When a young soldier leaves the Army to work as a physics lab security specialist with a top-secret clearance, civilian life turns out to be more dangerous than anything she faced in uniform. After a series of strange events culminates in her being brutally gunned down, the mystery of her death spawns theories of conspiracy and serial killing that we explore in this episode of Last Seen Alive.
