Gail Maney was sent to prison on her son's birthday. The police said she'd put a hit on a man who stole drugs from her. She went to jail for 15 years.
She's consistently denied having anything to do with the disappearance of Deane Fuller-Sandys. In fact, she says, she never even met him. She isn't sure he was murdered at all. She thinks he'd just ... gone fishing.
In this eight-part series, Amy Maas and Adam Dudding investigate the case against Maney. They unravel the conflicting and shifting accounts of key witnesses. They expose major flaws in the police timeline. And they raise disturbing questions about police conduct in the case.
