interesting movie based on real events
20 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yea, it does leave you hanging about what happened to the family after all this. Fred is a respiratory therapist and manages a sleep lab in Cape Coral, FL and live in North Ft. Myers. His son Sean works for Lincares Reliant Pharmacy as a Regional Manager in Southhaven, MS. I'm not for sure, but he may be a respiratory therapist also but he used to live in southwest Florida too I believe. Laurie Bembenek passed away a few months ago from organ failure. It's a shame she never got her name cleared and there is still a very real possibility that a Killer or killer's could still be running out there and could possibly do it again. I know that there have been books that's have followed up on this case, Cases that Haunt Us is a good one that was written by a FBI profiler but I wish they would really make a complete movie that goes the entire 30 year period the case spans. At least a dateline documentary or something.
