The case of murdered teenager Marlisa Wells of Austell, Georgia, will be discussed once more in a television documentary. This time, Grave Secrets on Investigation Discovery re-enacts the shocking tale. Marlisa Wells was a 16-year-old girl who was found dead in her basement bathroom after her on-again-off-again boyfriend, Matthew Wilkins, a bright-eyed college basketball player, stabbed her to death. The case is noteworthy because Marlisa, a church songstress, was murdered because she thought that she was pregnant, although that turned out not to be the case.
