It was the early 1970s when Bob Eckhart and Toni Soren, two self-proclaimed hippies, fell in love and were married only 48 hours after meeting. They even blended their last names to create a new romantic one: “Heartsong.”
Twenty-seven years later, their union, which included two children, was torn apart when Toni was bludgeoned and stabbed to death at home.
Her husband Bob’s peaceful personality made him an unlikely suspect in Toni’s death and the case went cold —until six years later, when a determined detective reopened the case in the hope that new DNA technology could help uncover her killer.
Could this affable man who said his marriage was “like living in nirvana” so brutally kill his wife?
And if not, who killed Toni Heartsong?
