Episode 433: Candy Mossler
Candy Mossler was a wild woman. She'd always dreamed of a bold and glamorous life outside of the small town she came from. Little did she know she would spend a good portion of her adult life and afterlife in that spotlight- just for all the wrong reasons. After Candy discovered her husband murdered in their vacation home she and her nephew Melvin would find themselves on trial for his murder, and worse, their relationship as nephew and aunt would be revealed as much much more.
