February 3, 1986. Mike Turpin is reported missing by his young wife of only five and a half months. When his body is found a day later, police had few leads. His family and friends knew Mike to be responsible, kind and an all-around amazing young man. But his wife, Beth would paint an opposing view for Police. Mike had enemies and Mike was a drug dealer. As police honed in on who might want Mike dead, the trail led back to his teen bride and life insurance policies worth 60 thousand dollars. When the murder trial begins, stories of cocaine, sex, and betrayal turn friends into enemies and suspects into prisoners. This is the unbelievably true story of love, lies, drugs, drag bars and murder. This is part two of the story of Mike and Elizabeth Turpin.
