The pious John List regularly goes to church and is respected by his neighbours. But one day the police find his wife Helen and their three children slain in their house - obviously by John, who left two letters for the police and his priest and disappeared. Chief Richland is disgusted by the murders and starts an intensive investigation. In flashbacks we learn about the history of the disaster. Written by

Before the murders, List wrote a letter to his children's schools saying the family would be out of town for a few weeks to care for a sick relative. The police were called when neighbors noticed the lights in the house going off one by one. Because it was not known if List's elderly mother was with the family, the police gained entrance to the home and discovered the bodies. Police also found a 5-page handwritten letter written by List and addressed to his pastor. In this letter List made a full confession. See more »

Judgment Day: The John List Story is another well done made for tv movie.
It's the true story about a man that was driven over the edge, and decides to kill his whole family (wife,3 kids, & his own mother). He planned it out & had a 2-week head start to get away. Robert Blake,s performance as John List was amazing. "John List" escaped from being captured for almost 20yrs. It took a profile on America,s Most Wanted to finally bring him to justice.
This movie may be disturbing to some viewers. But it's a story that had to be told. And it was done really well.
