Kimberly Jo Millen was born in December 1970 in Michigan. The 26-year-old grew up riding horses and wanted to have her own stable. She is described as a lively and cheerful young woman with a smile on her face. At the time of the incident, Kim was working two jobs, one as a cocktail server at a men’s club. She lives on a farm in Monroe, North Carolina, with her husband, Bridger Medlin.

On March 28, 1997, King returned home from a shift at the club and kept in touch with Bridger by cell phone. But sometime around 4 a.m. on March 29, 1997, a passerby called authorities to report an abandoned vehicle on the side of the highway. It was Kim’s car; most of her belongings were still there, but she and her driver’s license were gone. Police found Kim’s body the next day under some debris at the end of a cul-de-sac in the area. She was beaten and strangled and her neck was broken.

After taking measurements of the shoe that left that mark, authorities focused on three potential suspects, with Josh Griffin being the only one who didn’t appear to have an alibi.

According to the show, Josh claimed nothing to do with the murder during his interview and said he returned home around 2:45 a.m. However, in a suspicious move, Josh threw away his work shoes, saying they had been damaged by battery acid. In addition, it was mentioned in the show that his usually messy car was clean when it was impounded by the police.
