Police have long believed that Ryan killed Maddox because — believe it or not — he was actually jealous of the attention she was receiving from her cancer diagnosis and subsequent survival.
After killing her, police allege Ryan then torched her remains and discarded the body in Syracuse, New York's Inner Harbor by tying it down to a cinder block.
Search divers eventually located her body once she was reported missing… but thankfully they were also able to track down Maddox's murderer about ten miles northwest of his home wearing a disguise and attempting to evade capture.
