A family's worst nightmare was realized when seven-year-old Jaclyn Dowaliby vanished overnight from her Chicago suburban home and was found murdered four days later. Despite evidence of a break-in, Jacyln's parents were eventually charged with killing their daughter, due in part to political pressure to "solve" the crime. This is a tragic story, superbly narrated, of how a normal family was victimized by the criminal justice system.
