Description

Dorothy Davis died at the Fort Lewis Army base in Washington State in 1991. Her death was originally ruled a suicide because that's what the scene inside her bedroom suggested. But, as more pieces of the pictures came into focus, suspicion began falling squarely on the shoulders of Dorothy's husband, Corporal Christian Davis.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss Dorothy's death and the investigation that eventually led back to her husband. As authorities pieced everything together, they learned that Christian may have tried to kill Dorothy years earlier in a fire made to look like an accident. Crucial clues emerged, including the jacket Christian was wearing the night his wife died and a hazy 20-minute window of time that night. Suicide letters next to Dorothy turned out not to be what authorities they were, and the way that she was holding the gun was re-examined. It all led to one suspect, Dorothy's husband, Christian.
