In the early morning hours of June 14, 2007, a 32-year-old man is found walking down the side of a frontage road off I-55 in Channahon, Illinois. He's bleeding and seemingly in shock.

In part 1 of this episode, you'll hear about one woman's nightmare come true. In 1995, 21-year-old Kristine Bunch was abruptly awoken in the early morning hours to discover that her house was on fire. After escaping the flames, she watched in horror as firefighters were unable to save her 3-year-old son who was still trapped inside. Within hours of being released from the hospital, she discovered that detectives had a theory about the fire - someone had started the fire on purpose, and their main suspect was Kristine. 

A special thank you to Kristine Bunch for helping me tell her story.

In April 2006, the small city of Medicine Hat in Alberta, Canada, was shocked by an unthinkable murder no one ever saw coming - A 12-year-old girl convinces her 23-year-old boyfriend to murder her entire family.

Warning: this episode contains some disturbing details, but they're important to understanding the severity and complexity of the case.

NOTE: I'd like to make a correction about my reference to the "town of Saskatchewan." Saskatchewan is actually a province and not a town. Sincere apologies to my Canadian friends!
