One story features a seemingly perfect couple named Bob and Becky Klosterman. They are wealthy and considered stand up citizens in their community. Retired Navy commander, Bob and his stay at home wife, Becky have a seemingly wonderful life together, enjoying retirement. Their friends, family and the public see a model couple.

However, Becky is actually in fear of her own life. When she discovers Bob's second life at a strip club, Becky confronts Bob. Becky files for divorce and Bob is none too pleased, since this will affect his stellar reputation in the community. Before the proceedings are finalized, Bob shoots and kills her to also prevent her from being in a position to recoup any financial assets from the marriage.
