‘Twas the murder before Christmas in Paradise, PA.  The residents of Georgetown St. prepared for Christmas Day.

On Christmas Eve night, mom Stephanie Kilhefner ran some last minute errands and said good night to a neighbor.

She tucked in her little ones, left them dreaming of Santa Claus, while her husband Dustin Klopp dreamed of breaking the law.

There was a fight between them, we don’t know why.  By the glow of the Christmas tree, Stephanie would die.

On Christmas Day, Dustin took the kids to grandma’s house as if nothing were amiss.

By Christmas night, he had a change of heart. Dustin called the police to confess his part.

What motive, what reason, for a holiday tale so chilling?  I’ll tell you all about it on this episode of Twisted Philly.
