Deathbed Confession: "Victims Called Me a Lesbian"
Since 1967, nobody knew who committed the robbery and execution-style slayings of two young women in a Virginia ice cream shop. Sharon Smith knew, and almost took the secret to the grave. Turns out that being called a lesbian was an insult so bad that Smith felt compelled to gun them down. And she says a detective helped her cover up the crime.
