A book is being written about the murder of Skylar Neese. Part of the novel was released at 12:00 a.m. on Tuesday.
Investigators believe Eddy and Rachel Shoaf planned Skylar's murder. At one point the three girls were best friends.
Eddy pleaded guilty to first degree murder and was sentenced to life with mercy on January 24. Shoaf pleaded guilty to second degree murder last year in May. Shoaf will be sentenced at a hearing on February 26. Family members and authors of the book aren't planning on speaking to members of the media until the sentence is handed down.
Many people in the area are reacting to the release of the book.
"They really should've waited and let some time pass. It's just too soon for the family. My only concern is the family," said Marion County resident Marshall Woods.
A lot of people are curious to find out what's in the book, but others are saying they don't want to know the details surrounding the slaying.
"I don't need to know them. I don't think it's my business to and it's not going to change the way I do anything," said Monongalia County resident John Valentine.
Skylar was killed in July 2012. Investigators believed she was missing until Shoaf admitted her guilt and led police to her remains.
