What

About the current investigation

On April 11, 1958, Richard and Lisa Izard were found murdered outside their Yoknapatawpha County residence.

Their young children—Ricky, age 6, and LeAnne, age 2—were never found, and the murders were never solved.

In 1998, Doris Hammack came forward claiming to be LeAnne Izard. Can she shed new light on this long‑cold investigation or is she up to something else?
