Based on the Rod Matthews case. In 1986, Rod Matthews a 14-year-old boy in Massachusetts planned and carried out the premeditated bludgeoning death of a classmate, 14-year-old Shaun Ouillette. For months Matthews bragged to other classmates that he wanted to know what it would be liked to kill someone after having watched the film "Faces of Death". Matthews later told his friends he had picked Ouillette because he had no friends and invited him over to play pool, then Mathews suggested that they go to the woods to build a fort. But then Matthews instead took him into an abandoned warehouse and told Ouillette that he planned to set off some fireworks there. However, when they arrived Mathews attacked Ouillette with a baseball bat. Matthews then bragged to his friends and showed some of them Ouillette's body threatening them if they told anyone. During the Police investigation into Ouillette's disappearance, all evidence pointed to Matthews. During three separate police interviews, he denied having any knowledge of Ouillette's whereabouts till eventually in a fourth interview, he admitted that Ouillette had come to his house, but indicated that the missing boy had run away from home. Meanwhile one of Matthews friends who had seen Ouillette's dead body had written an anonymous tip to the police. Acting on this tip, investigators found Ouillette's body and arrested Mathews who went to trial and was found guilty. See more
