When Wilson's infant son dies in his crib, it's officially called a case of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. But his wife Missy suspects it's another kind of case -- murder. Her suspicion is bolstered when she learns about a second baby from Wilson's secret past who also met a tragic fate.
His story is so compelling that it attracted the attention of one of America's most insightful true-crime writers. Did this devoted father murder his two children? Correspondent Peter Van Sant reports.

The Canal Street Brothel, June 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT
Correspondent Harold Dow gets an exclusive look into the lives of three generations of women, from the same family, who worked in the same New Orleans brothel until the FBI arrested them using wiretaps from 5,000 calls that were recorded before, during and after 9/11.
At first, it was suspected that organized crime was connected with the brothel or that it was also part of an interstate drug ring, but no evidence of either connection was found.
The Canal Street Brothel, part of a nationwide ring of brothels, made national headlines when the FBI shut it down last year.
More than a dozen women were arrested across the country, most notably three women from the same family who worked together to run one of The Big Easy's most notorious and popular brothels: Tommie Taylor, the grandmother who worked the phones; her daughter, Jeanette Maier, the madam; and the granddaughter, Monica Montemayor, a working girl who is now fighting for custody of her young daughter and is determined to lead her to a brighter future.
It's a family portrait that is anything but pretty as these women reveal the tragic stories that led them into the business.

Chris Routh was a responsible and well-behaved 14-year-old honor student who played football and came from a tight-knit family near Atlanta.
Occasionally, he would baby-sit 23-month-old Emily Woodruff, the daughter of family friends. One day, Emily stopped breathing while Chris was caring for her. She was rushed to the hospital but died two days later.

Chris always claimed his innocence and took the stand at his trial to tell his side of the story. Would the jury believe his claims of innocence?

In an exclusive interview with anchor Lesley Stahl, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and the Skakel family break their silence about the murder of Martha Moxley.
Kennedy, along with the Skakel family, says that Michael Skakel was wrongfully convicted of Moxley's murder. Though he's never publicly spoken about his cousin Michael's conviction, Kennedy, after a six-month reexamination of the case, recently wrote an article for The Atlantic Monthly, which outlines why he believes Skakel was wrongfully convicted of Moxley's murder.
"For me to come out publicly to defend somebody that basically everybody in the country feels is guilty of murder, is, from a personal strategy, it's probably not a good choice for me, but I know he's innocent," says Kennedy.
With no DNA, witnesses or fingerprints at the Moxley murder scene in October 1975, the Skakels and Kennedy wonder how Michael was convicted almost 30 years later.

