Serial Killer Larry Gene Bell
EP35: Casket Closed
Two days before her graduation from high school, 17-year-old Shari Smith was kidnapped from her mailbox. The kidnapper called her family on eight different occasions taunting them and even threatened that Shari’s 21-year-old sister, Dawn, would suffer the same fate. Eventually, the perpetrator’s phone calls stopped, but his crimes didn’t. Two weeks after Shari’s disappearance, he called the Smith family again and provided them with the directions to where the body of his newest victim could be found.
