We all love to talk about all of the things we’re going to do to better ourselves… all of the changes we want to make. Maybe we’d like to focus more on our families, start a business, or go back to school. Whatever the case, these aspirations often remain nothing more than that… aspirations. We put them on hold for so long that we forgot about them. This is the story of 26-year-old Laura Ackerson, a young woman who was taking those steps. She was determined to build a brighter future for herself and for her children. But just as it was starting to take shape, that future was cut short.
Sword and Scale covers the underworld of criminal activity and the demented minds that perform the most despicable and unthinkable actions. We cover true-crime stories, high-profile trials, unsolved murders and missing persons cases.
