Hell in the Heartland: What Happened to Ashley and Lauria? – A 20 Year Old Cold Case Gets Hot

Twenty years ago, on the night before New Year’s Eve in the small town of Welch Oklahoma, a fire ripped through Ashley Freeman’s family home where her best friend Lauria Bible was visiting. Four people were in the house that night but only two bodies – Ashley’s parents – were found. It’s soon discovered that the parents died of gunshot wounds prior to the fire and that the teenage girls were missing, presumably taken by the perpetrator. When the case goes cold, enter crime author and investigator Jax Miller and former police investigator Sarah Cailean. Be a witness to this evolving case as Jax and Sarah walk through their intrepid research, reveal the many strange theories that have emerged and a truth that proves to be even more incredible.

Jax and Sarah are also featured in the HLN Original Series Hell in the Heartland: What Happened to Ashley and Lauria? airing Sundays at 9pm ET on HLN (CNN Headline News).

Jax Miller and Sarah Cailean are Hell in the Heartland hosts and executive producers. Lorene Bible and Lisa Brodrick are the mother and cousin of Lauria, respectively, and moderator Joey Jackson is a CNN/HLN legal analyst.
