When a doctor takes a break from practicing medicine to get away from it all in rural Texas, the last thing his family expects is for the retreat to turn deadly. A small town death investigation encounters big problems in this episode of Last Seen Alive.

MAY 19, 2023 UPDATE: Rains County, Texas has a new justice of the peace, and he has updated Dr Chronis’ cause of death to “asphyxiation at the hands of another under suspicious circumstances”. Because of this, the Texas Rangers are now able to lend their legendary expertise to the investigation of Dr Chronis’ homicide. Hopefully, Dr Chronis’ case will soon be solved, and his killer(s) held responsible for their actions.
