Pam, Lynn, Stephany, Barbara, Kathy and Patti are all moms who have suffered the loss of a son. The women say they are in disbelief that their young, healthy, smart children accidentally fell to their deaths, as they have been classified. They say they believe their sons were murdered, possibly by a group of serial killers dubbed the “Smiley Face Killers.” Watch their story here.

A group of retired detectives also say they believe the young men died under mysterious circumstances and are investigating the deaths as murders, hoping to get the cases reclassified.
