On July 5, 1987, Kenny Kunz entered his family home to find four of his family members dead and his mother missing. All of them had been shot in the head at close range with a .22 caliber rifle. The missing family member, Helen Kunz, would be found in a swamp nine months later, having also been shot in the head.
Authorities eventually charged 21-year-old farmer Christopher Jacobs III with the murders, but a jury found him not guilty. Some believe that the Kunz family's eccentric nature had something to do with the verdict, as the stories and rumors surrounding the Kunzes' private lives seemed to overshadow the trial. In fact, it ultimately took over a decade for Jacobs to finally be brought to justice.
