Narrator: SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE, WHEN IT COMES TO KINSHIP,

THE BIGGER THE FAMILY, THE GREATER THE LOVE.

BUT SOME HOUSEHOLDS CAN BUCKLE UNDER THEIR OWN WEIGHT.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

AND LONG-BURNING EMBERS OF RESENTMENT...

♪♪

CAN BE STOKED INTO A RAGING INFERNO.

AH!

♪♪

THEY SAY BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER,

BUT SOMETIMES YOUR DEADLIEST ENEMIES

ARE YOUR CLOSEST RELATIVES.

PUEBLO, COLORADO, IS A SMALL, CLOSE-KNIT COMMUNITY,

THE TYPE OF PLACE WHERE FAMILIES CAN FLOURISH FOR GENERATIONS.

WITH ROOTS IN THIS TOWN STRETCHING BACK 40 YEARS,

THE HERNANDEZ FAMILY HAS BUILT QUITE A LEGACY.

Woman: WE GREW UP DOWN THE STREET

FROM SOME OF OUR COUSINS,

SO WE HAD A WHOLE BASEBALL TEAM.

Narrator: PATRIARCH CARLOS IS ALWAYS DREAMING UP WAYS

TO BRING THE FAMILY EVEN CLOSER TOGETHER.

HEY.

OH, HEY.

HOW ARE YOU DOING?

GOOD. HOW ARE YOU DOING?

GOOD. ALL RIGHT.

HONEY, HERE YOU GO.

OH, PERFECT.

A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR KATIE.

THAT'S A LOT OF BOXES, SWEETIE.

CARLOS' WIFE, SUSAN, HAS RESIGNED HERSELF

TO HIS NEVER-ENDING PROJECTS.

THAT'S NOT WHAT I PAID FOR IT.

THAT'S NOT THE ACTUAL PRICE. IT WAS ON SALE.

THEY WERE TOTAL OPPOSITES -- MY MOM WOULD SAVE EVERY PENNY,

AND MY DAD WOULD GIVE EVERY PENNY AWAY.

WELL, IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO TELL ME

HOW MUCH YOU SPENT ON IT,

YOU CAN AT LEAST TELL ME WHAT IT IS.

YOU KNOW HOW WE'RE ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT HAVING

KATE SPEND MORE TIME WITH US?

MM-HMM.

WELL, LOOK.

ISN'T THAT GREAT?

OKAY.

MY DAD WAS ALWAYS OFF DOING SOMETHING,

GOING TO THE NURSING HOME OR GOING TO CHURCH,

GOING TO THE HOSPITAL.

WE'D SAY, "WHERE'S DAD, MOM?"

AND SHE SAID, "OH, HE'S OUT SAVING THE WORLD."

Narrator: SUSAN IS NO LESS GENEROUS,

THOUGH SHE TENDS TO FOCUS HER ENERGY AT HOME.

Lovato: SHE'S A GOOD MOTHER, A GOOD WIFE.

SHE'S METICULOUS ABOUT HER HOME.

MOTHER JUST HAD A LIST FOR ALL OF US TO DO.

Narrator: TODAY, SUSAN HAS ENLISTED

HER ADULT CHILDREN'S HELP

IN PREPARING A FAMILY DINNER.

ELDEST SON CHUCK IS ON ENCHILADA DUTY,

A WELCOME RESPITE FROM HIS DAILY GRIND AT THE OFFICE.

MY BROTHER, CHUCK, GOT A CPA DEGREE

FROM THE COLLEGE HERE IN PUEBLO.

HE'S A GO-GETTER.

IF THERE'S SOMETHING HE WANTS, HE'S GOING TO GO AFTER IT.

VERY TOUGH KIND OF GUY PERSONALITY,

REALLY FOCUSED ON, YOU KNOW, MAKING MONEY.

BUT FAMILY IS VERY STRONG TO HIM.

HE WOULD MAKE FREQUENT TRIPS DOWN HERE

TO CHECK IN ON MOM AND DAD AND WAS ALWAYS THERE TO HELP.

