The case remains officially open and unsolved nearly 40 years later. Written by Polara Communications

Trivia

The film was completed on 16 August 2004 at 5:15 p.m., the exact time the bodies of the Boles family were discovered. This was a complete coincidence, and was not realized until the following day when the producer's wife made a comment about it. See more »

Dilegence pays off!

I am so glad that this film caused the case to be reopened. The film was so well done and all facts were checked for accuracy. It is clear that attention to detail was the "watch word" as the actors did in fact look so much like the real people. Davey was fortunate to secure filming in the actual cabin in which the murders took place. I know that it took you a few months to find the Manchesters, Mom and Dad and myself - we are so glad that you made the effort! The music is just perfect and Tommy and Bobby's theme is so haunting. The boys are on my mind so often and I can feel Darlene's presence. Thanks Davey, I am glad you found me! Best to you always, Sue
