The Perfect Family
18 August 2014 | by a_baronSee all my reviews

In May 2007, Alec Kreider, then just sixteen years old, entered the home of his friend Kevin Haynes and stabbed to death both Kevin's parents as well as Kevin himself. The fourth occupant of the house, Kevin's older sister Maggie, escaped without a scratch, and this was the first of a number of false leads faced by investigators. Maggie's pristine condition coupled with her apparently cool demeanour led them to believe she was involved. There was also a false confession from two wise guys who were pulled over in a traffic stop, then there was another false lead which was either a confession or a sick teen trying to entrap someone with whom he had issues.

Kreider was never a serious suspect, and would quite likely never have been brought to book had he not confessed after being admitted to a psychiatric hospital, apparently suicidal at the death of his friend. This shock confession was followed by the discovery of bundles of forensic evidence, as well as a sick journal that went some way towards giving this senseless crime a motive.

It was only after his conviction for the triple murder that Maggie Haynes let slip her mask.

This documentary has reconstructions, and talks to among others the detectives who worked on the case.
