On January 26th 2011, Ellen Greenberg was found dead in her apartment kitchen in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her death was ruled a suicide, but was quickly changed to a homicide, however shortly after this, her manner of death was once again changed back to suicide. This was despite the fact that her autopsy revealed that she had sustained a total of 20 stab wounds to her neck, back, head and abdomen.

This episode explores the journey this case took and unbelievable evidence that really does appear to refute the idea that Ellen’s death could have been anything but a murder.
