotine, and let the hatchet come downn, and yes, I would sit and bring popcorn to watch.

        • Myco Sys

          Then what separates you from them? You are just the same. But without the undeveloped and disinhibited mind of a child to explain your shortcomings.

          • Moocows

            One is motivated to kill by sheer pleasure and thrill and the other is motivated by revenge, pain, and loss. I would say that the latters incentives are more redeemable than the formers.

  • Jim F.

    Are you kidding me ? HIS punishment is cruel ? Well maybe the sentence should be changed so that he just gets stabbed 30 or 40 times until dead. Cassie’s mother should not have to constantly be fighting to uphold the small measure of justice that has been rendered. Although I sometimes lean toward being somewhat of an agnostic, I pray for her and hope that some moments of comfort find their way to her. She is so much stronger than I ever could be.

    • JackDRatt

      People hate the death penalty, yet they are for it in convenient situations. Others are agnostic, yet the pray – to whom? Others sometimes lean toward being somewhat of an agnostic; when does this occur? When the time and situation calls for it? What about the other times? Incredible how so many are uncertain about themselves except when it comes to passing judgmental opinions against others, during which they “sometimes lean” or “hate the death penalty, but…!” So many have “but” faces, and betray themselves with their words. In a sense, if ignorance were a blessing, these people would be Saints.
      Regardless, I have responded to practically everyone’s comments here. If anyone is offended by what I said, then perhaps that person should ask him-/herself ‘why’.

  • Johan Wintermark

    I´m always surprised to see people actually feeling sorry for the predators. In Sweden, these two would have spent 5 yrs behind bars and then walked free. I wonder if the parents of Draper and Adamcik would have wanted that kind of pseudojustice if they were the ones victimized.

    • JackDRatt

      Good point, but I think you are far from being fully informed. Base your opinions on a full arsenal of fact, not on mere tidbits of conecture stinging with bias. We have enough poison in the world, thank you very much.

      • Cpu

        Heh, you have nothing better to do than antagonize all these people for posting their opinions. British douchebag.

  • Mr. Batman

    Both Brian and Tory planed and executed their plan to murder Cassie Stoddart. And now one of them miserable little F#^K’s is asking to have his sentence vacated and for a new trial. Claiming his life sentence is cruel and that the jury was given improper instructions. Maybe his parents would feel a bit differently if it was their kid rotting in the ground after two friends stabbed him to death. Well I guess there is always the possibility he might piss another prisoner off with a shank. My self I think being stabbed to death by your friends and then left for dead, just for fun is truly cruel. As for the sentence they got I think life in prison was not enough, they needed to be buried on prison grounds with in the prison walls.

    • JackDRatt

      I possess neither the right nor power to concur with your conclusion vis-a-vis Brian and Torey’s planning and executing their plan to murder Ms. Stoddart. I disagree totally with what you say, but I defend until death your undeniable right to say it. Nevertheless, if and when that time arrives to bury these lads on prison grounds, I have no doubt you shall crave to be in attendance, complete with a full bladder, ready to pounce and consecrate their final resting places with your own brand of holy water. I only ask you to please let me know when this time arrives so I can supply you with a gold-plated shovel for you to inter your own transgressions, right along with them. Not to worry; no one shall ever know. It shall be your little secret. Wink, wink.

      • jen

        Your an idiot. Let me guess, your either a pedifile or have similar intention as these two boys. You should be put down yourself like a sick dog.

  • Just Me

    I feel so badly for her mother, other families and friends for having to listen to this. Both of these monsters’ parents are standing beside them, claiming that these actions don’t define their mutant spawn. Um, I’m sorry, but I think the people who aren’t gripping reality here are them. How they can claim sympathy for Cassie’s family when one of their wayward sperm byproducts is now asserting that his rights were violated is appalling. I have mixed feelings about the death penalty in general, but in this case, I think it would have been not only appropriate but the only way we are ever going to be able to stop hearing from these scum.

