March 22, 2010. Huixquilucan, Mexico. Paulette Gebara Farah, a four-year girl with developmental disabilities, vanishes from her bedroom and a massive search campaign fails to turn up any trace of her. Nine days later, Paulette’s decomposing body is discovered wedged between her mattress and the footboard of her bed, and a police inquiry rules that she got stuck there accidentally and died of asphyxiation. However, many people find it unlikely that Paulette’s body could have remained there undiscovered the entire time she was missing, and her parents display enough suspicious behavior to face accusations that they were responsible for her death and orchestrated a cover-up. This week’s episode of “The Trail Went Cold” travels down to Mexico to tackle a story which became a media circus and remains one of the most controversial cases in the history of the country.
