Samuel Cavanagh was a murderer who killed his wife, Melanie Cavanagh, and later became himself a murder victim.
Samuel and his wife had two daughters, Bela and Simone Cavanagh. However, he started having an affair with a coworker, Elizabeth Forte, while his wife reconnected with her ex-boyfriend in Philadelphia. Sam then killed Melanie 5 years earlier by blunt force trauma to her head, and then stuffed her in a freezer in a storage unit by coercing the help of his best friend, Charles Wyler.
Sam was killed 8 months before his wife's body was found at the construction site. He was shot twice in the chest with a small caliber gun outside a grocery store.
Sam's killer was implied to be Ben Davidson, Melanie's father, but he did not confess and asked for an attorney. Davidson was a retired cop who had unraveled the skein of his daughter's death.
