Tonight’s episode of Web of Lies on Investigation Discovery traces the mysterious disappearance, kidnapping and murder of Arkansas real estate agent Beverly Carter, which sparked a viral search that led to false identities and fake clues.

The episode, called Final Sale, explores what happened to 50-year-old Beverly after she met with a prospective buyer at a remote house. The buyer, Arron Lewis, suffocated and killed Carter during a home showing in September 2014.

Prosecutors in the Little Rock trial said Lewis — along with his estranged wife — lured Carter to the property by arranging the fake house showing then demanded a ransom after kidnapping her.

But the ransom plot went wrong, and Carter was killed. Her body was found in a shallow grave at a concrete plant where Lewis was previously employed.

Attorneys for Lewis argued the real estate agent died accidentally in a consensual sex act. Pulaski County Deputy Prosecutor Barbara Mariani replied in her closing arguments that Lewis’ attorneys hadn’t proven a reasonable doubt in the case.

Lewis is now serving a life sentence without parole after being convicted in January 2016 of kidnapping and capital murder.

Final Sale will feature interviews with Carter’s husband Carl Carter, son Carl Carter Jr., daughter-in-law Kim Carter and friend Brenda Rhoads, as well as Detective Jeff Allison of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office in Arkansas and a witness named Adam Nash.

Web of Lies airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Investigation Discovery.
