    104. Cold Justice: Sonya Ivanoff

    104. Cold Justice: Sonya Ivanoff

    19-year-old Sonya Ivanoff was a standout in her small community of Nome Alaska. Sonja, who moved to Nome about two years prior, had made a name for herself on the basketball court in high school so almost everyone knew Sonya. On the evening of August 10, 2003, Sonja and her friend went out to have some fun. It was near midnight when the friends separated to do other things. When the roommate woke up the next morning and Sonja was not at home, worry set in. Police launch an investigation but with only a 7 person police team, specialists had to be flown in. Officers were working day and night to find out what happened to Sonya. When the truth finally came out, it was not only shocking but had been right in front of them the whole time.

    103. Stark Raving Mad: George Trepal

    103. Stark Raving Mad: George Trepal

    It is 1988 and we are going to Florida in a town called Alturas where a man received a strange and anonymous letter in the mail. The note which had been typed stated, “ You and all your so-called family have 2 weeks to move out of Florida forever or else you will all die. This is no joke.” At first, they believed this to be a prank but they would soon be proved wrong. What they didn’t yet know is how many would die and who in the world would ever have a problem with this nice suburban family.

    102. Through an Open Window: Sandy Jeffers

    In 2003, Sandy Jeffers had the world on a string. She was set to receive her 2nd undergraduate degree and was planning to start the doctoral program at the University of Tennessee in the fall.

    Sandy was a sweet, young woman, the type of person that people like to be around.

    Unfortunately, Sandy caught the attention of someone she didn't know. Someone that she wouldn't know until it was too late.

    101. The Werewolf Butcher: Jack Spillman

    101. The Werewolf Butcher: Jack Spillman

    *Warning: this episode is extremely graphic. It deals with the death of a child and animal mutilation. Discretion is advised.

    It is April 13, 1995, when the daughter of 48 year old Rita Huffman was trying to reach her mom who was not answering the phone. Her sister, 15 year old Amanda was not asnwering the phone either making it especially strange since teens love the phone. Since she felt that something was not right, she headed over to the house to check on her mom and sister. When she arrived the front door was locked so she went into the backyard and entered through the sliding glass door. Once she entered the house, she would find a vicious brutal crime scene. A monster had paid and visit to this innocent, beautiful family.

    99. The Trouble with Alice: Alice Crimmins

    99. The Trouble with Alice: Alice Crimmins

    The year is 1965 and Alice Crimmins is not like most of the women of the time as she is about to be a divorced woman with two small children, 4-year-old Alice Marie who went by Missy, and 5-year-old Eddie. She dressed well and had style, ladies wanted to be friends with her and men wanted to marry her. She was the envy of almost all of them-- that was-- until something happened that summer day and now, no one would ever want to trade places with Alice. It was July 14, 1965, when Alice went into the bedroom to wake Missy and Eddie only to see they were not still in their messy unmade beds. Instead, the window was wide open as the sheers were blowing in the wind. Her babies were missing but who could have or would have done such a horrible thing?
