It’s the time of year where we get ready to spend time with family. Not all families are what you see in Hallmark movies. In fact, Fatal Family Feuds has shown just how bad things get when tensions rise within family units.

In Season 2, Episode 4, the Oxygen True Crime series delves into the murder of Rick Swan. At first, firefighters were called out to put out a blaze at a home. That’s when they uncovered the body of Rick Swan, the owner of the home.

With the fire, it wasn’t easy for police to determine the cause of death at first. Was it accidental? Was it suicide? Maybe it was murder.

In the sneak peek for the episode, we get a look at the crime scene—don’t worry, there’s nothing too graphic there!—and hear from those who attended the scene at first. They describe the smells and sights, as they worked together to figure out the cause of death.

There was something that stood out that made it clear that this wasn’t accidental. It was how Rick’s body was placed in the home. Those who die accidentally in a fire usually curl up in pain, but that’s not how Rick’s body was found.

On top of that were gunshot wounds. Yes, wounds, plural. Take a look at the sneak peek below to get to know the basics of the story as we delve into the new episode:
