Some of the questionable events in Idaho's history are from when Idaho first became a state, but in the 1970s through the 90s there have been a lot of child abduction and murder cases that gained national attention.

Last night I came across another series that started a few years ago called ‘Murdered at First Sight’ and the very first episode covered an abduction and murder case from Southern Idaho.

The episode, titled ‘A Child of God’ tells the story of Jeralee Underwood who was abducted by a stranger and murdered in Southern Idaho. Underwood lived in Pocatello, which has been the location for quite a few of the most disturbing crimes in the state and was abducted while doing her paper route in June of 1993.
