One-Off: Behind the Facade - The Robert Kissel Mystery

By Shane L. Waters, Wendy Cee, Gemma Hoskins

In this riveting one-off episode we unravel the complex and tragic story of Robert Kissel, a case where opulence and serenity masked a much darker reality. This episode takes you behind the scenes of a life that, to the outside world, seemed like a dream but was riddled with secrets, leading to a shocking and fatal conclusion.

Robert Kissel, a 40-year-old man living a life many would envy, had it all: a luxurious apartment near Hong Kong, a charming vacation home in Vermont, and a beautiful family with three young children. However, beneath this veneer of perfection, there lurked a hidden turmoil. The world was jolted in September 2003 when Robert's life came to an abrupt and tragic end, his body discovered in a storage facility.

This episode delves deep into the investigation that followed, peeling back the layers of the Kissel family's seemingly idyllic existence. We explore the intricate dynamics within the family, the possible motives behind the crime, and the twists and turns that captivated a global audience. Was this a crime fueled by envy, a tragic result of personal conflicts, or something even more complex?

Through interviews with investigative journalists, legal experts, and those close to the case, "Foul Play: Crime Series" provides an in-depth analysis of the events leading up to and following Robert Kissel's untimely death. We examine the psychological profiles of those involved, the societal pressures they faced, and the impact of wealth and status on personal relationships.

Tune in for a story that is as much a cautionary tale about the illusions of a perfect life as it is a mystery that explores the depths of human emotions and actions. "Behind the Facade" promises to be an eye-opening and thought-provoking episode that challenges our perceptions of happiness, success, and the often unseen struggles that lie beneath.
