On September 16, 2016, police in LaCrosse, Wisconsin were called to the scene of a terrible accident. 47-year-old Todd Kendhammer’s car was on the side of the road – the windshield smashed, passenger door open, and his wife Barbara lying on the ground. Todd told the officers and first responders that a pipe had fallen off a passing truck and had gone through their windshield, striking his wife. But after additional investigation, law enforcement officers started to disbelieve Todd’s account.

Surveillance from Sasha's apartment

 

In the early morning hours of October 17, 2015, two women accompanied 27-year-old Sasha Samsudean home after encountering her in the street after a night out on the town. They did everything right – they shared an Uber with her, they walked her to her door, and they waited until she was safely inside her apartment building, before heading home themselves. But the next day, Sasha’s friends would summon the police, after not being able to get ahold of their friend. What happened to Sasha?
