Cold Storage: In May 2003, an Arizona man who'd bought dozens of
sealed boxes at a self-storage facility's auction of unclaimed
property made a horrifying discovery: the bodies of three
plastic-wrapped infants, one of which had become mummified over the
years. Police traced them to Dianne Odell, 50, a mother of eight
children, who admitted the babies were hers but claimed that they'd
died of natural causes. She'd kept the bodies for over twenty years
before abandoning them. Justice Deferred: In 1989, police had found
the remains of a long-dead infant in a suitcase in the trunk of a
car Odell had abandoned. The statute of limitations on manslaughter
had saved her then from prosecution. She maintained that the foetus
was the product of a rape by her father and, after he beat her, was
stillborn. Baby-Killer's Fate: Odell said her own domineering
mother had forced her into teen prostitution and murdered what she
viewed as 'bastard children.' Both parents were dead and unable to
contradict her. Would Odell's stories sway the jury and buy her the
mercy her babies were never granted? Or would she be forced to face
the consequences of bringing innocent lives into the world - only
to end them in cold blood...
