141. The Murder of Monika Zumsteg-Telling | England

Transcript

Michael Telling came from one of the wealthiest families in all of England. When he married Californian beauty Monika Zumsteg, they moved into an opulent estate in Buckinghamshire. The couple’s life looked like the stuff dreams were made of. Then one day, out of the blue, Monika left. Michael hired a private investigator to find his wife, to no avail. Five months later, 170 miles away from the Telling home, a motorist stumbled upon a grisly scene in the woods.
