Liquor, poison and old-time religion gone bad expose the dark underside of a Bible belt community.
In 1991, Mrs. Glen Summerford lay dying on the floor of her home, poison coursing through her veins and a suicide note next to her. But it wasn't suicide, and she didn't die. And the investigation that followed turned the tiny town of Scottsboro, Alabama, deep in the heart of the Bible belt, upside down.
Mrs. Summerford's husband was the head preacher at the Church of Jesus with Signs Following, but he was unable to cast out his own demons. A heavy drinker, he was prone to fits of passion over his wife's infidelities, real and imagined. He was also a snake handler. And on the fateful night, he went to his wife in a drunken stupor and demanded that she tell him the truth. When her answers did not satisfy him, he forced her at gunpoint to thrust her hand into a rattlesnake cage! But the drama was just beginning...
CITY CONFIDENTIAL relives every aspect of the investigation and trial of Glen Summerford, a case that forever changed the town.
