Aspen's Golden Girl was found murdered in her locked bedroom closet. The story that unfolded about her life was full of fun parties, reckless abandon and plenty of drama.

On October 31, 1993, a hardware store owner from Steamboat Springs, Colorado named Gerry Boggs was found dead in his home. He was struck with a shovel and shot several times in the back. The first suspect to cross anyone's mind was the woman he was briefly married to, Jill Coit. By that time, Jill was very obviously unhinged and desperate for control and cash but investigators would soon uncover decades of bigamy, fraud, deceit, and another dead husband whose murder is still unsolved.

Vincent Darrell Groves is Colorado's most prolific serial killer. He was caught after a man watched him dump a body in an alley behind his house and police stalked him like a shadow for years. He was arrested for one murder and released, only to kill many times over. He wasn't so much cunning as he was utterly invisible and spontaneous, killing any woman who he saw an opportunity to attack. The full extent of his crimes would only be realized in 2010, but that isn't the end of them.

On June 14, 2010 Kiowa High School teacher Randy Wilson was found dead by his car in a field at the intersection of two rural county roads.

But he doesn't confess in any conventional way, he does so by facebooking detectives, leaving notes around a mall, and writing on the windows of his apartment. Is he the man who killed Randy Wilson, or is something else at play here?
