Part 1: In 1954, Dr. Sam Sheppard was awoken by his wife, Marilyn, screaming his name from the upstairs bedroom. When Sam made his way up the stairs to her twin bed, he found her bludgeoned to death by a "bushy-haired white form" looming over her. After his violent encounter with the "form", Sam would be tried for the murder of his wife because, let's be real here, a "bushy-haired white form" doesn't really sound like a real story. After a lengthy trial, Sam would be convicted of 2nd degree murder of his beautiful wife. It wouldn't be until later when new evidence emerged that eventually earned Sam his acquittal. Was Sam telling the truth or did he murder his wife in an attempt to rid her from his life so that he could be with another woman? You tell us! Part 2: When the 20 year old shy, reserved Sophie Lionnet was offered a job as an au pair in London, she was over the moon. This would give her an opportunity to improve her English, travel, and work with children. Little did she know, a true nightmare awaited her.
