Janet March was from a prominent Nashville family and married to a successful lawyer, Perry March. She was reported missing in the summer of 1996. Her husband emerged as the chief suspect in what investigators assumed was murder. No one was charged because there was no body, motive or murder weapon. The Scene was first to publish the police's theory about what happened to Janet March. Uncovering information missed by police, the paper also detailed the police's bungled investigation. The police had not interviewed key individuals like a crucial witness who was inside the March's house the day after Janet disappeared. Police failed to notice information Perry witheld, which would have made them suspicious.
