On February 24, 1986, John Ruetten came home from work to find his newlywed wife on their living room floor, dead from 3 bullet wounds to the chest. Investigators concluded it was a burglary gone wrong, but the case went unsolved for decades. 23 years later, DNA testing that hadn’t been available before was conducted and who the new evidence pointed to was shocking.
In Part 2, you’ll hear the conclusion of Stephanie’s interrogation, the evidence presented at trial, and the final outcome of the case.