Narrator: OUT IN THE BACKYARD, MIDDLE SISTER KATRINA

PUTS HER FAMOUS GREEN THUMB TO GOOD USE.

THESE ARE BEAUTIFUL.

KATRINA HAS A VERY GIVING, LOVING HEART,

VERY CARING ABOUT EVERYBODY.

SHE WAS ALWAYS REACHING OUT,

ALWAYS TRYING TO GET OUR FAMILY TOGETHER.

Woman: KATRINA IS VERY FUN LOVING, VERY GENEROUS.

SHE GETS ALONG WITH WITH EVERYBODY FAIRLY WELL.

Narrator: HER OLDER SISTER BRENDA, ON THE OTHER HAND,

IS MORE THE CONTROLLING TYPE.

BRENDA IS OUTSPOKEN.

IT COMES FROM HER HEART,

BUT BRENDA AND I WERE ALWAYS COMPETITIVE.

WE USED TO FIGHT LIKE CATS AND DOGS.

WE GREW UP VERY CLOSE AND A YEAR AND A HALF APART,

AND WE'VE HAD OUR LITTLE SPATS AND DISAGREEMENTS,

BUT WE HAVE THE CLOSEST BOND.

IT'S JUST MY TREASURE IN LIFE, HOW GOOD OF A SISTER,

A ROLE MODEL BRENDA HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO ME IN MY LIFE.

I LOVE HER TO DEATH.

WHO LIVES ACROSS THE STREET FROM HER PARENTS.

Lovato: SHE WAS OVER THERE QUITE A BIT TO HELP.

SHE HAS A VERY GOOD HEART.

SHE'LL HELP ANYONE.

Narrator: JUST AS LONG AS SHE CAN DO IT HER WAY.

VANESSA IS ONE WHO, IF YOU TELL HER TO DO SOMETHING,

SHE'S GOING TO DO THE OPPOSITE.

WOW!

WHAT IS THIS, HUH?

HOMEMADE.

THIS IS HOMEMADE?

LET ME SEE THIS. RIGHT.

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!

I JUST... I DIDN'T SLAVE IN THE KITCHEN ALL DAY

SO THAT YOU COULD EAT EVERYTHING!

OH, YOU SLAVED IN THE KITCHEN?

MM-HMM.

YOU DIDN'T GO TO THE BAKERY TO GET THOSE, HUH?

NO.

Narrator: VANESSA'S SON ANTHONY HAS EMBRACED

HIS MOTHER'S WORK-SMART PHILOSOPHY.

ANTHONY WAS A CUTE YOUNG KID GROWING UP.

HE'S A HANDSOME YOUNG MAN.

ANTHONY WAS JUST A MISCHIEVOUS BOY,

JUST ALWAYS VERY MISCHIEVOUS.

HE WAS JUST A GOOFBALL, ALWAYS DOING SOMETHING SILLY.

BUT HE HAD A LOT OF LOVE, LAUGHTER.

WE GOT TO GO.

GATHERS AT CARLOS AND SUSAN'S HOME.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST...

OH!

ANTHONY, THAT PIECE THAT SEBASTIAN HAS THERE,

THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE ON THE BASEPLATE, I THINK.

Narrator: EAGER TO FINISH HIS PROJECT,

CARLOS RECRUITS HIS GRANDSON, ANTHONY,

AND ANTHONY'S COUSIN, SEBASTIAN, TO LEND A HAND.

ANTHONY AND SEBASTIAN WERE PRETTY CLOSE,

AND THEY'RE WORKING ON BIKES,

OR THEY'RE UNDER THE HOOD OF A CAR.

ANTHONY WAS THE LITTLE-BROTHER- HE-NEVER-HAD KIND OF THING.

THEY SHARE A LOT OF SIMILAR INTERESTS,

THE WHOLE FAMILY PULLS TOGETHER.

I WOULD GO DOWN THERE TO HELP MY MOTHER CLEAN HER HOME.

