Nancy Pfister: Socialite's murder, bust of ex-doctor and wife continue to shake Aspen

Aspen is still reeling from the murder of Nancy Pfister, a member of a famous local family and a familiar face in the community's social scene. And equally shocking is the unlikely couple charged with the crime: Longtime Denver doctor William Styler and his wife, Nancy.

The Stylers' arrest hardly puts an end to the investigation, the speculation or the mourning of those touched by Pfister, including her daughter, Juliana, who is only now speaking publicly about her profound loss. Photos, videos and details below.
