Description

Welcome to Killing Dad Presents: The Miscreants, season two of our series investigating family murders. In the shadows of the 1994 Northridge earthquake that devastated Los Angeles, there was a violent crime spree of sadistic killers who mimicked their violence from scenes straight out of their favorite movie; The Terminator. Two men wreaked havoc from Reno to Los Angeles in a matter of days. It involves two innocent victims tortured before they were murdered, a day-time robbery shootout at a gun store, a high-speed chase with guns blazing, a kidnapping, a 9-hour standoff with swat, the crumbling of buildings in southern California ending with a failed suicide pact, a prison execution, and a bizarre twist of fate for a local hero. It’s when truth is more compelling than fiction. Exclusive interviews including confessions from the killers.

I always thought the very worst of Crystal, and swallowed the official narrative of this case. I of all should have known better or at least been just a little bit skeptical. Glad I got past my annoyances and listened.

I can't decide if I believe her or not. She's either telling the truth or she has the worst luck of anyone.

the more I listen the more it sickens me to think that she should have to spend another day locked up. this man deserved to be done with. she has already served her 30 yrs with the years of abuse she had to go through before she was put In prison. let her be free already! if anyone really cared they would release her, but noone seems to care enough to hear or read about all the abuse. keep fighting for her release.

She doesn't deserve to be sitting there for so long. whether 17 or not she was still a kid who endured years of abuse trying to reach out for help and getting the door shut on her face each time. put yourself in her shoes and tell me you wouldn't react the same way after all that. she's done her time. let her have a chance at life already!

I know that she made some bad choices but it is heartbreaking to hear what her future looks like. It is bleak. I cannot blame her for wanting to get out of a world that didn't give her chance to begin with.
