Former beauty queen and Akron socialite Cynthia George's life seemed charmed. She met and married wealthy restaurateur Ed George in 1984, raised seven healthy children, and lived in a sprawling mansion. Locally, the admired wealthy couple wielded power and exuded glamour. But behind such a glamorous exterior, the lives of the Georges took a sudden turn when a man by the name of Jeff Zack was shot and killed in 2001. The police discovered that Jeff had been Cynthia George's lover for a while, as well as the father of one of her children -which is suspected to be a motive for Ed George to want Jeff dead. Yet there seemed to be no physical evidence to fully connect either of the Georges to the crime. Police got their break when a woman called the police with valuable information.
