This documentary goes into all sorts of side stories about the military, drug abuse and the occult. The point is to show another person who might have committed the crime, and who may have been trying to do a Charles Manson copycat killing. Whether this works or not, I do not know.
It seems to me that the point is not to find another possible killer and then profile them, but simply look at the evidence and see whether or not it was Dr. MacDonald, or if there is a reasonable doubt. If MacDonald is not the real killer, at this stage I doubt the real killer could be found -- but the focus should be on MacDonald's guilt or innocence.
Sadly, the Netflix version has a cheesy made-for-TV feel that could have been cleaned up. While the film as a whole leaves much to be desired, it is even less enjoyable when it still has the commercial breaks included.
