Madalyn Murray O'Hair was called "the most hated woman in America" by Life Magazine. She was an activist, founder and president of the American Athiests organization, and was responsible for a 1963 Supreme Court ruling that ended the practice of mandatory daily prayer in public schools. In 1995, Madalyn and two of her children mysteriously disappeared. Eventually a typesetter and office manager, David Roland Waters, who had previously pleaded guilty to charges of stealing $54, 000 from American Athiests (and was outed by O'Hair), was charged with the abduction and murder of O'Hair, her two children, and an accomplice in the abduction, Danny Fry. The sawn and mutilated bones of the family were exhumed from a Texas ranch where they had been buried. Another of Madalyn's children, William Murray, had previously dissented from his mother's views, been baptized and became a preacher in Dallas. To add to the heinous injury his mother suffered, William Murray added insult to her memory, legacy, beliefs and express wishes by seeing to it that her remains were finally laid to rest with a Christian ceremony.
