Late one night in the spring of 1967, gunshots shattered the nighttime calm that had settled over Staunton, Virginia. Two young women — sisters-in-law Constance Smootz Hevener and Carolyn Hevener Perry — were shot at their workplace: High's Ice Cream store. Neither would survive the night.

The investigation into the brutal crime would drag on for decades. In this episode, we'll delve into the earliest suspect in the case. Make sure to listen to part two next week to learn more about the stunning conclusion of this long-cold case.