VANESSA WAS VERY GOOD TO GO OVER

Man: THE FIRE DEPARTMENT GOES IN.

THEY FIND THE SMALL FIRE IN THE BASEMENT,

PUT THE FIRE OUT AND THEN DISCOVERED

THAT THE FIRE WAS ACTUALLY THE BODY OF SUSAN HERNANDEZ.

Narrator: THE QUESTION NOW -- WAS THIS JUST AN AWFUL ACCIDENT

OR SOMETHING MORE SINISTER?

Man: AS I'M MAKING MY WAY DOWNSTAIRS,

I'M NOTICING THERE'S NOW MORE AND MORE BLACKENING OF THE WALLS

AND MORE AND MORE SMOKE DAMAGE,

AND THE HEAT SEEMS TO BE INTENSIFYING.

Man: DOWNSTAIRS WAS HEAVY SOOT, HEAVY SMOKE,

AND IT'S LIKE WALKING INTO A BLACK-AND-WHITE PHOTO

WHERE EVERYTHING IS SHADES OF GRAY.

Man: AND THE BODY OF MS. HERNANDEZ

IS LAYING JUST A FEW FEET TO THE LEFT OF

THE BASE OF THE STAIRS.

SO THE RIGHT FOOT, PART OF THE RIGHT LEG

HAVE BEEN BURNED OFF COMPLETELY.

THE RIGHT HAND WAS GONE.

PART OF THE ARM WAS GONE COMPLETELY,

AND THEN THE REST OF THE BODY IS BURNT.

Narrator: THE CHARRING INDICATES AN ESPECIALLY INTENSE FIRE,

AND INVESTIGATORS SOON DISCOVER WHY.

SEE THESE HOLES IN THE CARPET, THESE BURN MARKS?

THERE WAS DEFINITELY AN ACCELERANT.

BECAUSE THE DOOR WAS SHUT, THERE WASN'T ENOUGH OXYGEN IN THE ROOM

TO REALLY GET THIS FIRE GOING.

IS THIS A POSSIBILITY FOR THE ACCELERANT?

THAT WILL DO IT.

AT THAT POINT, WE HAD AN ARSON CASE ON OUR HANDS.

Narrator: BUT THERE'S MORE TO THIS CRIME

THAN JUST THE STRIKE OF THE MATCH.

I START TO SEE BLOOD SPATTER ON THE WALLS

ON A COUPLE METAL CABINETS,

AND WE FOUND SOME CARDBOARD BOXES

THAT HAD BLOOD-SPATTER STAINS ON THEM AS WELL.

Man: ON THE BACK OF HER HEAD,

THERE WAS TWO DEFINITE IMPRESSIONS

WHERE YOU SEE THE SKULL WAS ACTUALLY CRUSHED IN.

IT DEFINITELY LOOKS LIKE BLUNT-FORCE TRAUMA,

PROBABLY AN AXE OR A LARGE HAMMER.

THESE THINGS DID MAKE IT VERY APPARENT THAT IT WAS A HOMICIDE.

Narrator: WHAT'S MORE, INVESTIGATORS DETERMINE

SUSAN WAS KILLED THE DAY BEFORE THE FIRE STARTED.

Man: SO AFTER THE KILLING TOOK PLACE,

SOMEBODY MADE AN EFFORT TO DESTROY THE EVIDENCE

BY LIGHTING THE BODY ON FIRE.

OTHER THAN THAT, THERE WASN'T A WHOLE LOT OF EVIDENCE TO GO ON.

Narrator: DETECTIVES HOPE

A SEARCH UPSTAIRS WILL YIELD MORE CLUES.

AT A GLANCE, THE FIRST FLOOR LOOKS LARGELY UNDISTURBED.

Man: THE FIRE DIDN'T SPREAD TO THE REST OF THE HOUSE.

JUST THE SMOKE AND THE HEAT DID.

IT WAS CONTAINED WITHIN THAT BASEMENT.

Narrator: DETECTIVES SOON DISCOVER A TELLING CLUE.

