A critical look into some true crime cases where American law enforcement made up for lack of actual physical evidence by using devious psychological tactics during interrogation in order to extract confessions from naive suspects.
Henry Lee Lucas was known as America's most prolific serial killer, admitting to hundreds of murders, but, as DNA results contradict his confessions, will they expose the biggest criminal justice hoax in U.S. history?
The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann takes a detailed look at the disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine McCann, who vanished from the seaside resort of Praia de Luz in Portugal, while on holiday with her family.
The twisting, turning, stranger-than-fiction true story of the Brobergs, a naive, church-going Idaho family that fell under the spell of a sociopathic neighbor with designs on their twelve-year-old daughter.
As you can surmise from the title, this show deals with a wrongful conviction. Actually, four wrongful convictions that all took place in the 1980s in the small town of Ada, Oklahoma. The story is gripping, maddening, and nearly unbelievable. Unfortunately, the story itself is hampered by an over-dramatic score and a few too many TruTV-esque re-enactments. It could use more organization and editing. Some episodes seemed to be leading somewhere but ended up largely retreading the same path with different characters. I still give it 9/10 because the story itself is worth hearing. Sadly, it's a story we've all grown too accostomed to.
