Another Great Documentary by Netflix
18 December 2019 | by royhectorkabanlitSee all my reviews

Excellent, highly compelling, another great documentary by Netflix. I liked the fact that not only did they do a lot of interviews of people related to the case, but also show a lot of video footages taken during the time of the events also.

The series showed just how much of a disgrace to the tradition of the Texas Rangers both Jim Boutwell and Bob Prince were with their incompetence.

Most heartbreaking was a frail, old Joyce Lemons, a mother of one Lucas' supposed victims who was interviewed early in the series but later turned out to have died before the series was aired without knowing who the actual killer/s or her daughter was.

A Must-See documentary for me, absolutely amazing.
