  • Class of 2000: Great Expectations
    (CBS) It was the early 1970s when Bob Eckhart and Toni Soren met. The two self-proclaimed hippies fell in love instantly and were married only 48 hours after meeting, blending their last names to create a new romantic one: Heartsong. Twenty-seven years and two children later, their union was torn apart when Bob came home from work to find Toni bludgeoned and stabbed to death, with seven wounds to her neck. Bob Heartsong's peaceful personality wasn't all that made him an unlikely suspect in his wife's death. An unidentified fingerprint discovered on the deadbolt of the door, a series of burglaries at neighboring homes and a suspicious homeless man spotted in the area all likely eliminated Heartsong as a possible suspect. His alibi, seemingly corroborated by his co-workers, also placed him 43 miles from the murder scene and he even passed the police lie detector test. The case went cold until 2006. Six years after Toni Heartsong's murder, a determined detective reopened the case in the hope that new DNA technology could help uncover her killer. Authorities believed they struck gold when the tests came back identifying Bob Heartsong's blood under his wife's thumbnail and his DNA on her hand, providing enough evidence for prosecutors to try him for her murder. But could this affable man who said his marriage was like "living in nirvana" so brutally kill his wife? What about the co-workers who claimed Heartsong was at work during the crime? And the strange man who was spotted in the area around the time of the murder? Correspondent Harold Dow reports on 48 HOURS MYSTERY: "Peace, Love and Murder."moreless

    When Stephen Trantel didn't return home from a fishing trip, his wife Jeanne began to fear the worst. But when she received the dreaded call from authorities, what she found out was nothing she could've expected. Her husband was not dead, he was a bank robber. The Trantels lived a picturesque life in a New York City suburb. Stephen was a commodities trader and Jeanne was a stay-at-home mother. But while Jeanne was at home with the kids, Stephen was not going to work. Dressed in his suit, Stephen would leave the house every morning, but instead of going to his Wall Street job, he would scope out banks and eventually rob them. Stephen was so good at his new "job," that even authorities were in the dark - until one day and one mistake that would unravel Stephen's entire secret. What drove this man to his secret life? How did he manage to evade police so well? And what does his family do now?moreless

    For nearly a year Renee Ohlemacher was suspected in the murder of her parents, Bernadette and Greg, who were shot in their Albuquerque, N.M. home in August 2005. Renee says, upon hearing the gunshots, she squeezed herself into a closet and called police. Certain that the killer knew the couple, investigators began questioning Renee's every move after discovering that she did not immediately dial 911, opting to call a non-emergency number first. And her family had their doubts about her innocence too. Renee, who some family members considered spoiled, was set to inherit nearly $1 million from a life insurance policy. Her questionable behavior the morning of the murders and her cold demeanor in its wake did nothing to quell their suspicions. But with no physical evidence linking Renee to the crime, the probe began to stall, until a chance encounter would expose the unlikeliest of suspects - the couple's mortgage broker, Ron Santiago. Santiago, a self-proclaimed people pleaser, was facing mounting pressure to close loans and eventually turned himself in to the Secret Service, admitting that he forged two checks when he could not deliver on a loan. But as the Secret Service dug into Santiago's past, their investigation would reveal something more serious. Did the stress of his job drive Santiago to murder? 48 Hours correspondent Erin Moriarty reports.moreless

    Marine Sgt. Todd Sommer was in peak physical condition when he collapsed and died suddenly in February 2002. As shocking as Todd's death was to all those around him, perhaps no one displayed as extreme a reaction to it as his wife, Cynthia Sommer. In the wake of the tragedy, Cindy appeared unemotional and behaved in ways that did not fit the role of a grieving widow - throwing boisterous parties at her home, traveling to Mexico with friends, getting breast implants, and taking up with multiple sexual partners. Although disturbing and out of character, Cindy's rebelliousness was initially dismissed as a coping mechanism - a need to escape from her personal tragedy. But, just as Todd's case was about to be shut and declared a death by natural causes, NCIS agents discovered something that would bring Cindy under the scrutiny of military authorities. What was once thought to be food poisoning turned out to be a different type of poisoning - one they suspected involved Todd's beloved wife. Upon further inspection, not only was Cindy's reaction to Todd's death questionable, but so were her actions in the moments leading up to it, which included a plastic surgery consultation and a dubious attempt to revive him. Furthermore, with $250 in their bank account, Cindy was collecting a hefty $250,000 from Todd's life insurance policy - money that was now funding her hard-partying lifestyle. In November 2005, police charged Sommer with murder. At trial, prosecutors established her motive, but they could never link her to any physical evidence in her husband's death. Her lawyer insists there was no poisoning. Nearly five years later, after weeks of testimony, a jury found Cindy Sommer guilty. But that is far from the end of this story. In a twist, Cynthia Sommer's sentencing hearing resulted in a new development that no one expected - throwing the entire legal proceedings into question.moreless

    In January 1999, Belinda Temple, the pregnant wife of a popular high school football coach, was found murdered inside a closet of the family's home. Police soon suspected David Temple had something to do with the murder, but had no physical evidence to tie him to it. But after years of piecing circumstantial evidence together, police arrested him. What would follow was a courtroom clash of legal titans, with a hard-charging prosecutor on one side, and a legendary defense attorney on the other. Did David really murder his expecting wife, as the prosecutor charges, or is he innocent and unjustly accused. Correspondent Richard Schlesinger reports.moreless

    (CBS) On Sept. 13, 2006, police in the upscale community of Newport Beach, Calif., were called to the Newport Harbor Yacht Club after a report of a body in the water. The victim, a woman, had been brutally murdered, stabbed 52 times. Identifying the victim was no easy task - investigators had to resort to using serial numbers found on her breast implants to come up with a name: Barbara Mullenix, age 56. Why would somebody want Barbara dead? Nineteen-year-old Rachael Mullenix lights up when she recalls her childhood. "I had a lot of fun with my mom. She had a wild and free spirit, fun to be around," she tells 48 Hours Mystery correspondent Erin Moriarty. "I was spoiled. I was. It was like Disneyland. My life was really, really, really good."moreless

The families of Risken and Bourdeau say they're sure Sonia was the mastermind in both killings. Peter Van Sant reports. Then a year after Larry's Risken's murder, Sonia suffered the same fate herself - gunned down in her home, on the south side of Los Angeles. By then, she'd been dubbed, "The Black Widow of Lomita." Three murders, few answers, and clues that take 48 Hours on our own investigation halfway around the world. What we help dig up -- literally - is an amazing story.moreless
