This is fact: Marilyn Sheppard was murdered in 1954. The rest of the crime is a haunting question mark. The Sheppard case led to the infamous trial- and re-trial- of her husband, Dr. Sam Sheppard, and launched the legal career of lawyer F. Lee Bailey. But who was the killer? Dr. Sheppard's insistence that a mysterious stranger was the real murderer led to his eventual acquittal years after the murder and inspired the plot of The Fugitive.
