Roger Atkison was brutally murdered alongside his mistress, Rose Burkert,  in an Iowa hotel room in 1980.

In an eerie twist, the couple was only able to get a room there after a last second cancellation as the hotel was booked to capacity because of a mortician's convention being held there. Despite her husband's infidelity, Roger's widow has searched for almost 40 years to figure out who killed him.
