Learn what was happening in the days leading up to Linda’s murder including her plans to move the next day, a strange purchase in the hours before her murder, her last known whereabouts, and an out-of-character email she sent to all of her siblings just hours before she was murdered.

Jen also regroups with Melissa Sandberg to hear which details of the case stuck out to her. Jen begins laying the foundation for the team’s on-the-ground investigation by reaching out to her cousin, Mark, who is familiar with the area and has contacts for the team to connect with.
