Thirteen-year-old Dylan wasn't eager to fly to Colorado for the court-ordered long-distance visit with his dad, Mark, who tried to placate his son with a visit to McDonald's and shopping at Walmart straight from the airport. But when the boy didn't show up for a playdate the next morning, he was reported missing, setting off a manhunt in the rough Colorado wilderness terrain. Mark Redwine and his ex-wife took to the airwaves to plead for their son's return, but to no avail. Then in a stunning twist in a national television interview, Dylan's brother, Cory, accused Mark of being responsible for his brother's disappearance, a charge the father vigorously denied. But, three years later when Dylan's badly decomposed remains were found by hikers, prosecutors did indeed charge Mark Redwine with his son's murder.

#9 - A Mother's Secret (Season 3 - Episode 8)

In the spring of 1993, two newspaper carriers driving down a rural road spotted what they thought was a doll but which turned out to be, in fact, a newborn baby's body. The coroner would determine that the baby had been born alive; but his origin was a mystery. The community called the baby Geauga's Child, after the name of the county; they made clothes for his funeral and paid for his burial. Despite dozens of leads and even a hidden camera placed at the cemetery in hopes that the child's mother would show up, no arrests were made for 25 years. Then, with modern DNA and familial genealogy techniques, the cold case was solved, identifying the boy's mother as the now middle-aged Gail Eastwood-Ritchey. Years before, as a young unmarried woman, she had delivered the baby, stillborn, and placed his body in a trash bag in a wooded area. After a four-day trial, Eastwood-Richey was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years.
