Episode Summary

Death in a Small Town
Ringgold, Georgia is the type of small, Southern town where everyone knows everyone else's business. Or at least, they thought they did. But when Alvin Ridley reported the death of his wife to the authorities, his neighbors were shocked--in thirty years, no one had ever seen her!

AMERICAN JUSTICE chronicles the events surrounding the most bizarre case in the history of Catoosa County, Georgia. Interviews include Alvin Ridley himself, the medical examiner and the prosecutor. The voice of Virginia Ridley is heard through her letters and diaries, which seemingly support Alvin's contention that they had a happy life. And neighbors and townspeople weigh in with their views on the case that shocked their community.

DEATH IN A SMALL TOWN asks whether the case of Alvin and Virginia Ridley was murder, or a most unusual love story.moreless
