A look ahead: Murder in a small town

MARIANNA, AR -

(WMC-TV) - A Mid-South mom is convinced that one of her children was murdered.

Frances Chambers has spent the past four years and a lot of money investigating the death of her son Demond.

Police in her small town and the medical examiner, however, say he died of natural causes.

But new clues could crack the case wide open.

"I had the most horrible feeling that night," said Chambers. "I knew something was wrong."

She added, "There's no way Demond would naturally end up right there. No he wouldn't. That's what I didn't buy. I didn't buy the way my son's hands was up in a defensive position."

How far would you go to get justice for your child? What led to Demond's death? Was it murder?

Action News 5's Joe Birch investigates. Tune in for the full story Wednesday at 10 p.m.
