Critics and Reviews
In the early days of January 2002, the grisly and shocking death of 46 year old fashion writer, Christa Worthington shook the Cape Cod peninsula in Massachusetts like never before. The story made national headlines for the tragic way that Christa’s body was discovered. It is estimated that she was lying dead in her Truro home for two days before she was found with her two year old daughter, Ava alive and beside her. However, it was not only this that sparked interest in the case. It was also the fact that nobody knew who had committed the awful act and anybody in the town could have been a suspect.
