Description

We travel back to Minnesota in 1912 to discover the tragic case of a young woman slain just yards from home: so close to safety, yet so far from salvation. She was popular and hardworking, with a loving, happy family, and no enemies. So how was it possible that a man confessed multiple times to killing 21-year-old Alice Matthews, but nobody was ever taken to trial?
