The Whitaker's were a successful, well liked family in Sugar Land, Texas. On December 10, 2003, Bart Whitaker told his family that he had just taken his final exams and would soon be graduating from Sam Houston State University. The family of four went out to celebrate, had dinner and went home which is when the dream turned into a nightmare.
