Several people who watched the preview teaser for tonight’s ‘Deadly Sins’ episode, got a kick out of the fanny pack worn by Russell Myers. There really was a fanny pack, and it turns out to be a key piece of evidence in the crime. The pack, with blood droplets and deposit slips in Myer’s and Ms. Striano’s name was found in killer Billy Retherford’s bedroom during the investigation!
