We all remember the story of Hansel and Gretel leaving a trail of breadcrumbs to follow home after being left in the woods.
In this tale, the stepmother forces her husband to abandon the children in the woods as they cannot afford to feed them.
Imagine a darker story where the stepmother not only leaves Hansel and Gretel, but abuses them, eventually kills them, and the trail of breadcrumbs is now body parts.
However, this tale is a chilling reality for Zahra Baker, a young disabled girl killed by her stepmother and whose remains are found in a twisted trail by the same woman, Elisa Baker, who killed her.

Elisa’s aunt told the authorities and reporters that Zahra died from an illness, her parents dismembered her body and hid her remains.
Elisa’s story was that Adam dismembered her alone after she did, and both hid her remains. Supposedly she also died on September 24th but was not reported missing until several weeks later.
