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.
