this story seemed to start out as a piece of fiction, but turned out to be true
18 February 2006 | by (queen,ny) – See all my reviews

When the story starts out, I thought it was fiction. I was shocked at the end of the show, to learn that it was a true story when it was stated that the teen-age bully "Red Doyle" was a marine sargeant who won the medal of honor posthumously fighting on Iwo Jima. The story seemed to hint at who was the real murderer especially when the neighbor whispers into red doyle's father ear. But without evidence or an indictment the real murderer escaped punishment. It seems as though red doyle sufferer the sins of his father. I probably would have forgotten the show had it not been for the epilogue. I am grateful that this story was presented. The lawyer played by Dean Jones reminded me of Gregory Peck in his role as Atticus Finch.
