The Mardi Gras Murder

On the morning following a Fat Tuesday celebration in Austin, a young woman’s body was found on fire with the flames shooting several feet up into the air. 21-year-old Christy Lynn Espinosa was found to have been killed before she was burned. A married couple quickly became accused of murdering and setting fire to the body and both told investigators a variety of stories about her death, and each blamed the other. Who was to blame and what really happened in this grisly Mardi Gras murder?
