This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed. 

Sarah's grandfather murdered her grandmother and hid her under the floorboards.

This event has long since fallen from the news, but she joins us to share the many ways it has affected and still affects her family.

Sarah is a professional woman. She's married with young children, and she takes great pride in the ordered nature of her life.

It's a far cry from the chaos left behind for her father's generation by her grandparents, whose marriage came to a violent end in the 1950s.

Sarah's peaceful existence has required a lot of effort on her part. The family continues to be impacted by the chaos, dysfunction, and trauma from the gruesome

family headline of three-quarters of a century ago.
