I conclude the story about Eileen Franklin who claimed to have witnessed her friend, 8-year-old Susan Nason's murder in 1969. She would say her memory of the event was only recovered after 20 years. Her story would begin a debate about the validity of "recovered memories" used in criminal trials.

In this series I'll share crime stories that feature a very strange and rare phenomenon - recovered memories of murder. Is it possible to forget about a murder? Could a traumatic event, like witnessing a violent crime, cause a person to repress the memory so completely that they, in essence, “forget” they ever saw such a horrific event?
In this first chapter, Eileen Franklin recalls a 20-year-old murder. She will claim that she witnessed the murder of her best friend, 8-year-old Susan Nason in 1969 and then repressed the memory for years.
Several articles, court records and other materials were used to research this case. One resource was the book Once Upon a Time by Harry Maclean, published in 1993.

A 16-year-old boy from a well-to-do Fort Worth family commits a quadruple vehicular homicide. His attorneys will argue that his overprivileged upbringing resulted in him not knowing how to discern right from wrong. The term "affluenza" was coined to describe defendants like Ethan Couch - wealthy, spoiled and held unaccountable for their bad behavior.
I'll also describe how this same defense was used in 1924 to defend the wealthy teenaged murderers Leopold and Loeb.
