5 real crimes that were solved in unbelievable ways

For most people, high school friends offer camaraderie, study partners, and people to sit with at the lunch table. But for one young woman, a chance high school friendship unearthed the truth about her abduction as a baby.

Zephany Nurse was born in the Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa, on April 28, 1997.
