The Bonnie and Clyde of the 90s
They’ve been called the Evil Lovers. The Dangerous Duo. But one thing’s for certain. Marrying either Aurore or Peter was a dangerous proposition. Both of their spouses died in tragic accidents. Leaving both Peter and Aurore with a substantial amount of insurance money.
As investigators unravelled the tangled web left behind, they realised it wasn’t an accident at all. It was murder.
