Falling leaves, cloudless blue skies and the echo of rifle shots fracturing the crisp air of the northern Michigan woods. Two friends from downstate set off on an annual trip, expecting a weekend of beer, pool, and hunting. Instead, they cross paths with a pair of monsters… This is a true story by one of Michigan’s top True Crime writers. It will scare you out of the woods for a long time to come.

ON A COLD, SNOWY NIGHT IN 1985, TWO MEN BEGGED FOR THEIR LIVES.
In 1985, two 27-year-old friends left their suburban Detroit homes for a hunting trip in rural Michigan. When they did not return, their families and police suspected foul play. For 18 years, no one could prove a thing. Then, a relentless investigator got a witness to talk, and a horrifying story emerged.

FOR NEARLY TWO DECADES, THEIR KILLERS WENT FREE.
In 2003, this bizarre case hit the glare of the criminal justice system, as prosecutors charged two brothers, Raymond and Donald Duvall, with murder. With no bodies ever found, the case hinged on the testimony of one terrified witness who saw a bloody scene unfold-and who was still nearly too frightened to talk.

THEN A WITNESS TOLD HER CHILLING STORY
Now, the truth behind an 18-year-old mystery is revealed against the backdrop of an unusual, electrifyingly dramatic trial. Raymond and Donald Duvall bragged to friends that they killed their victims, chopped up their bodies and fed them to pigs. A Michigan jury soon had evidence of this brutally methodical execution-evidence that would lead a shocked courtroom through the heart of evil and beyond a shadow of a doubt.
