After sharing a celebratory birthday dinner with her family, 57-year-old Susan Sutton and her husband John were attacked in their home by a masked gunman. Because credit cards, jewelry, and cash were found out in the open and undisturbed, investigators believed early on that this was an inside job.
John Sutton was a successful civil attorney who had made some enemies over the years. Susan was loved by everyone, or at least that what’s most people believed. But when investigators learned that Susan had been involved in an extramarital romance with John’s business partner, they thought they may have found a suspect with a strong motive for the crime. When the business partner failed a polygraph, suspicions against him grew.
Join us at the quiet end for Blinded. The plot to kill John and Susan Sutton seemed to be well-planned and professionally carried out, possibly a case of murder-for hire. But who was behind it? The case seemed like it might never be solved, until the murder weapon turned up on a man with long-standing connections to the Sutton family.
