Forsaken: The Murders of Michael & Alex Smith
In Episode 68
On the evening of October 25th, 1994, a 23 year old woman frantically knocked on the door of the McCloud family in the small town of Union, South Carolina. Hysterically, she told a tale of a lone gunman who stole her car and sped off with her two children in the back seat. The people of Union supported the young mother as the media descended on the town. Police searched the woods and parks for Michael and Alex as helicopters flew over John D. Long Lake looking for the boys. No one suspected that the pretty young mother who tearfully pleaded for their return could have been responsible.