    • Anonymous

      Thank you for your support of victims.

    • JackDRatt

      Incredible how you are most capable of describing the reality for another person, and comparing it with your own. And how judgmental you are, again in the name of righteousness. “Monsters”, “mutant spawn”, “wayward sperm by-products”, “scum”? Please advise me as to when I shall have to start praying to you. For someone who is so sure about himself and his personal convictions, your expressing your “mixed feelings about the death penalty in general” is nothing short of a self-created safety net under which you hide your responsibility to be yourself. You say as much in your comment where “…it would have been not only appropriate but the only way we are ever going to be able to stop hearing from these scum.” You make concessions to suit your purpose, and justify it by manipulatively appeasing to the family of this murdered lass. Until a person ceases at perceiving himself (or herself) as being a victim, healing can never commence, and anything else is nothing short of a dream designed to protect us and hide us from our moral obligation to ourselves and to society as a whole. However, your comments impress me into believing you are far above the rest of us. With this power you have, I ask but one thing: Dona nobis pacem.

      • Just Me

        Here’s the good news. In reading your frequent, lengthy and rambling responses, I’ve come up with just one word to describe you- troll. I will no longer be feeding you.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002594310154 Jeff Johnson

    This murder shouldn’t be a surprise in a society where murder and horror are a form of entertainment. When they murdered Cassie, they were not looking for sex, money, to get even, etc… they were doing it purely for entertainment.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002594310154 Jeff Johnson

      We walked in their shoes, did you see the video those two boys made? It shows their steps clearly. They expressed their motivations.

      I believe I have been able to fix this tech issue – posts with your IP should be all gone – if not please let me know and so sorry that my learning curve on Disqus to moderate our comment sections allowed this for a time.

  • Dhage Nadha

    I saw the video these boys made. They are both guilty of the most heinous of crimes; a senseless killing just to give themselves a feeling of power. And the victim was a beautiful young female with every expectation to look forward to a long and productive life. They stalked and killed her like an animal. I think they should receive the death penalty, but hopefully, they will live long miserable lives in prison. The mother of Torey Adamcik is deluded if she thinks she will convince anyone, let alone a panel of judges, that her little boy was innocent! Brian Draper’s parents are equally oblivious to the absolute evil they spawned. The parents should be thrown in jail for raising such evil boys.

    • JackDRatt

      “Hopefully”? “The parents should be thrown in jail for raising such evil boys.”? Now who is being heinous? Perhaps you, too, should be incarcerated for the rest of your “miserable” life instead of spewing your venomous banter. I shall, however, concede one matter in your favour: congratulations on being able to determine in absentia how the Draper lad is the spawn of evil. It pleases me you have the incredible ability to make such a determination sans knowing the full stories. Now, just as quick: what can you tell me about my neighbour? Goodness knows you have all the answers.
      I really have to commend those of you who are so expediently judgmental. How I am ever so elated I am not among your number.

    • JackDRatt

      Everyone in this case is a victim, be they direct or indirect; on the side of the murdered lass or the lads who were found guilty of this unspeakable crime. Tell me, if you will, if you can: Which precise victims are you referring to, and how can you rightfully refer to some while deliberately omitting the others? How did you manage to come across such incredible power?

      • Anonymous

        Oh everybody is a victim so nobody is a victim? Everybody is guilty so nobody is guilty? By all means spread the guilt. Hey why don’t we blame Cassie Jo for her own murder too? Again your wisdom again is full of empty platitudes that serve no one except yourself.

