In 2009, 8-year-old Sandra Cantu would go missing between play dates with friends. The FBI profiled a male kidnapper, and police focused on this profile.

But when Sandras body would be found, a connection would be made between Sandra and the female neighbor. Was this woman involved, and if so, what was her motive to kidnap and murder a child?
