Episode +PLUS-52: Eagle Scout Heath Stocks was shaped into the man he is today at the hands of his Scout Troop Leader and mentor Jack Walls III. Jack took a lot of young Boy Scouts under his wing, like Josh Aukes and Jack’s nephew, Wade Knox. Jack was voted Man of the Year by the Lonoke, AR Chamber of Commerce because of his work with young boys. In January of 1997, the murder of Heath’s family sets into motion a series of events that shakes the foundation of the small farming town. They uncover decades of abuse and realize Jack isn’t the man he says he is.
