  • Detective Scott Day had been on the Edmond Police Force for just about 20 years. Close to his retirement, he could reflect back on his career and be proud of the work that he had done…all except for that one case from 18 years prior. He had been a rookie officer then, and the first to respond to the scene of a murder and a violent sexual assault. The case had gone unsolved and haunted the community. It was something that he thought about often. The house, the details, he could see the only survivor standing in the doorway of the house battered and covered in blood sobbing as he ran to her. That’s why it was odd that there he was in 2004 and he stood again in front of a brick house with a large bush in front of a window on a suburban street. It was like deja vu….he got his bearings and looked around. He was actually only steps away from the house he responded to back in 1986. Had he done it again…

  • Just weeks before Christmas a woman was found murdered in her car on a remote country road in Texas. Her murderer was trying to throw off detectives with a faked sexual assault, the clothes of the victim folded neatly in the front seat, her purse missing but not other the other valuables in the vehicle. They didn’t know what to make of it. But the family of Sandy Harper Dial would not let their sister/daughter’s case go unsolved. And don’t worry this case is solved…the only problem is…it morphs into another one entirely.



  • In 1995 detectives from the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Department had a witness who saw the man that brutally murdered a mother of two in her hair salon. They had another witness that saw the vehicle he had most likely been driving, and to the credit of one very diligent criminalist, they had his DNA…but for an infuriating ten years the murderer of Dana Satterfield would evade them allowing him to wreak havoc on the women in his life. That is until 2005 when the guilt got the better of one final witness.
