Byron Cortney Naisbitt
Birth: Sep. 25, 1957

Late on the night of April 22, 1974, two airmen named Dale Pierre (aka Pierre Dale Shelby) and William Andrews entered the local Hi-Fi Shop in Ogden, Utah, where Stanley Walker and Michelle Ansley worked and Naisbitt was walking through. The two men decided they were going to rob the store. They overpowered the workers and Naisbitt and took them to the basement. Carol Naisbitt (Cortney's mother) and Orren Walker (Stan's father) arrived at the store looking for their children after Cortney, Michelle, and Stan had already been taken to the basement of the store and tied up. Pierre and Andrews forced them to drink liquid Drano, and then Pierre shot them in the head. Michelle Ansley was also raped. Michelle Ansley, Carol Naisbitt, Stanley Walker, died, while Orren Walker and Cortney Naisbitt survived. Pierre and William Andrews were convicted of three counts of aggravated homicide and sentenced to death. Pierre was executed in 1987, and Andrews was executed in 1992. A third participant in the robbery, Keith Roberts, had acted as a lookout and did not actually enter the store. He was found by the court to have had no role in or knowledge of the murders. He was convicted of armed robbery and paroled in 1987. Cortney Naisbitt's story was the basis of the book, "Victim: The Other Side Of Murder" (1980), by Brian Kinder, and the 1991 film, "Aftermath: A Test Of Love." (bio by: K)
