On "Shocking Family Secrets," Travis Vining was having inexplicable medical issues -- major back pains, frequent fevers and migraines, sleep apnea -- so what was wrong? To try and get to the root of the matter, Vining started journaling. While doing so, he triggered a horrifying memory he'd blocked from 1987.
"Terror welled up inside of me," Vining said. "My father was a serial killer and I knew all about it!"
He recalled a story his father, John, had told him in a bar one time. "Having him describe to me killing two other people in a way that seemed to bring out pride ... was not something I was ready to deal with at the time."
This memory came back almost 20 years after it occurred. Travis went to police and they asked him to wear a wire and go talk to his father, who was already in prison for other crimes.
