Trish Tiede: We were up there in the mountains, there was no one around.
It was just my sister and I and two men that were dangerous and had a gun. There was -- a feeling of being completely vulnerable.
When we reached the family car, they had two guns; each of them had a gun. The dark- headed man loaded his gun in the trunk. And as he loaded his gun in the trunk, he pulled his jacket open, and he had a knife. And he looked at me, goes, "Don't worry, I'm just as good with a knife as I am a gun."
Randy Zorn | Uncle: And then I seen the Lincoln come out across the street and I go, "Well there they are again."
I was walking up to the car as they were pulling out. And they seen-- I was actually looking in the back, and I -- I think I seen Linae in the back.
Randy Zorn: And I wave my hands again. I go, "Stop!"
Linae Tiede: I knew that if we were to-- call out or us plead for help or act like we knew Randy that Randy would be shot as well. So he was waving his arms and my sister and I just pretended we didn't know who he was.
Randy Zorn: The car just drove right by me... I knew something's -- something's wrong. ...I don't think it was a minute. ...I seen another snowmobile come up...with this person on it. And I look and I look and I go, "He has no coat on." You know, no gloves -- no helmet. ...I go, "Who is this?" I go, "Oh my God, it's my brother." Rolf.
And his face is just huge and full of blood and just-- just big. Eye swollen shut. Bloodcicles -- 'cause it was cold...he was in really bad shape. And he says, "I've been shot. My wife has been killed and my daughters have been kidnapped."
I start heading down the canyon as fast as I could. ...I'm in panic. Rolf's in the back full of blood, laying on the backseat.
Twenty years ago, your cell service did not work up there - whatsoever -- in that canyon. And I kept trying and trying and trying. ...there are two things on my mind. save the girls, get him on a Life Flight.
I come up to the back of the Lincoln... I know the girls are kidnapped. I know the guys have got guns in -- in the car there. You know, I'm going, "What do I do?" Do I run 'em off the road?
And my mobile kicked in. I got 911 on my mobile. ...she says, "Tell me what direction they're going. We got police; we got people in the area." I go, "Well, they're turning on the road. They're towards Kamus."
I go, "I need -- a helicopter," and the phone went dead. Phone went dead. ... I pulled into the gas station, went over to the pay phone and got 911-- back on the phone again. ...And I go, "Guys, I need a helicopter NOW."
Trish Tiede: We notice a cop car pass us and turn around and begin to follow us. Both men began to panic. ...I remember looking - the speedometer's goin' over 90 miles an hour.
We turned right down towards the canyon and went another mile or so and then fell -- the car fell off an -- embankment.
I remember looking up 'cause the car was at an angle and noticing in the entire road above us we came down was full of -- of -- maybe a couple cops, but mostly people in common clothes drawin' down with pistols and shot guns and rifles at us. And it -- I just remember how amazed I was that there was so many people there so fast.
Linae Tiede: There was cops pointing guns at me. And my little sister says, "No, no, that's my sister." And I don't think they'd received information that there was even hostages in the car.
Trish Tiede: I reached back for my sister's hand and grabbed her hand and said, "Duck!"
Linae Tiede: We both ducked and we were praying and just squeezing each other's hand.
We've always had a connection, even as little children. A special connection. Where we [emotional] can feel each other. She's always been a great comfort to me.
Joe Offert | Lead Investigator: The suspects...were taken from the vehicle...and then were secured by the officers who'd arrived at the scene.
These guys are -- obviously cowards. ...as long as they were in total control of the situation by use of fear and force -- then they continued to function. When that control went away, that's when it -- it stopped and they surrendered to authorities.
Linae Tiede: The men were down on their knees with their arms behind their neck. And the cops were, you know, yellin' at 'em to, "get down, get down," and surrender. ...I started to yell at the cops to kill 'em. I said, "Kill 'em. They just killed my mom, my dad and my grams. Kill 'em. K -- shoot 'em now. Kill 'em."
Trish Tiede: I remember a feeling of not necessarily being safe, but I've survived... We were no longer in the custody of those two evil men.
Randy Zorn: The helicopter showed up -- pretty quick actually ... and they got Rolf out of the back of my Blazer and -- got him into care and he was in pretty bad shape, critical condition. ...and when it lifted off I'm just praying that he makes it.
Trish Tiede: I can't imagine what had to have been goin' through Dad's head after he'd been shot and then shot again. And he's laying there, playing dead. Trying to breathe as shallow as possible.
I later learned that Dad had actually been doused with gasoline. ...And he caught on fire himself. And he had to run into the shower and tear off his snowsuit while on fire.
Having the strength to get on that snowmobile and race down that mountain to save my sister and I -- how much blood he lost, he couldn't see, getting down the mountain in freezing temperatures. ...My whole life of my dad was my hero. And that just put an exclamation point on that.
Linae Tiede: My dad was the most amazing hero that I've ever known.
...Beautiful, kind blue eyes. He...was extremely kind and generous in every way.
Joe Offert: The number one concern in this particular case is rescuing anybody who might need assistance... Secondly, is to preserve the evidence at the crime scene.
One of the most significant pieces of evidence...was a video camera. Inside the video camera -- was a videotape.
We had no idea -- what might be recorded -- on that. So, at a number of junctures in that -- in that-- film, I was saying, "Oh my God, oh my God."