  • JackDRatt

    It never ceases to amaze me just how self-righteous people in the world, particularly within the US, have become as of late. We are so busy trying to either discover or create dirt against and upon our neighbour, that we deliberately and purposely overlook our own fallacies under the guise of justice. While I do not condone what Mr.’s Draper and Adamcik had been found guilty of doing, and while I hold the severity of Ms. Stoddart’s murder with the highest regard and paramount condolence, it is far from the likes of me to cast judgment upon or against anyone – in this case or in life in general. No one is infallible, but you know this already. Unfortunately, it also seems everyone is vulnerably susceptible to public scrutiny and outcry, and you know this as well. We, who are supposed and describably aver to be civiilized are far more barbaric than we have ever been as a people. We persist at literally ‘burning’ these societal outcasts at the stake instead of trying to help them. We are too preoccupied at putting someone behind bars for the rest of their lives with hopes it would purge our selfish worlds of a perpetual evil, when in truth, it gives us a faux cause to feel better about ourselves by pointing out instead of looking inward. We are a sad society, destined for the very Hell we created for ourselves by condeming others to it under the faux auspices of decency and moral values, when in truth, we have never created, let alone adhered to such morals or values. We manufacture them to suit our own selfishness in order to empower us to lord over our neighbour. Mr. Draper, Mr. Adamcik: I cannot rightly say whether or not you murdered Ms. Stoddart; I do not have that ethical luxury or spiritual right, which pleases me beyond all measure. Be that as it is (and not may), if you are indeed guilty, then you shall have to answer for it before a Power higher than any in this meager plane of existence could even fathom. To the Stoddart family, you have every right to be angry; no one can rightfully deny you this true feeling. All in all, it is my hope everyone can find some semblance of peace and closure within this premise via forgiveness and not forgetfulness; through time and temperance instead of ignorance and hatred; with passion and not prejudice. If we persist to remain in the past, we actually forget how to live. Live and let live, and if you find someone who lacs peace in life, offer your own; I am confident you can spare some.

    • Jluvnlife77

      Do you have a place to rehabilitate these young men? You offer this diatribe,”We are a sad society, destined for the very Hell we created for ourselves by condeming others to it under the faux auspices of decency and moral values, when in truth, we have never created, let alone adhered to such morals or values.” Yet I seriously doubt you would volunteer in anyway to go out there and do what you could to be a part of the answer, otherwise you would have offered some practical advice here about helping young men with such horrendous fantasies about killing. I also completely disagree with your statement “never created, let alone adhered to such morals or values.” Where do you live, and whom do you run with? There are plenty of decent people that created and adhere to morals or values, which they stand up for daily. If you seriously believe what you are purporting to, then get involved with teens that are in “at-risk” situations, become a sponsor of Ala-teens, become a big brother or big sister.
      I lost a son, I forgave, I have peace….there still needs to be justice, by the only means this country will proceed with justice, and better than most countries!!

      Wow, you are the self appointed sage of everything and for someone who is “amazed” at the self-rightousness of others, I find myself amazed by your condescending holier than thou superiority complex. What gives you the right or authority to offer advice to the Stoddart family, oh wise one? It is just disgusting to read your trite advice to them in the face of suffering you will never even begin to understand. Your wisdom is a mile deep and an inch deep and full of empty worthless platitudes. When people are suffering the last thing you should do is offer unsolicited advice. You have no idea how much worse it makes it for them because people like you remind them that no one understands the enormity of what has been lost. You are repulsive in your desire to appear wise at their expense. I think you have read one too many new age books and fancy yourself some kind of super evolved human being when you obviously lack sensitivity, experience and depth as did the books that you read. I feel sorry for you as you struggle though life so impressed with yourself that you need to parade around as some kind of unpaid internet sage.

    Jack D Ratt, my reservations with the death penalty have nothing to do with those situations in which it is warranted. It has to do with its uneven application and those rare cases in which an executed person turns out to have been innocent of the crime with which they were charged. Since neither of those concerns apply in this case… a jury (not me) judged these 2 and found them guilty based on indisputable evidence that they themselves were kind of enough to provide on a silver platter when they choose to record their thoughts and actions, so I need not worry about either whether the crime warrants the punishment or whether reasonable doubt about their guilt exists. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I have the feeling that I’m not the only one who feels this way. Please, if you are ever appointed to a judgeship or elected to a public office, let us all know your location. I want to make sure I stay far, far away from there!