SEE THAT, DETECTIVE?

YEP. IT LOOKS LIKE FORCED ENTRY.

IT LOOKS LIKE HE KICKED IT IN AT THE BOTTOM THERE.

Man: WE NOTICED THE DOOR LEADING INTO THE KITCHEN.

IT APPEARS THAT IT'S BEEN FORCED OPEN, SO MY THOUGHT WAS,

"THERE'S BEEN A BURGLARY OF SOME TYPE."

LET'S GO AND CHECK, SEE IF ANYTHING IS MISSING.

Narrator: POLICE HAVE KATRINA WALK THEM THROUGH THE HOUSE,

AND SHE NOTICES RIGHT AWAY SOME THINGS HAVE BEEN TAKEN.

WHAT IS IT?

SHE ALWAYS HAD HER PURSE AND HER KEYS AND HER PHONE HERE.

Narrator: SUSAN'S FINANCIAL LEDGER IS ALSO GONE.

Livecchi: MY MOTHER WAS WORRIED.

ONCE MY FATHER PASSED AWAY, SHE NO LONGER HAD INCOME FROM HIM,

SO SHE STARTED KEEPING A LEDGER ON ALL OF HER EXPENSES.

Man: NOTHING ELSE WAS DISTURBED IN THE HOUSE.

SOMEBODY KNEW EXACTLY WHERE THIS ITEM WAS THEY WERE LOOKING FOR,

MA'AM, CAN I HELP YOU?

WELL, I SAW SOMETHING THAT I THINK YOU SHOULD KNOW.

SHE'S A NEIGHBOR, AND SHE SAID SHE HAD SEEN A BLUE CAR

Narrator: DETECTIVES FOLLOW UP WITH OTHER NEIGHBORS.

IF YOU DON'T MIND, I HAVE A COUPLE MORE QUESTIONS

BASED ON SOME NEW INFORMATION WE JUST RECEIVED.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT THERE WAS A BLUE SEDAN PARKED HERE.

THE DETECTIVES ASK ME ABOUT A BLUE CAR,

AND TO MY KNOWLEDGE, THAT BLUE IMPALA BELONGED TO SEBASTIAN.

Narrator: COUSIN SEBASTIAN,

HE WAS PRETTY EXCITED ABOUT THINGS.

HE WANTED TO TAKE CONTROL OF THE INVESTIGATION.

HE LITERALLY THREATENED ME, "YOU BETTER GET THIS RIGHT.

YOU SCREW THIS UP. YOU GOT ME TO DEAL WITH."

Narrator: DETECTIVES WONDER IF CHUCK IS A GRIEVING SON

OR A GUILT-RIDDEN SUSPECT.

Man: BUT WE DIDN'T KNOW CHUCK'S MOTIVES AT THAT POINT.

WE DIDN'T KNOW IF CHUCK DID, IN FACT,

WANT THE MONEY FROM HIS MOM,

WANT TO TAKE OVER THE PROPERTY THAT SHE OWNED,

WANTED TO TAKE FULL CONTROL OVER THE FAMILY.

THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN, IN MY MIND,

THE MOTIVE THAT HE WOULD HAVE HAD TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

Narrator: BUT HE'S GOT A SEEMINGLY AIRTIGHT ALIBI.

WHERE WERE YOU ON THE DAY OF THE MURDER?

I WAS AT WORK.

POLICE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO LET CHUCK GO,

AT LEAST FOR NOW.

WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT. THANKS.

BUT WHILE DETECTIVES PUT THE HERNANDEZ SON

ON THE BACK BURNER...

ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER REACHES OUT.

THAT'S A GREAT PLACE TO START AGAIN.

WE WERE SITTING AT OUR DESKS.

WE HAD RECEIVED A CALL FROM VANESSA.

SHE SAYS, "CAN YOU MEET ME OVER HERE AT MY HOUSE?

I WANT TO SHOW YOU GUYS SOMETHING."

SO WE WENT OVER THERE.

I WALK UP TO VANESSA'S DOOR.

