SYRIA -- A runaway teen is a parent's nightmare. But imagine if your 17-year-old daughter ran off to join one of the most dangerous terror groups in the world --- and ended up dead!

Although it hasn't been officially confirmed, one of two Austrian teens dubbed "poster girls" for ISIS was reportedly beaten to death after trying to escape.

Back in April 2014, Samra Kesinovic and her friend Sabina  Selimovic left their homes in Vienna after the radical Islamic group reportedly recruited the two girls through social media. It didn't take long before it was reported the two had married ISIS fighters and were both pregnant.

A month later, a number of reports said the teens had written their families saying they wanted to come home. The last news about the missing teens was that Sabina, the friend, had been killed in Syria and Samra had disappeared.

Now, there is an update. Austrian newspapers are reporting a woman who escaped from ISIS claims 17-year-old Samra was murdered by them.

The girls' families have not talked publicly about their reports that both are dead, and the Austrian government has not confirmed or denied the reports.
