The broadcast, entitled "Temptation," featured Erin Moriarty's report on Tausha Fields, a charming 32-year-old who had been married five times and whose tall tales ultimately led to her downfall. One of Fields' ex-husbands, Mitchell Wayne Kemp, had been missing for four years when her new boyfriend, Dewayne Barrentine, began to suspect that the many stories she told him were not true. Barrentine started looking into her background, but little did he know that he would be the key to finally finding out the truth about what really happened to Kemp. Did this seductress lure her ex-husband to the place where he was murdered?
