On October 12, 2000, Mary Lou Morris said goodbye to her husband and left for work. She was never seen again.

When her husband couldn't reach her throughout the day, he became concerned. Later that day, after learning she never showed up for work, he reported her missing. It was around that time that a body was found incinerated in a car. Later, the name of the victim was released: Mary Morris.
Just three days later, the body of another Mary Morris was found in a car nearby. The second Mary had been shot in the head.
Although the first Mary had little drama in her life, the second Mary, Mary McGinnis Morris, had plenty to spare. She was having marital problems, as well as dealing with a disgruntled employee at work. Soon before her death, she saw that the fired employee had written "Death to Mary" on his desk calendar. She'd begun carrying a gun to protect herself.

To this day, police have been unable to officially link the two murders. But they happened in Houston, where millions of people live. What are the odds that two women named Mary Morris would be murdered within days of each other in the same small geographical area?
They look similar...is it possible a professional killed the wrong Mary? Then when the killer realized the mistake, they went back to fix the situation?
