On the morning of March 3 1993, Vivian Rice pulled up outside the Silver Spring home of her sister, Millie Horn, and immediately noticed that something was wrong. The garage door was wide open and Millie’s minivan was nowhere to be seen. After cautiously entering the house, Vivian discovered the slain bodies of Millie, her eight-year-old quadriplegic son Trevor, and Trevor’s nurse Janice Saunders.
The murders initially appeared to be the result of a botched robbery but the evidence didn’t quite add up. When police discover that the Horn family had been the recipients of a large medical malpractice settlement, bigger questions begin to emerge.
