When Audrey Marie Hilley was arrested for murder and attempted murder in Alabama in 1979, everyone figured the story was pretty much over, but it had only just begun. This is a mysterious case of fake kidnappings, prison escapes, false identities, secret injections, doubtful doctors and closet fires.
