Where Monsters Hide

Sex, Murder, and Madness in the Midwest




An unexplained disappearance spirals into an unrelenting murder mystery.

An unexplained disappearance spirals into an unrelenting murder mystery.

In October 2014, local Michigan police chief Laura Frizzo faced a perplexing missing-person case.  It was not like Chris Regan, a devoted father and dependable employee, to take off without explanation. When Frizzo learned Chris was having an affair with Kelly Cochran, a married co-worker, suspicion fell on Kelly’s hulking husband, Jason. Soon after that the Cochrans abruptly moved to Indiana.

Sixteen months later, Jason Cochran died from a drug overdose. Friends and family rallied around the grieving Kelly. But when the coroner ruled Jason’s death a homicide, no one reacted more bizarrely than his widow. Detectives tried to put Kelly’s past into focus. But the horrific truth was hidden under a near-perfect patchwork of lies. Veteran investigative journalist M. William Phelps expertly reveals Kelly Cochran’s staggering saga of murder, revenge, and payback.
