In February of 1972, three members of the Durham family were murdered in their Boone, North Carolina home. They were bound and bent over the bathtub which was found overflowing with water. Police had a pretty good idea of the family's movements from that night but could never figure out who would have wanted this seemingly wholesome family dead.

Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss the Durham family murders as well as a double murder of a couple, Jessie McBane and Patricia Mann, that occurred around the area the year before. In the case of the Durham family, rumors floated around about a crime syndicate who were rolling back odometers to get more out of their used car sales. Could it have been that Bryce Durham, who was in the car business, found out about this and had threatened to out the scam?