HI, MA'AM.

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU, BUT WE JUST HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS.

SHE SAYS, "COME ON IN."

TRUST ME, YOU'RE GOING TO WANT TO SEE THIS.

Narrator: NOT THE USUAL REACTION FROM A SUSPECTED KILLER.

TO DETECTIVE SHAW, VANESSA CLAIMS

SHE'S FOUND THE MURDER WEAPON.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IT'S THE MURDER WEAPON?

LOOK.

IT VANISHED JUST AROUND THE TIME THAT MY MOM WAS KILLED,

AND A FEW DAYS LATER, IT JUST SHOWED BACK UP.

SHE HAD WRAPPED IT UP IN A PLASTIC BAG

AND LAID IT ON A TOOLBOX.

IT APPEARED THERE WERE SOME SORT OF RED-TYPE

SUBSTANCE ON THAT HAMMER.

WELL, WE WERE EXCITED, I MEAN, AT THAT POINT.

Narrator: BUT IS IT THE MURDER WEAPON?

AND IF SO, HOW DID IT GET HERE?

WHO WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO THIS HOUSE BESIDES YOU?

MY SON.

YOU THINK ANTHONY DID THIS?

WELL, I DON'T KNOW. OKAY?

ALL I KNOW IS THAT WHOEVER PUT THAT HAMMER

THERE PUT IT THERE JUST TO FRAME ME.

Narrator: A SON SETTING UP HIS OWN MOTHER?

COULD VANESSA'S ACCUSATION POSSIBLY BE TRUE?

Man: VANESSA WAS KIND OF AN EMOTIONAL ROLLER-COASTER.

SHE'S VERY PARANOID ABOUT WHY THIS HAMMER WAS GONE,

AND NOW IT'S BACK.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO NOW?

I MEAN, WHOEVER DID THIS IS OUT THERE.

HE CAN PROBABLY SEE ME LOOKING, TALKING TO YOU.

VANESSA, PLEASE RELAX.

WHAT ABOUT YOUR NEPHEW, SEBASTIAN?

DOES HE HAVE ACCESS TO THE HOUSE?

I GUESS.

HE COMES AROUND A LOT, AND, YOU KNOW, HE'S LIKE ANTHONY.

THEY COME AND THEY GO.

Narrator: CLEARLY, POLICE CAN'T DISMISS ANTHONY OR SEBASTIAN

AS SUSPECTS,

OR MAYBE SHE'S JUST AVERTING BLAME.

WHERE WERE YOU ON THE DAY THAT YOUR MOTHER DIED?

AT LUNCHTIME, I WENT OUT WITH SOME FRIENDS

AND HAD SOME DRINKS.

Man: VANESSA TOLD ME SHE WOULD GO TO WORK

AT 4:30 IN THE MORNING,

GET OFF AROUND 1 OR 2 IN THE AFTERNOON

AND IMMEDIATELY GO FOR LUNCH OR SOMETHING.

BUT AT THIS POINT IN TIME, WE WEREN'T VERY CONFIDENT

THAT WHAT SHE WAS TELLING US WAS THE TRUTH.

SHE RELIED A LOT ON HER MOTHER, AND AFTER THE MURDER,

THERE WAS AN INSURANCE POLICY,

SO MAYBE VANESSA WAS THE ONE THAT KILLED HER MOTHER.

WAS SHE TRYING TO SET UP ANTHONY?

Narrator: DETECTIVES HAVE FOUR SUSPECTS ON THEIR HANDS

AND NO EASY ANSWERS.

DID WAYWARD COUSIN SEBASTIAN DRIVE HIS BLUE CAR

TO SUSAN'S HOME AND COMMIT MURDER?

DID GRANDSON ANTHONY HAMMER SUSAN TO DEATH

THEN STASH THE BLOODY WEAPON IN HIS OWN MOTHER'S HOUSE?

DID ELDEST CHILD CHUCK COMMIT COLD-BLOODED MURDER

TO GET HIS HANDS ON THE FAMILY'S MONEY,

OR DID VANESSA KILL HER MOTHER AND FRAME HER OWN SON?

