So the police found Joe Wilkes, a friend of David’s, who said David hired him to kill Yvonne. In 2000 with Joe’s testimony, David was sentenced to life without parole. But, our investigation has shown that almost everyone in Yvonne's life had a motive to kill her – like her own family, a creepy neighbor and even police officers.

so fascinating hoping to see what's next...I have to say, something that really gave me pause is how was Yvonne able to ask "WHY" after her neck was sliced to he spine, also hard to believe she would be able to get up from the couch and run towards the sliding glass door. Keep up the fight

Aw man just listening to his voice is so disturbing. So much pain and so clearly saying whatever he thinks they want to hear. How could these officers ever have made detective? They are appallingly bad judges of character
