It was every parent's worst nightmare
For months Bill and Denise Fischer prepared for the arrival of their new baby girl - remodeling their home in New York's affluent Westchester County and lovingly furnishing the nursery . They also searched long and hard for just the right person to care for their baby . When they returned to work, they were confident little Kristie was safe. However, she was not ...
On the evening of December 2, 1981, the Fischer's world came crashing in. Just 3 months after the birth of their beloved daughter, she lay dead in their fire- ravaged home , and the young Swiss nanny they had hired was jailed for the horrible crime.
In a sensational trial, Olivia Riner was acquitted of all murder and arson charges, leaving disturbing questions that remained unanswered:

--- Whose bloodstain was found in Kristie's room ??
--- Did a shard of glass prove an intruder set the fire??
