Oma Mae Adams, an African American Televangelist whose philanthropic works endear her to the world, is beloved by many. Gunned down in front of the television station where she tapes her popular religious program, her shocking death leaves a bereft world with two questions: who killed Oma Mae Adams ---and why?
