February 24, 1986, Van Nuys, California. Twenty-nine-year-old nurse supervisor and newlywed, Sherri Rasmussen kisses her husband John Reutten goodbye at 7:20 in the morning, saying she’s thinking of calling in sick. When John arrives home that night , his beautiful wife is dead—beaten and shot three times at close range. When LAPD arrives, they decide unilaterally, this is a robbery gone bad. But was it? Twenty-six years, a family that refused to accept the case was cold and long lost DNA would turn this murder case and the LAPD on its head. This is the murder of Sherri Rasmussen. Three Bullets, a Bite and a Broken Heart.
