Storyline

After a long search, the body of 13 year old Tair Rada is found in her school's toilets, inside a stall locked from within. A week later the police arrests Roman Zadorov, a Ukrainian immigrant who had worked at the school. Eventually he confesses and stands for trial, but many believe he is innocent, and rumors of a conspiracy spread throughout the social media. While some think Tair was murdered by her classmates, kids her own age, one mysterious person claims that he knows who the real killer is - his disturbed ex-girlfriend.

Don't miss this if you're a true crime fan
26 June 2018 | by sjsinclair-88695See all my reviews

If, like me, you want your true crime docs to be engrossing, chilling, mysterious to the end and, crucially, to produce a credible theory, you mustn't miss this.

It tells the story of a 13-year-old brutally murdered in a toilet cubicle at her school. It's during school hours. There's blood everywhere. How could anyone get away with this?

This is only a four-parter (which is both welcome and unwelcome at the same time), so you're introduced to the police's primary suspect early on.

Over the course of the series, the creators explore two other theories about what happened to Tair. The first sounds plausible (given when and where this crime took place); the second is mind-blowing. But can either be right?
