The final episode, which was delayed in taping in an effort to cover real-time breaks in the case, showcases the tireless efforts of law enforcement as they track new leads and incoming tips and also covers the criminal trial of Jason McCrary, a local man who was found guilty in a July trial of murdering 38-year-old Timberly Claytor.
In the conclusion of THE VANISHING WOMEN, serial killer fears are reignited as The Missing Women’s Task Force chases down a terrifying new lead in a small West Virginia town. Meanwhile, the community of Chillicothe anxiously awaits answers as Jason McCrary stands trial in mid-July of 2016 for the killing of Claytor.

It’s up to the jury to determine who is telling the truth.
