And let us talk what she is up against for the 16th season of her show which premieres on Investigation Discovery channel.
Rape and Murder of Kelli Bailey
It was the night of November 2, 2011, when Kelli was returning home from her night shift at the hospital. But, she found that her house was being burgled. She couldn’t have let her house being robbed in front of her own eyes. None of us could as well.
So, she tried to go against the burglar. However, her decision was only morally right. And it was only obvious that her physical strength was too weak to stop the bulgar. As the result of which, she was brutally raped and not only that, she was beaten to death.
In a recent interview, her parents revisited their past by saying,
“A mother’s broken heart never mends, I read that sometime. And I thought, ‘Boy, that’s so true.’ It’s just a sadness that overwhelms you.”
John, Kelli’s father was first to find Kelli’s dead body. Talking about his bad memories he later relived this experience as,
“I didn’t see the blood, and I just thought maybe she had died. And then they come out and tell me what really happened, and I didn’t see the blood. Once I saw her, I didn’t see anything else. And it just changed so much for me. And then I made that phone call. The hardest phone call I’ve ever made in my life was to call Charlotte and tell her her daughter was dead.”
The investigation led to the arrest of an Alabama man Paul Everett. On the case hearing, Paul cited the cause of his action to be drug abuse.
Not only this, he also pleaded to take the death penalty out of the picture. However, his crime was far from excuse deserving so jury decided to punish him with the death sentence.
Here is how he looked like:
The criminal was arrested and got the deserved punishment, but the parents of the victim are still living in misery. And still healing from the pain that they suffered sixteen years ago.
