The truth is that two weeks after the death of her husband, Norma Allbritton had to undergo a polygraph test. But she did not do so because she had allegedly been wounded with a shotgun as well.

The collaboration of the Sheriff’s Office and ‘Cold Justice’ allowed the interrogation of at least 50 people and the gathering of multiple evidence.
At the end of June the investigation had enough material to arrest Allbritton. After being detained on July 1, the woman was released on bail two days later after she had paid $ 50,000. 35 years later, the case is in full investigation.
