Netflix Summary:

A young mother’s mysterious death and her son’s subsequent kidnapping open a decades-long mystery about the woman’s true identity and the murderous federal fugitive at the center of it all. The jaw-dropping true crime story of a search to solve a 30-year-old mystery: who was Sharon Marshall, and why was her real identity unknown to everyone – even her?

Heather’s Review:

I watched Girl in the Picture the day it was released. I’m a huge true crime fan, and Netflix did an incredible job telling the story of a young woman who sadly never had a chance. What stood out to me the most were the parts of the documentary that brought to light the missteps of law enforcement and child protective services when this young woman was a child. I wonder if things would have been done differently if “Sharon” had been able to live the life she deserved.

I give Girl in the Picture on Netflix 4.5 out of 5 stars.
