It had been months, detectives in every precinct aching at the chance to solve what seemed to be the biggest murder case in World history. For months no evidence, no witnesses, not even the slightest clue as to who could be responsible. Until today November 11, 2008 we received a phone call.
The caller wanted to remain anonymous; we immediately put a trace on the phone call. It came back to a residential house just outside Henniker, New Hampshire. Her name was Shelia Winters. An unlikely suspect, divorced mother of 4. Reluctant to talk and seemingly embarrassed, she told us the dream she had of a squirrel sitting in the center of several crime scenes. Although ridiculous we catered to her and asked how she knew of the crime scenes, they had not been released to the media. She told us that she looked up the places up on the internet and they all had the murders in common.
We didn’t think it was relative, that is until the lab called 15 minutes after Ms. Winters phone call. They had new evidence to report.
