Doug Gissendaner’s wife Kelly cheated, lied, and manipulated to get what she wanted. After finding the charred wreckage of Doug’s car, investigators searched for him, knowing full well that they were looking for a body and not a live human being. Kelly had been having extramarital affairs for years, but she had finally found a lover willing to kill for her.
The murder of Doug Gissendaner is as outrageous and cold-blooded as any crime we’ve ever researched. The hold that Kelly had over Doug and her lover allowed her to plan a gruesome murder motivated by her own self-interests. Her punishment could not be too harsh. But when the death penalty entered into the equation, not everyone was so sure.
