"A Murder On Shadow Mountain" is an original CBS true-crime drama that aired in 1999 as a true-story movie of the week, according to News Ok. It is based on the book "Mountain Madness," which details the murder of Glen True Clark and the man who killed him Jimmy Taylor, also known as Jimmy Dale Taylor. The names were changed to Barbara and Denny Traynor in this fact-based film starring Michele Lee and Peter Coyote.
"A Murder On Shadow Mountain" is a thrilling dramatization of one wife's journey of finding the truth about her husband after he is accused of shooting a man to death almost three decades earlier. Standing by her man and believing in him with all her heart, she fights to prove that her husband is not a cold-blooded killer, contrary to the physical evidence against him.
The movie is based on the case of Jimmy Dale Taylor, a man who police say murdered Glen Clark in 1967 and then disappeared. A young woman, who witnessed the entire events, told police that Jimmy Taylor shot Glen Clark because he was trying to rape her. The case was solved in 1988 after 21 years, when Taylor's fingerprints were identified and matched to the old cold case.
Taylor, who was married with children at the time, was arrested initially but later found innocent of murder.
