Episode #61 // The Murder of Shannon Melendi
In 1994, college student Shannon Melendi was keeping score for a baseball game for extra cash. The umpire seemed oddly focused on Shannon, and after the lunch break, Shannon would never be seen again. It would take years for the investigation to lead anywhere, and the case was completely circumstantial. Would it be enough to bring Shannon's killer to justice?
