Gruesome true story of murderer Richard Speck who killed eight nursing students in one night in Chicago during the late sixties. The story also follows him to his prison fate and uncovers more of his strange behavoir before his death.
The lives of Escondido, California residents Cheryl and Stephen Crowe change one morning when they find their twelve year old daughter Stephanie Crowe stabbed to death in her bedroom. As procedure dictates, the police take each member of the household away individually to be questioned, and the remaining children - fourteen year old Michael Crowe and adolescent Shannon Crowe - are taken into protective custody until Cheryl and Stephen can be cleared. The police end up placing much of their focus on the sullen Michael, who they question without counsel and without discussion with his parents. The tone of the police questioning is that they believe Michael did kill his sister, the police lying, harassing and coercing in the process. Under the barrage of questioning, Michael eventually confesses, as do two of his friends, both questioned under the same threatening tone. Cheryl and Stephen, who are finally made aware of the questioning and the confessions, enlist the help of sympathetic ... Written by

this movie was based on a true story knowing that, it was really hard to watch it, knowing that this actually happened. My grandparents were watching it and i walked in half way through it, i didn't get to watch it very long. the story line and everything was awesome but i had to walk away before i broke the television. i mean really....this actually happened and its awful....if it wasn't a true story and we knew that stuff like this didn't really happen it would have been all the more wonderful but like i said it is true and did happen and it happens everyday in one way or another.........so in my conclusion it was great well the part i watched but make sure there isn't anything around that would break your TV if you throw it hard enough, when you're watching it!!!
