The 1995 death of Mary Anne Holmes in Thatcher, Arizona, is investigated. Holmes had escaped an abusive ex and moved with her children to Thatcher. One Saturday, after hosting a yard sale, she and her two young daughters fell asleep in the living room. The next morning, four-year-old Ashleigh ran naked, with hands bound, to a neighbor’s house.

She wanted to know why her mommy would not wake up. While neither Ashleigh nor her 18-month-old sister Sara were harmed, their mother, was brutally abused and murdered, right in front of her girls. Although it had been discovered that a suspect had a strange fascination with Mary Anne, the case remains open.
