Stephanie Furr was giving her son a bath and dying her daughter’s hair on May 31, 2018, when police knocked on the door of the home she shared with her husband in Berkeley County, West Virginia.

Monday marks eight years since Monica Gabriel’s death. No one knows what killed Monica on April 15, 2011. No one except, perhaps, her husband, Curtis Williamson.

Monica was never buried, never eulogized, never mourned. Most people didn’t even know she died.
