Deep Dive: Nancy Grace's "Objection!" (Week 1)

Sarah tells Mike how a superhero’s genesis was a supervillain’s origin story all along.

The Disappearance of Chandra Levy

“It’s a mess and a nightmare and maybe it’s disingenuous to think you can turn the story of someone being murdered into anything else.” Mike tells Sarah about a missing intern, a shady politician and a nationwide obsession.