  • Jcroberson12

    Each of these boys deserves to be put in jail for the rest of their life. They admitted they know their actions were wrong and yet they went through with is horrific crime. Send them to jail for the rest of their lives. Parents get a clue, you raised a murder…don’t make the same mistake twice if you have other children.

    • NOVJL

      One of the most chilling things for me personally as an NOVJL member was to watch the “In Coldest Blood” episode on this horrific murder case and listen to Draper and Adamcik’s own descriptions of the killing, their planning, their celebration – view at http://www.tv.com/web/in-coldest-blood/watch/in-coldest-blood-the-videotape-1406731/

      But then worst of all to see the parents of one of the killers STILL trying to totally blame the other killer, still making excuses for their son, still trying to minimize his role and the crime he committed. Even though these parents love and are heartbroken for their sons, as I would be if I had to walk a mile in their shoes, I would never make excuses, try to minimize or shift blame. That does NOT help redeem their son’s souls, which is what they should be most worried about right now.

  • http://www.facebook.com/marie.boyd.509 Marie Boyd

    sick and shameless and truly evil! I watched the tapes of the interrogations and then their SICK homemade confessions and seriously these 2 never ever deserve to see the light of day again. That was so premeditated it was just creepy. I’m not saying they should die or be raped in prison because that is so sick and wrong no matter what anyone has done, I just don’t live by and eye for an eye. But for the safely of humanity they can never be let out for the rest of their lives. These 2 kids were brainwashed by a violent culture and saw the columbine kids as ‘heros’. I know from what little pieces I have seen of video games and torture films that this is probably a serious problem and isn’t going away when under-developed brains are fed a steady stream of hyper violent crap. I’m not making excuses because yes, evil has always existed, but now it’s totally glorified when 50 years ago kids killing was really rare.
    I don’t know what to say except there should never have to be the possibility of another trial, Cassie’s family doesn’t deserve any of this after what those monsters did! The system is sick and needs help as much as those killers. They should probably be in a nut house and I just feel so bad for their parents, I don’t know what I would do or think if my kid ended up a weirdo sadist like them. But I do remember they are someone’s kids and I ask Jesus Christ my Lord and savior to please watch over everyone involved because it’s never too late for redemption. I see evil for what it is, but Cassie was so beautiful and had such a warmth, I know the devil wanted to snuff her out and it just makes me so angry. I know it sounds insane to someone who has never met evil but it is what it is.
    Jack-d-ratt is a relative and loved one of one of these boys so remember he is hurting too.

  • Forbidden Fruit

    I’m generally against life sentences for children, but Draper and Adamcik are not
    some innocent kids who killed an abusive parent in self-defense. They’re
    cold-blooded murderers. Their videos prove that they have no capacity
    for remorse, empathy or other human emotions that separate us from the
    lower animals. They killed for sport and for fame. The end.

    I would rather see all incarcerated drug dealers, prostitutes and
    petty thieves be set free at once than to have either of these monsters
    released 30, 40 or 50 years from now. You take a life, you pay with
    your life–either via the death penalty or life in prison. These social
    rules exist for a reason. No one is exempt.

    These were entitled middle class kids who wanted for nothing, not the
    victims of extreme poverty, child abuse or crippling mental illness.
    The only people rallying for their release are their own families, who
    have no clue what it feels like to lose a child to senseless violence.
    Their cries to “free Draper/Adamcik” are a slap in the face to the
    victim’s loved ones.

  • Kim Mills

    Pure evil beings that should rot in jail for what they did. The problem in this society is that there’s no accountability even for young teens. Now one of the murderers family is trying to petition for his acquittal? Seriously? Did they not see him in the videotape?
    The world is a safer place with criminals like him locked up for life.

