An Unexpected Death

When Anne and her family discovered the death certificate of Miriam, they realized the stories they'd been told about her didn't match up. They were suddenly faced with the fact that there was a brutal murder in their family history.

A Buried Story

6 days before Miriam's 23rd birthday, she was beaten to death by two men in the streets of Manhattan's Upper West Side. Afterwards she was all but forgotten. Witnesses went quiet, the case went cold, and the family couldn't bare to speak of her. Her story remained buried for 70 years ...until now.