Recap, Feb. 26, 10 p.m. ET/PT: "The Preppy Killer"
"I can never make up for the death of Jennifer Levin," says Robert Chambers , who has just served 15 years for the young girl's murder. "I can never make up for the pain it caused her family. I've been a bad person. Am I a monster? No. Because if I were a monster, I wouldn't care. But I do".
Rehearsed lines from a con artist? Or genuine repentance?
In his first interview since getting out of Auburn Correctional Facility near Syracuse, N.Y. last week, the man New York called the "Preppy Killer" talks about that Central Park sexual encounter with 48 Hours Investigates correspondent Troy Roberts. The interview airs Wednesday, Feb. 26, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
In a four-hour Feb. 17 interview session in a hotel outside of Washington, D.C., Chambers gave his version of exactly what happened the night in 1986 that he strangled Jennifer Levin and the time he spent in prison, during which he was charged with 27 rules violations. He served every day of his sentence because the parole board kept saying that he showed a lack of remorse.
"Every day, I know that I'm in prison, I'm in prison because somebody died and I'm responsible for that," Chambers tells Roberts. "It's not an easy feeling. You don't get comfortable with it. And it's part of my life for the rest of my life."
Over and over again, he apologized for the way he lived his life and repeatedly denied that he was faking remorse and playing the role that he has perfected as a teen-age prep school student.
"People say, 'I don't believe he's changed; I don't believe he's grown up; I don't believe he's going to be any different,'" Chambers says. " I will. I really will. I mean it's a wake-up call. You know, you may not wake up immediately, like people want you to, but towards the end, there's something that clicks in your mind, and you realize, you have to change."
Chambers said he would prefer to spend time in solitary confinement than be interviewed . "I'd choose solitary in a second," he says. "It's a lot easier than this. I don't want to be here."
He repeatedly denied that he was playing a role. "Would I like to be forgiven? I wouldn't even think of asking for that," he said. "Would I like the opportunity to apologize for my actions? Yes. Am I acting? I don't know how to act. I'm too scared to act right now. You say I'm well mannered and everything. I'm here holding my hands. I'm scared."
48 Hours has been trying to contact Jennifer Levin's mother about the interview, Roberts says, but she has not responded to the program's inquiries.
Roberts: After you killed Jennifer Levin, you walked home, you got undressed, and you went to bed.
Chambers: And laid there.
Roberts: And you slept.
Chambers: I think I slept. I don't know if I slept. I know I laid there.
Roberts: You know how callous and unfeeling that sounds?
Chambers: Do you know how callous and unfeeling it feels?
Chambers: No, you don't. But I do. For the rest of my life.
Roberts: You've done your time and this is the moment to set the record straight.
Roberts: And this is your story.
Roberts: This is the story you'll die with.
Chambers: Yes. My story has not changed. There is nothing to change. It's not a story that's pleasant. It's not a story people like. It's not a story that fits into people's perceptions. You know why? Because it's not a story. It's the truth. I'm not proud of it. No. I don't like the fact that I have to sit here and discuss it with you. Not at all. I would rather be anywhere. I'd rather be back in jail than have to do this. I'm ashamed. I'm humiliated. I'm disgusted with not only my actions that night, with so many things I've done in life. I've been a bad person. Am I a monster? No. 'Because if I were a monster I wouldn't care. But I do. I always have…

Children trading sex for money or offering themselves to sexually suggestive websites are growing problems in the United States, but equally alarming are parents who embrace some of these troubling activities.
Correspondent Erin Moriarty investigates a disturbing Internet trend where anyone can look at children for a fee. Teens and pre-teens as young as seven years old are posing provocatively in revealing clothes hoping to find fortune and fame. The websites aren't free to viewers, but charge for access. Renee has her own live web cam and website making $2,000 a month. She even has a wish list where she asks for and receives expensive gifts from anonymous admirers. Cindy is 11 years old and hoping to become a model. Her website has hundreds of paying customers. The girls' parents say they're not exploiting their children, but welcome the extra money.

Surprisingly, more and more prostitutes aren't from dysfunctional families, but are still seduced by pimps who promise them love, security and money to turn tricks.

Correspondent Susan Spencer reports on the murder of Lita McClinton Sullivan, the attractive daughter of a well-to-do family in Atlanta, Ga. In 1975, 23-year-old Lita just finished college when she met and fell in love with 33-year-old Jim Sullivan, a charming businessman, who had inherited millions. Lita married Sullivan, but saw a very different side of him after the marriage: He was obsessed with money and unfaithful.
The marriage was falling apart, but Lita followed her husband to ritzy Palm Beach, Fla., where Sullivan planned to move up the social ladder, believing that would help the marriage, it didn't. Sullivan wasn't moving up the social ladder like he had hoped and many people say he blamed his wife because she was black and he wasn't. After nine years of marriage, Lita decided to move back to Atlanta and divorce Sullivan. On Jan. 16, 1987, the morning of an important ruling on the divorce, Lita was shot dead by a killer masquerading as a flower deliveryman.
Investigators found out that a collect call was made to Sullivan's Florida estate 30 minutes after Lita was shot. Police believe it was the hit man telling Sullivan that Lita was dead. The murder seemed to have little affect on Sullivan, who remarried just eight months after Lita's death. One thing Sullivan didn't count on was an eyewitness linking him to the alleged hit man. Eleven years after Lita was shot, prosecutors were able to indict Sullivan, but he fled the country.
