Unsolved Mysteries “Body In Bags” Explained: Netflix’s Unsolved Mysteries is back again with another season that tells us some of the stories that still continue to baffle us and from the evidence point of view, the official decision seems questionable.

One of the Episodes is “Body In Bags” which delves into the investigation of the death of David Carter, allegedly at the hands of his girlfriend, Tammy Williams whose odd behavior in the wake of her boyfriend’s death raised suspicion among David’s Family.

However, the Episode follows a non-linear pattern meaning there are two stories moving together and in the end, they come together. However, here’s the chronological order of the events and what happened when till Now;

The last whereabouts of David was at his son DJ’s Friday Night Football Game where he went with his girlfriend, Tammy Williams but the two sat apart in the stands when David was joined by his sister, Tasia Carter-Jackson, and DJ’s mother, Samia Corner.

In the Episode, Tasia explains that the couple, David & Tammy had been fighting and David had grown sick of her possessive attitude and “broke it off with Tammy” after the game.

Tasia, sister of David Carter believes that Tammy Williams had come to David’s apartment after he had gone to sleep the following Saturday night. Even though the investigators have not confirmed this story, it does make sense and fit with the evidence made public. Since Tammy was David’s girlfriend, she was known to have a key to David’s apartment.

Samia Corner & DJ Carter, David’s son received texts from David’s phone that he was sick and DJ should not come to his home for their planned visit but when DJ went to his father’s apartment after failing to contact him by phone, he saw Tammy Williams taking out the trash and when she saw DJ, she ran past him to the apartment, locking the door.

After opening the door, she didn’t let DJ into David’s room and said that David had gone out for a walk which DJ questioned because of the text received earlier of his father being so sick that he couldn’t talk on the phone.
