In July 2013, 11-year-old Terry “Juju” Smith Jr. was found dead in a shallow grave near his home in California -- just days after he was alone with his then 16-year-old half-brother, Skylor, who later admitted to killing the boy. Their mother, Shawna... (more), insists Juju’s death was an accident and vehemently denies accusations that she helped cover up the crime. Dr. Phil brings JuJu's parents together in search of answers. What happened to Juju? And, why does JuJu's father, Terry Sr., believe Shawna should be held liable? Shawna claims her ex-husband is trying to capitalize on their son’s death and rehash issues from their bitter divorce by suing her for gross negligence -- how does he respond? Plus, hear a letter from Skylor, who is currently serving up to six years in a juvenile facility. Find out why he says he’s not “a monster.”
