Court-TV aired a show Wednesday night, called "Haunting Evidence", which focused on the J.B. Beasley and Tracie Hawlett murder case.

Tracie Hawlett's mother, Carol remembers the deaths of the girls as if it were yesterday.

Incoming high school seniors J.B. Beasley and Tracie Hawlett were found shot to death in the trunk of J.B.’s car on August 1st, 1999.

Court-TV’s psychic profiler and a paranormal investigator came to the Wiregrass to pinpoint what happened to the girls.

According to their investigation, they say after the girls called home, they were followed by a stranger who eventually forced them into a remote location.

They say the suspect performed sexual acts then shot them close-range.

“I think it was very close. I was very impressed with the way that it turned out. I think they were right on key with everything that happened that night,” said Carol Roberts.

A composite sketch was drawn based on the psychic’s description, but police have not confirmed if they believe that's the suspect.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $45,000 dollar reward. If you have any information call 774-9999.

    In response to J, you are probably right on the money. Ask anyone in 3 counties who did this and you get the same answer. Something is rotten and it's not in Denmark.

    I think the local police might have have the answers we are looking for. The place is very dark so this person was a local. This person was a man. No finger prints or DNA or hair fibers? sounds like a local cop might have done this.

    I truly hope that they find out who did this to these beautiful girls. Tracie was my stepsister and my heart goes out to my father and his wife Carol. Know one should ever have to know what it feels like to lose a child. I pray to God that the persons responsible will be caught and I pray peace into their lives. May God be with my father his wife and two boys. God bless you guys....I love you!!!

    I am sorry I missed the show. If anyone has a copy, please let me know here. I know one of the girls' mother. I could not be as strong as she is, or even breathe in and out. I sincerely hope and pray that the monster that did this to all of us is found. It won't bring back anyone, but everyone in the wiregrass will have a reason to celebrate. It will also give us faith again in our surroundings and protectors.

    My heart goes out to the families of these two girls. What a horrible tragedy. I have just recently began watching Haunting Evidence and although I've never been certain that someone could have psychic powers, after watching several episodes I'm becoming more convinced. I hope they catch the person responsible, and I pray that God will continue to bring comfort to the families.

    I went to school with Traci and JB.They were smart girls,that did stupid things. I do not believe in psychics but a cold case detective may be able to uncover some new info. I do hope and pray that whomever did this is caught and punished to the fullest extent of the law.

    I dont know if they will ever find out who did this. I have said all alone that I believe it was someone that they knew. If they were headed home from that store they would have never ended up there. Thats why I think if was someone they knew and they stopped off somewhere with them.

    I THINK THIS IS SO SAD. I MEAN WHAT HAPPENED? THERE WAS NO DNA EVIDENCE, FINGERPRINTS, ANYTHING THEY COULD'VE USED TO HELP THEM?? SOMEBODY KNOWS SOMETHING. AND I JUST KEEP ASKING MYSELF "WHAT KIND OF PERSON WOULD DO THIS?? OR KNOW WHO DID THIS OR WHAT HAPPENED AND WOULDN'T TELL?? EVEN IF THEY DIDN'T DO THE ACTUAL KILLINGS THEY DIDN'T DO ANYTHING TO STOP IT OR RIGHT THE WRONG!!
