Episode 21 -- "The Death Trap"

In 2006 a couple found themselves lost in the rugged San Jacinto mountain range in California. Starving, dehydrated, and desperate, they stumbled upon a campsite tucked away in an isolated ravine. They rushed over to it to see if the owner was nearby, but before they could locate them, the couple saw something hidden inside of the tent. This discovery would change their lives forever.
