Ep 44: A few days before Christmas in 2012, Jim & Sandy Melgar were celebrating their 32nd wedding anniversary. However, by the end of the night, tragedy would strike and the next day family members would find Jim dead, brutally stabbed and beaten, while Sandy was found alive locked in a closet tied to a chair. Controversy would soon arise as investigators would question whether this tragedy was indeed a home invasion, or if there was a more sinister plot behind these events?
