Carleigh Hager is a typical 25-year-old from Indianapolis. On the night of October 22, 2016, she arrived home from a wedding with her boyfriend Ryan and three other guests. After what had begun as a perfectly pleasant evening, things were about to take a very dark turn.
Ryan had been drinking heavily and began acting abusively. He insulted Carleigh in front of his friends, even suggesting that they would be welcome to abuse her.
