A Killer at the Door

In Episode 482

McKay Everett was the adored only child of Paulette and Carl Everett. The tight-knit family of three lived a comfortable life in an upscale subdivision in Conroe, Texas, a town just a few miles north of Houston. Crime was uncommon in the Everett’s neighborhood, but they still took precautions, including the installation of a home security system.

Join us at the quiet end for A Killer at the Door: The Abduction and Murder of McKay Everett. At 12-years-old, McKay knew all about stranger danger. But kidnapping by a complete stranger is rare. And one of the rarest murders of all is a murder committed in the course of a kidnapping. In this case, McKay had been taken from his home by someone he knew, someone who had lured McKay’s parents out of their home to get them out of the way. So, how did McKay know his killer and what was the motive behind this inconceivable betrayal?
