The horrific cold case of Mary Ann Holmes.

Her kids watched her die in this small Arizona town.

A small predominately religious town called Thatcher, Arizona was the kind of place that left their doors unlocked and their windows open at night. In other words, people felt safe living in this close-knit farming community. So when 29-year-old Mary Ann was brutally murdered in her home, it was a major shock to the locals.
