On the East Coast of Canada, there’s an 83 year old woman who looks like a nice, little old lady. The kind that would bake cookies and deliver them to you with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye. But, don't be fooled, Melissa Ann Shepard is anything but a sweet old woman. She's sneaky, conniving and a good actress when it comes to widowed men looking for love. This crafty octagenarian is a murderer and fraudster. And for the most part, it seems like she's gotten away with it.
In the summer of 1990, in Houston Texas, young lovers Cheryl Henry and Andy Atkinson headed to a remote area of the city, a place familiar to them as somewhere to hang out or go parking. It was locally known at the time as “Lover’s Lane”. That night would be the last night anyone saw them alive. The murders of Cheryl and Andy is a cold case that has never been forgotten. A brutal homicide.