WHILE DETECTIVES PUZZLE OVER THEIR SUSPECT LIST,

A NEW DISCOVERY TURNS UP,

ONE THAT WILL TURN THIS ENTIRE INVESTIGATION ON ITS HEAD.

Narrator: POLICE INVESTIGATING THE MURDER OF SUSAN HERNANDEZ

HAVE A FAMILY OF SUSPECTS

BUT NO HARD EVIDENCE TYING ANY OF THEM TO THE CRIME.

THAT'S ABOUT TO CHANGE.

Man: DURING THE INVESTIGATION, ONE OF THE THEORIES

WAS THAT ANTHONY HAD RECEIVED A LARGE AMOUNT OF MONEY

FROM HIS GRANDMOTHER, SUSAN HERNANDEZ,

TO RE-ROOF HER ROOF.

ANTHONY'S STORY WAS THAT HE HAD ORDERED THE MATERIALS.

THE ROOF WAS GOING TO BE DONE.

YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING WAS GOOD TO GO.

♪♪

Narrator: DETECTIVES HEAD TO THE ROOFING SUPPLY COMPANY

TO CORROBORATE HIS STORY.

CALL ME BACK. THANK YOU.

HI. ARE YOU THE MANAGER HERE?

YES. HOW CAN I HELP YOU GENTLEMEN?

WE UNDERSTAND THAT A MAN BY THE NAME OF ANTHONY HERNANDEZ

MIGHT HAVE COME IN HERE

AND PURCHASED SOME ROOFING EQUIPMENT.

Man: THE GENTLEMAN AT THE ROOFING SUPPLY COMPANY

STATED THAT ANTHONY CAME IN AND INQUIRED ABOUT ROOFING MATERIALS

BUT THAT HE NEVER PAID FOR THEM, NEVER PUT ANY MONEY DOWN.

SO WHERE WAS THE MONEY THAT SUSAN GAVE TO ANTHONY?

Narrator: CURIOSITY PIQUED,

DETECTIVES DECIDE TO TAKE ANOTHER LOOK

AT GRANDSON ANTHONY.

♪♪

MEANTIME, ACROSS TOWN...

ALL RIGHT. COME ON, BOY. LET'S GO FOR A WALK.

GOOD BOY.

...THERE'S AN UNLIKELY DISCOVERY.

Man: THIS GUY IS WALKING HIS DOG.

HE SEES A CELL PHONE PARTIALLY BURIED IN THE MUD,

PULLS IT OUT AND CLEANS IT UP...

COME ON, BUDDY.

ATTACHES A CHARGER TO IT, GETS IT TO TURN ON.

HE FINALLY GETS IT TO WORK,

TRYING TO FIND OUT WHO THE OWNER IS,

GOING BACK THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHS.

Narrator: HE RECOGNIZES ONE SMILING FACE

AS THE MURDER VICTIM FROM THE NIGHTLY NEWS.

AND HE SAYS, "OH, MY GOSH.

I THINK THIS IS SUSAN HERNANDEZ' PHONE."

Narrator: THE GOOD SAMARITAN IMMEDIATELY NOTIFIES POLICE.

♪♪

PHONE IN HAND, DETECTIVES CAN NOW COMPARE ITS MOVEMENTS

TO THE DATA SUBPOENAED

FROM GRANDSON ANTHONY'S CELLULAR CARRIER.

THEY WERE ABLE TO DO A TRIANGULATION

THE DATE THE KILLING TOOK PLACE.

IT WAS SHOWING WHERE ANTHONY'S PHONE WAS AT, AT THAT TIME.

Narrator: AT FIRST, THE TRIANGULATION DATA

SYNCS UP WITH ANTHONY'S VERSION OF EVENTS.

WELL, IT SHOWED THAT ANTHONY REALLY WAS OVER

AT SUSAN'S HOUSE THE AFTERNOON BEFORE SHE WAS KILLED.

