Synopsis:

In 1989, a shocking tragedy shattered an otherwise peaceful small Indiana community. Much-admired pastor Robert L. Pelley was found slain in his home. In his basement were the huddled, blood-soaked bodies of his wife and daughters, executed by shotgun at close range. The doors to the house were locked, and there were no signs of forced entry. Meanwhile, the pastor's son, Jeff, was nowhere to be found...

Police had a hunch that Jeff was responsible for the massacre, but they didn't have enough evidence to convict. The case went cold...until, more than a decade later, when law officials resolved to finally try to unravel the truth about Jeff and to establish a motive―that he was angry toward his father for grounding him on prom night. Then it would be up to prosecutors to prove that Jeff was responsible for THE PROM NIGHT MURDERS
