Ep 20: On the evening of April 9, 1989, JoAnn Parks put her three children to sleep and went to bed. She woke up around midnight to the sound of her children screaming and to a home engulfed in flames. Although the fire was initially ruled accidental, Joann was later convicted of arson and murder remains in prison 27 years later, even though there is substantial doubt on the accuracy of her conviction
