Jailhouse Confessions Turned True
26 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This murderer spent a lot of time behind bars after his murders, but not for his murders. He was in for other things and eventually got found out for all his crimes. Joe Ture killed this mother and three of her four kids. Not long afterward (a few weeks and months) he killed a couple of young women. All of them were waitresses.

In a nutshell (watch the show or "google" the killer's name for details of the crimes), this guy wanted girls and was a real sicko. To this day, he has no remorse for the brutal killings. They all took place in Minnesota in the late 1970s.

The worst part of this show - the most chilling, is what I mean - is a little boy who lived through the first murder. He was the only surviving member and, under hypnosis, he tells police what he saw and heard that night. Fortunately, the man, now in the military and based in San Diego, seems to have adjusted and has made something of his life. I can't imagine going through what he did.

Thankfully, justice took place here.....but in a strange way (such as a written confession in jail years ago that wasn't believed.). This was an interesting episode.
