Ep62 - McStay Family Murders

Tonight we are talking about the McStay Family Murders.  Thank you Vanessa for another great suggestion!

On February 4th, 2010 Joseph, Summer and their two sons Gianni and Joseph Jr. vanished from their home in Fallbrook, CA.  Many family and friends tirelessly looked for the McStays, did interviews with news and overall kept some hope that they would be found eventually.

The family was considered missing until three years later when a motorcyclist riding dirt trials would come across the remains of four humans, two adults and two children, in a shallow grave.

The remains were identified as the McStay family and this once missing person case turned into a homicide case.  A year later, a once concerned family friend and business associate, who was active in the search for the family, would be arrested and face the death penalty for their murders.

Tonight we will take you through the McStay family’s disappearance, discovery, investigations and where the trial stands now.
