In the fall of 2000, Jay Morris saw his wife Mary off to work. The couple lived in Houston, Texas and Mary was a 48-year-old bank loan officer. She had many friends and a successful career. However, by early that afternoon Jay began to worry about his wife - he had tried to phone her several times, but she hadn't returned any of his calls. He called her supervisor and found out that Mary had not been at work all day. Jay knew immediately something was wrong. Meanwhile, about three miles east of the Morris home, a passerby made a gruesome discovery. Inside a smoldering car he found a body burned beyond recognition. The police were notified - and the crime scene investigation unit was soon combing the area for evidence. By that time, Jay had begun to think the worst. So when he heard from a friend about a burned out car found near the interstate, he picked up his step-daughter, Marilyn - and drove to the scene. The police had blocked off the area and told them to turn around and go home. Within a few hours, detectives delivered the terrible news. They had identified the victim in the car as Mary Morris. Because of the condition of the body, it was impossible to determine how Mary had been killed. The crime was so brutal, police did not suspect robbery was the motive - but soon every other avenue of investigation also turned into a dead end.
Just three days after Mary Lou Morris's death, however, the case took a strange twist. And the circumstances were as chilling as they were unbelievable. Not far from where Mary's body was found, another woman had been viciously murdered. She too was killed in her car and, incredibly, her name was also Mary Morris. Two women, both named Mary Morris, both found murdered in their cars in the Houston area just three days apart. On top of all that, the two Mary's also bore a certain resemblance. However, to find a possible link, detectives would first have to piece together the events surrounding the death of the second victim.
