A gripping true crime account of a double murder and two missing girls in Oklahoma.
On December 30th, 1999, a couple in rural Oklahoma came across a trailer in flames. When the police arrived and discovered a body, it quickly became a murder investigation. Soon after, it came to light that 16-year-old Ashley Freeman and her best friend Lauria Bible were missing.
Rumours of drug debts, retributive violence and police collusion abounded in the years that followed, but the case remained unsolved and the girls were never found.
In 2015, writer Jax Miller travelled to Oklahoma to find out what really happened. What she unearthed was shocking: police corruption, witnesses assassinated, and a spate of interconnected murders with an ominously familiar pattern. These struggling towns were wild, lawless and home to some very dark secrets…
After three years of dogged investigation by Jax and her team, the first arrests in the case were finally made in April 2018.