Narrator: BUT AS THE HOURS PASS, THINGS GET MURKIER.

THE DATA SHOWS THAT ANTHONY MADE A SECOND TRIP

TO SUSAN'S HOUSE ON THE MORNING OF THE MURDER,

A DAMNING DETAIL HE LEFT OUT OF HIS ORIGINAL STORY.

Man: AFTER HE HAD GONE TO SUSAN'S HOUSE A SECOND TIME,

THEN HER PHONE STARTED TRACKING WITH HIS PHONE,

INDICATING THAT HE HAD HER PHONE WITH HIM.

♪♪

Narrator: IT'S ENOUGH FOR AN ARREST WARRANT.

♪♪

POLICE CORNER THE GRANDSON AT HIS GARAGE

AND TAKE HIM INTO CUSTODY.

Man: AFTER ANTHONY WAS ARRESTED,

WE DID A SEARCH WARRANT ON THE HOUSE.

INSIDE THE GARAGE, BRAND-NEW TOOLS,

ALL KINDS OF BRAND-NEW TOOLS,

EVEN DOWN TO A LITTLE CART THAT HAS PARTS ON IT AND STUFF.

Narrator: BUT NONE OF THOSE WERE MEANT TO REPAIR SUSAN'S ROOF.

Man: THERE'S THE CAR, A BRAND-NEW PAINT JOB,

A BRAND-NEW TRANSMISSION KIT,

ALMOST ANYTHING TO DO WITH TAKING THE CAR APART,

PUTTING THE CAR BACK TOGETHER BRAND-NEW.

ROOFING, IT'S NOT A $200 OR $300 JOB.

IT'S AN EXPENSIVE JOB.

AND ALL OF THIS MONEY CAME FROM GRANDMOTHER.

Narrator: A TRANSACTION ANTHONY ATTEMPTED TO ERASE

IN HIS BACKYARD.

Man: WHEN THEY SEARCH ANTHONY'S HOUSE,

THEY FOUND A BARBECUE PIT,

AND THEY FOUND SUSAN'S JOURNAL THAT KEPT TRACK OF MONEY.

AS ANTHONY IS LED AWAY...

INVESTIGATORS FINALLY PIECE TOGETHER

A PLAUSIBLE THEORY OF WHAT HAPPENED.

DAD, WHERE ARE WE GOING?

WE'RE GOING TO GO TO GRANDMA'S HOUSE.

COME ON. LET'S GO.

Man: WE THINK THAT ANTHONY GOES OVER

TO HIS GRANDMOTHER'S NEIGHBORHOOD.

THEN HE DROPS HIS DAUGHTER AT VANESSA'S HOUSE

ACROSS THE STREET,

THEN WALKS OVER TO HAVE A DISCUSSION

WITH MS. SUSAN HERNANDEZ.

HE KNOCKS ON THE DOOR.

HE GOES INSIDE.

HE STARTS TALKING WITH HIS GRANDMOTHER.

Narrator: THINGS QUICKLY GROW TENSE

AS SUSAN CONFRONTS ANTHONY ABOUT HER UNREPAIRED ROOF.

YOU NEVER INTENDED TO FIX THIS ROOF.

HOW CAN YOU EVEN SAY THAT?

SHE WANTED THE ROOF DONE, OR SHE WANTED THE MONEY BACK.

"GIVE ME THE MONEY TODAY, OR I'M CALLING THE POLICE."

I'LL TAKE CARE OF IT.

ALL RIGHT? I'LL TAKE CARE OF IT.

BUT THE MONEY WAS GONE.

HE'S THINKING, "I DON'T KNOW HOW I'M GOING TO

GET THIS MONEY BACK TO GRANDMOTHER.

I DON'T HAVE IT."

Narrator: ANTHONY HEADS DOWN TO SUSAN'S BASEMENT.

HEY, GRANDMA.

COULD YOU COME DOWN HERE FOR A MINUTE?

HE LURES HIS GRANDMOTHER DOWNSTAIRS.

