Laura covers the absolutely horrific murders of George and Edith Bentley, their daughter and her husband Jackie and Bob Johnson and their two daughters Karen and Janet Johnson in 1982 in British Columbia Canada while on a camping trip.What initially appeared to be a possible robbery was later learned to be a sexually motivated crime by a perverse local maniac named David Shearing. David Shearing did eventually give a full confession. He is serving the longest sentence allowed under Canadian law and remains incarcerated at this time. Amanda covers the mysterious death of Coronado California resident Rebecca Zahau.Three days prior to Rebecca's death, her boyfriend's son Max whom Rebecca was caring for at the time was involved in a tragic accident inside the home. Rebecca was understandably upset as Max Shacknai was in critical condition at a local hospital. On July 13, 2011, Rebecca was found by Adam Shacknai (the brother of Zahau's boyfriend Jonah Shacknai) hanging from a balcony at the Spreckels mansion where Zahau and Jonah Shacknai resided. Rebecca Zahau's death was initially ruled a suicide by the medical examiner, but many speculate and believe that rebecca was murdered including her own family. Amanda explores the many odd aspects of Rebeccas death inlcluding the fact that rebecca was bound and gagged, she was found nude, and an odd message was painted as either a suicide note, or a cryptic message from the murderer. Is it a murder or a suicide? You decide.