  • monica

    Book is completely biased. She’s Torey’s mother so how could she not be. She totally blames Brian for everything. Her son was too scared to do anything, call for help, help the victim, etc. She leaves incriminating details out. In the video they made after the murder Torey is telling Brian to shut the f@#$ up and telling him how they’re going to cover their asses. Further more she sympathized with the victims family when it comes to Brian but when her son is on trial she believes victims family is crying to sway the jury. Torey is not innocent. This book is biased as hell. In fact it further convinced me of his guilt.

    • http://www.teenkillers.org/ VictimsofTeenKillers

      Thank you for pointing out that a book by the mother of one of these tragic teen killers is not “proof” of anything.

  • JVAdvocateII

    As things are going to be coming to a BOIL again shortly, I want to say something and I want EVERYONE, including Those HATERS that have been so Abusive of those of us SEEKING TRUE UNDERSTAND TRUE JUSTICE FOR CASSIE JO, as well as for the Adamciks.

    OK I came into this case right at about Seven or so months ago, so it took me personally and a network of friends all over the world months researching this case. Some of those have been following the case from almost right at the beginning. Some of the group are not sure exactly what Torey is guilty of, NONE, as far as I know, think he is 100% guilty of anything, but what, is the question which has kept this discussion going.

    So now with a bit of introduction I am begging everyone to read what I have written, on the lawns of your place of worship, if it makes you feel closer to God or who it is that you send your prayers out to.

    The VERY FIRST thing that really bothers me about this case is the Judge sealing the file, and pulling under penalty of Jail any Documents, News Articles, Video’s etc. THAT HAD BEEN AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC from the time Brian Draper’s trial started, to about a few months ago, because being naive` I thought that Justice in the United States was absolute, as in my Research for cases, EACH and EVERY ONE of them at least until the last case I worked on with the Attorney was innocent.

    The last one told us in bloody gory detail the murder, and changed his voice inflection depending on what way would get him off. I had a flash of some kind that said the vow I took in the 80’s that I was going to use my education and talents to helping people, but not to that extent. My thought is IF he had been willing to accept the blame, but look for the ability to change as many have by serving Life Sentences, I think I could have worked with that, but to be proud and unwilling to accept what you did is pure evil no thank you.

    So I get to looking into Torey Michael Adamcik and Brian Draper, and (remember I am not educated formally in psychology, but the school of hard knocks has taught me many lessons) I was given a link to an interview with Torey, I think by the cops, watched it, and Brian made me feel I was in the room with the Convicted and given the Death Sentence, the one that I sat across the table with had coffee, danishes and talked to for several hours many hours almost EVERY SINGLE DAY!

    I do not know what or why but looking into those eyes, I felt I was looking into the tunnel into outer darkness, into HELL. When he spoke EVERYTHING he said, like my former client, just gave this feeling of pure evil, BUT you could also see a glow behind and off to the side that made you think, “MAYBE, Just Maybe, that there was a part of him that was still fighting the Darkness.” If this is actual case, and the day that he openly admits to the world that he, and HE alone is the one that knew that this was a true murder and had only hooked up with Tory Adamcik because Torey was known for making films, using friends, family, until he met Brian anyway, and at that point, I have been unable to figure out exactly why and how Brian did what he did, but this was NOT the story that Torey is giving, However if you watch any video where Draper is being interviewed, especially when he is giving the blow by blow to version, with TOREY the one that did everything, How ever if you listen to his voice the inflection, the stuttering, you can tell when he is trying hard not to burst out the truth.

    When you watched Torey, he had a very blank almost like he STILL has not comprehended what happened that night. and how he was led into it. I tend to believe his version more, because of the body language, and the way he looked as if he was looking into your eyes.

    There is just way to many questions in my mind, they all make a huge difference in Torey’s Civil Rights. UNTIL he is PROVEN GUILTY by a jury of his peers, UNBIASED with NO knowledge of the case, he STILL has his Civil Rights. EVERYTHING that I have found in this case screams Civil Rights Violations.

    Let’s see what happens in this Hearing, and maybe our questions will be answered or maybe all Pocatello Residents will find out that there is a whole lot more to the story, BUT Torey was never given the ability to have that maybe…
