Dakota Wall More News
Twisted Sisters is investigating the death of high school teenager Sidnee Stephens who was kidnapped from her home in Pinckneyville, Illinois, before being shot dead by a creek.
Her killers were four local thugs called Robbie Mueller, James Glazier, Chad Bennett, and Carl Dane, who had invaded her home and stuffed the teenager in a car trunk.
But one of the most disturbing aspects of this case is that the killers were aided by Sidnee’s half-sister Dakota Wall.
The four men were Wall’s friends, and she purposefully left the door open to their home, so her four friends could kidnap her younger sister.
On July 19, 2010, 15-year-old Sidnee Stephens was reported missing from her home. Six days later, fishermen spotted her remains floating in the Beaumont Creek. An inspection of the corpse revealed she had been choked and shot with a handgun.
The police subsequently learned that Robbie Mueller, James Glazier, Chad Bennett, and Carl Dane entered the house and attacked Sidnee, and they choked the teenager until she lost consciousness on two occasions.
They then took her to a remote area by the Beaumont Creek, where Dane shot her at least two times. Mueller and Glazier then pushed her remains into the water.
Dakota Wall kept her silence about her horrific role in her sister’s murder for 27 months before the police fully ascertained all the details.
Wall tried to defend herself by saying she had just left the door open for her friends to scare her sister and had never expected them to kill Sidnee. However, the police didn’t buy her story, and she was charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping, home invasion, and burglary.
The twisted sister eventually pleaded guilty to home invasion, and the other charges were dropped. In 2018, she was sentenced to 26 years in prison, but she should eligible to attend a parole hearing in 2023.
Dane was sentenced to 60 years in prison for murder, but he committed suicide inside his cell while waiting to be transferred to federal prison. Glazier was also sentenced to 60 years and remains in prison.
Meanwhile, Mueller was given 37 years for his role in the murder.
The case against Bennett was initially dropped due to lack of evidence, but in the fall of 2018, he was charged again and received a 20-year prison sentence.

Carl Dane Suicide
Illinois State Police are investigating the death of a 19-year-old prisoner who pleaded guilty to murdering a Pinckneyville teen.
Carl Dane, 19, of Pinckneyville was pronounced dead at 5 a.m. in his cell at the Perry County Jail in Pinckneyville Friday.
Carl Dane’s Attorney Brian Trentman says, he was told they believe Dane killed himself.
An autopsy was conducted Friday afternoon. The Perry County Coroner says he is awaiting those results.
A corrections officer found Dane’s body in his cell at the Perry County Jail early Friday Morning. Investigators say they don’t suspect foul play.
Today Dane was set to be taken to Menard Correctional Center to begin serving a 60-year-sentence for the murder of 15-year Sidnee Stephens.
Dane pleaded guilty in June 2011 to a charge of 1st degree murder in the 2010 death of Stephens. The Perry County State’s Attorney says as part to plea deal, Trentman asked Dane stay in the county jail until August 5th.
Perry County Sheriff Keith Kellerman tells Heartland News he’s never had this type of incident in the jail during his more than ten years in office.
Meanwhile Trentman says it’s an extremely sad day. He adds in the year of representing Dane, there was no indication he would cause harm to himself.
The incident is current under investigation by Perry County Coroner’s Office and the Illinois State Police.
