On the evening of April 8th, Cassie's family members asked the police to do a welfare check on her grandparents, Wendy and Randall Bjorge.

The family had not heard from the elderly couple for some time and were worried about their condition.

Since no one answered the door, they left and respected their privacy.


Later in the night, police were called to an assault that took place.

Ryder had attacked his sister and her boyfriend and ran off with Cassie.

When police arrived, they did not find either of the two but discovered the vehicle that belonged to the Wendy and Randall.


Police returned to the Bjorge's residence and forced their way into the house.

Upon going upstairs, the found the deceased bodies of Wendy and Randall in an apparent homicide.

Cassie and Johnny became suspects in their murder.


The next day, police located Cassie and Johnny to the address of 4000 McGinnis Ferry Road at McGinnis Ferry Apartments in Suwanee, GA. The address was a friend

of Ryder's who did not know the extent of the situation.

When Cassie and Johnny refused to leave the residence, a SWAT team was called in for assistance.

When they entered the home, they found Cassie and Johnny with self-inflicted stab wounds.

Both were taken to Gwinnett Medical Center to be treated for their injuries. [-1]

According to arrest warrants, Johnny and his girlfriend beat her grandparents with a tire iron before finishing the job by slashing their throats.
