At 3am on October 2, 1999, 74 year old Texas millionaire, Steven Beard called 911. Panicked and bewildered, he said “My guts blew out of my stomach!” He didn’t know what happened, just that he was literally holding his intestines with his hands. Paramedics thought maybe he had a recent surgery and stitches busted. Until one of them saw a shotgun shell on the floor.

Thus began the infamous case of Celeste Beard. Gold digger? Loving mother? Was she a victim or a murderer? Who is the real Celeste Beard?
