Description

Two young men, living the good life -- surrounding themselves with all the trappings of wealth and success. But their sun-kissed California lives are darkened by greed, paranoia and accusations of wrongdoing. What seemed to be paradise is tainted by mistrust and, ultimately, violence -- concealed for months by a convincing web of lies -- until a few determined investigators and a worried family unravel them to reveal a stunning story of deception. Hosted by Matt Gutman.
