Betrayed & Buried: The McStay Family

In Episode 281

In February, 2010, Joseph McStay, his wife, Summer, and their young sons, Gianni and Joseph Jr., disappeared from their Fallbrook, California home.  Days later, their SUV was found abandoned in a parking lot near the Mexican border.  A dark and fuzzy surveillance video was released which seemed to show a family matching their descriptions walking across the border into Mexico.  The media speculated about reasons why the family would leave everything behind as McStay family and friends swore it was impossible.

Then, in 2013, the disappearance became a homicide investigation.   But who would be evil enough to kill an entire family, including a 3 and a 4-year old, and what was the motive?

Join us at the quiet end today for Betrayed & Buried: The McStay Family. We’re taking you back to February 4, 2010, as we follow the McStay family’s story all the way from their mysterious disappearance to the trial of their killer.