♪♪

ANTHONY?

♪♪

HE ATTACKS HER WITH THE HAMMER, STARTS STRIKING HER IN THE HEAD.

AFTER HE KILLS HER,

HE TAKES HER WALLET, HER PURSE.

Narrator: HE ALSO GRABS HER LEDGER.

HE GOES BACK ACROSS THE STREET TO HIS MOM'S HOUSE.

DADDY? I'M ON THE PHONE.

OKAY. ALL RIGHT. COME ON. LET'S GO.

LET'S GET YOUR STUFF. ALL RIGHT?

BUT I'M NOT DONE WITH MY DRAWING.

THAT'S OKAY. I DON'T CARE. WE'RE GOING TO GO HOME.

WE'RE GOING TO FINISH THE DRAWING AT HOME, OKAY?

HE PICKS HIS DAUGHTER UP, AND THEN THEY LEAVE.

Narrator: ANTHONY MAKES IT BACK HOME,

DITCHING SUSAN'S CELL PHONE ALONG THE WAY.

HE ATTEMPTS TO BURN THE ONLY REMAINING EVIDENCE

OF HIS MOTIVE,

BUT HIS GUILTY MIND KEEPS RACING.

Man: HE'S THINKING ABOUT, "MY GRANDMOTHER

IS LAYING DEAD IN THE BASEMENT

WITH A LARGE HOLE IN THE BACK OF HER HEAD.

THEY'RE GOING TO FIND STUFF IN THAT HOUSE

THAT COULD IMPLICATE ME TO THIS MURDER.

HE THINKS ABOUT IT OVERNIGHT.

THE NEXT MORNING, HE GETS UP.

HE DRIVES BACK OVER TO THE HOUSE.

HE NOW KICKS THE DOOR OPEN, MAKES IT LOOK LIKE A BURGLARY,

GOES BACK DOWNSTAIRS,

PUTS ACCELERANT ON HIS GRANDMOTHER...

♪♪

LIGHTS HER ON FIRE, GOES BACK UP THE STAIRS, SHUTS THE DOOR.

Narrator: PRAYING THAT HIS MURDEROUS MISDEEDS

WILL ALL TURN TO ASH.

♪♪

ANTHONY HERNANDEZ IS CHARGED WITH ARSON

AND FIRST-DEGREE MURDER.

AT TRIAL, THE JURY DOESN'T TAKE LONG TO REACH A VERDICT.

ANTHONY WAS FOUND GUILTY

OF FIRST-DEGREE PREMEDITATED MURDER,

AND THE SENTENCE WAS LIFE IN PRISON WITHOUT PAROLE.

ANTHONY'S COUSIN, SEBASTIAN, SUSAN'S SON, CHUCK,

AND HER DAUGHTER, VANESSA,

ARE FOUND TO HAVE NO INVOLVEMENT IN THE MURDER.

JUSTICE MAY BE DONE,

BUT IT DOES LITTLE TO HEAL THIS SHATTERED FAMILY.

Woman: IT'S A NIGHTMARE.

WE'RE TRYING TO MOVE ON, MOVE FORWARD.

THAT'S WHAT OUR PARENTS WOULD WANT.

THEY'D WANT US TO BE HAPPY AND SMILE AND LAUGH.

WE HAVE A MEMORIAM TO GO SEE MY MOM

IN THE PLACE THAT SHE LOVED,

UNDER THE TREES AND THE BIRDS AND WATCHING THE BALL GAMES.

IT'S PRECIOUS TO US.

Livecchi: IT HAS TORN OUR FAMILY APART.

IT'S JUST HARD TO GO THROUGH EACH DAY

WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO MAKE THAT PHONE CALL

I MADE TO MOM EVERY DAY TO SHARE EVERYTHING WE DID.

AND I JUST PRAY THAT OTHER FAMILIES, IF THEY SEE THIS,

IF THEY HAVE A TROUBLED PERSON IN THEIR FAMILY,

THAT THEY GET THEM HELP.
