The sisters were refugees from the conflict in Bosnia and had gone to the United States to live with their uncle six months before they went missing. They found work at a factory in Streamwood, Illinois and got an apartment, but then they were laid off. Paul Frederick Runge offered them a job cleaning his house in Glendale, Illinois.
He handcuffed Amela to a bench, sexually assaulted her and strangled her. Afterwards Runge dismembered the women's bodies in his bathtub, put the pieces in plastic bags and disposed of them in garbage bins.
