If you’ve ever watched CBS’ Criminal Minds, you’re probably familiar with its opening credits during which a montage of mugshots are shown. Look closely at the center and you’ll see Susan Smith, the Union County woman who, in October 1994, let her car roll into a lake, drowning her 3-year-old and 11-month-old sons.
