Tracy Lawson and her husband Andy had been friends since childhood.
Then a shocking 911 call would leave the authorities wondering...
...Did Andy have a dark secret?
Or was it Tracy that had something to hide?
Did Tracy cheat death at the hands of her husband?
Or will the crime scene cast doubt on her story of self defense?

The ambulance was for Andy.

Tracy said she wanted to protect her daughter from her enraged husband, so she grabbed a pipe.
All the signs of a domestic disturbance.

Puzzling: blood stains on the sheets and mattress. Tracy never said Andy was in the bed when he was struck.

Tracy started to make threatening comments and "joke" about Andy's life insurance policy.
