On March 28, 2001, Jill Wells, her husband, Mike, and their son, Tanner, 6, went on a shooting trip at a ranch Mike and his friends had been renting.With his father’s permission, Tanner picked up his dad’s gun to shoot some paper targets. But when the boy pulled the trigger, his mom, Jill, suddenly fell on the ground with a gunshot wound to her head. Moments later, Jill was dead.
After the incident, people were asking the same question: Was her death accidental? Some people thought the shooting didn’t make sense, and the original investigators who had the capability to provide a definitive conclusion thought it was. But was it really?
