Pregnant nurse Olga Duncan disappeared from her Santa Barbara apartment on a quiet night in November, 1958. The mystery deepened when it was discovered that her mother in-law, Elizabeth Duncan, had been trying to separate Olga and her son, Frank, even attempting to forge an annulment. After Olga's body is found, Elizabeth Duncan was put on trial, while Frank—himself a defense attorney—maintained his mother's innocence to the end. A child at the time, Deborah Holt Larkin revisits the case that rocked her community, and brings the story of Olga herself to light.
