Summary

Born and raised in the small town of Palacios, Texas, Charlene Corporon was considered a nice "Southern lady" by all who knew her. She owned the most successful agricultural business in town, where she worked with lots of friends and relatives, including her son, Gary. Charlene and Gary developed a combative relationship after Gary’s father and Charlene’s husband, Willy, died in a tragic accident. Gary was allegedly verbally abusive and physically abusive towards Charlene. One morning, Charlene’s boyfriend called her house looking for her and Gary answered saying, "Charlene doesn’t look too good." When the police got to the house, she was dead, having been shot in the head with a .22. Could her own son have murdered her? Or was her troubled boyfriend the killer in this case? For Matagorda County and the small rural towns within, murders are rare, let alone an unsolved one. The town hopes that native Kelly Seigler, and her team of highly-experienced investigators, can finally crack this cold case.
