Eric Baxter grew up in the small town of Dickson, Tennessee. At 32-years-old, he was running a successful chain of grocery stores that he owned with his mother. He was popular with customers and employees alike. On the night of August 20, 1998, Ericís mother arrived home to find her son lying bloody on the hallway floor with multiple gunshot wounds to the head and chest. She was devastated by Ericís death, and spent the rest of her life trying to figure out who would commit such a horror on her fun-loving son. The killing also shook the small Dickson community, which had rarely seen any murders. To this day, Ericís death remains their only unsolved murder case.
