A gentle life – ended by an act of violence.

SARA VANDEN BERGE: I’ll never get the image out of my head. It was brutal. It was just absolutely brutal.

There were obvious clues, but no easy answers.

RICHARD PRINGLE: We had the evidence. That’s what’s so frustrating about it. specially when it hasn’t been solved.

A crime that left one woman dead and a trail of other victims in its wake.

SHANNON: I felt hurt, I felt betrayed. The justice system is so broken.

Sometimes justice delayed is no justice at all. And even three decades later, the pain is still raw.

MICHAEL WOODS: I have a good 20, 30 years of rage.
