Episode 14: Grace Brown

When Grace Brown found out she was pregnant with boyfriend Chester Gillette, she begged him to marry her. This was in 1906, when becoming pregnant out of wedlock would drive some women to suicide instead of facing the shame. After multiple refusals to marry Grace, Chester took her on a weekend getaway to Big Moose Lake. Only Chester would return. Did Chester murder her to rid himself of having to marry Grace and raise their child, or did Grace, unable to deal with the rejection and shame, take her own life instead?
