On the morning of Dec. 16, 1998, Ron Reynolds discovered the lifeless body of his wife, Ronda Reynolds, who had suffered a gunshot wound to the head. Authorities quickly ruled Ronda’s death a suicide. There had been trouble in the marriage, including... (more) reported difficulties with Ron’s son, Jonathan. But Ronda was planning to move on and was looking forward to the next phase of her life. Refusing to accept her daughter killed herself, Ronda’s mother, Barb Thompson, launched her own investigation, firmly believing that “someone in that house killed my daughter.” Thompson enlisted the help of world-famous true crime author, Ann Rule, to help find out what really happened. 48 HOURS MYSTERY correspondent Peter Van Sant talks with Thompson and Rule about their lengthy quest for justice. Rule – who has more than 30 million books in print worldwide – wrote a bestseller titled In the Still of the Night about Ronda’s case. The broadcast features interviews with Ron and Jonathan Reynolds, who have both endured public scrutiny over their alleged involvement in Ronda’s death. Additionally, several law enforcement officials express their opposing views on the cause of Ronda’s death. Peter Van Sant reports.
