  Police: Man, mother charged in fatal shooting at gas station A Louisiana man and his mother were arrested in connection to the fatal shooting of a man at a gas station, authorities said. Keon Jarvis, 19, and Latoya Jarvis, 35, were arrested Thursday in the shooting death of Reginald Jefferson, 21, news outlets reported.

The murder of a pregnant Maryland teacher in 2017 led to a disturbing revelation about her alleged killer.

Laura Wallen, a 31-year-old world history teacher from Olney, was four months pregnant when her body was found in a shallow grave in Damascus on Sept. 13, 2017, more than a week after she went missing.

Hillsborough sheriff seeks new tips in ‘Tiger King’ cold case

  Hillsborough sheriff seeks new tips in ‘Tiger King’ cold case What happened to Don Lewis? The question at the heart of Episode 3 of Netflix’s Tiger King has remained unanswered for 23 years. Now Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister is hoping the popularity of the Netflix documentary series can help shake something loose in the cold case. A tweet from Chronister’s account on Monday reads, “Since @netflix and #Covid19 #Quarantine has made #TigerKing all the rage, I figured it was a good time to ask for new leads.“Only you can help solve the Jack “Don” Lewis cold case."Tiger King was released March 20 and quickly rose to No. 1 in U.S. streaming on Netflix.

How she got there was even more shocking, and is the subject of HLN’s Sex and Murder, new episode, titled “Killer Affair,” airing Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

While Wallen was missing, her boyfriend, Tyler Tessier, then 33, of Damascus, tearfully pleaded for her safe return at a press conference alongside the woman’s parents. But after her body was found, Tessier was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

Unbeknownst to the public, Tessier also had a fiancée — and authorities allege he killed Wallen to prevent her from telling the fiancée that he had impregnated her, according to charging documents previously obtained by PEOPLE.

“It’s like a TV drama you wish you could shut off,” PEOPLE Staff Writer Steve Helling says in the episode, which features evidence, interrogation material and jail audio released for the first time.

Despite the evidence against Tessier, Wallen’s family would never see justice. In 2018, hours before his murder trial was set to begin, Tessier killed himself in his jail cell.

Citing Tessier’s “cowardice,” prosecutor John McCarthy said at a news conference, “We were robbed this morning of the opportunity to allow the public to know the true nature and details of this crime.”

Investigators believe Tessier killed Wallen a day after she was seen with him on surveillance video at a grocery store.
