In May of 1996, two young women were murdered in Shenandoah National Park.  The crime scene was just half a mile from the popular Skyland Lodge, and the park was crowded with holiday hikers, but to this day the deaths of Lollie Winans and Julie Williams remain a mystery. 

A new book on the case points to one possible culprit and suggests our national parks are no safer today than they were 26 years ago. Sandy Hausman reports.
