The Murder of Deana Wild

The Murder of Deana Wild

When Deana Wild fell to her death off a cliff in Big Sur, California, authorities assumed this was a tragic accident. She was driving through Big Sur with a couple she lived with, Billie Joe and Virginia McGinnis, who said that she stumbled due to the high heels she was wearing on the cliff's edge. It's not uncommon for people to fall, they see it about once a month. The investigation was wrapped up quickly and Deana's mother Bobbie struggled to move on. When the burial insurance company wouldn't pay out to help with Deana's funeral costs, she asked for the help of a lawyer she knew, Steve Keeney. Keeney asked around, and as he dug into Deana's death and the McGinnis's background, he uncovered a web of lies, betrayal, and murder that spanned decades.
