Because the movie was about his girlfriends perspective and not really about his killings. It seems people don't research the sources from which these movies are made from.

I still get angry when hearing about this case. So guilty, yet the jury didn't find her guilty based on "not being sure about her getting death penalty"... Which is not what they were instructed to do. First you find guilty or not... Then PENALTY PHASE BEGINS... dumb asses.

For anyone who was as curious as I am, Marlen Ochoa's body was found in a dumpster after the hospital fiasco

I'm sorry, I can't listen to Jim Clemente anymore. I kind of thought he was full of shit which was confirmed in his and Laura Richards' documentary "The case of: Jonbenèt Ramsey". I'm out!

I Know both of you used to be prosecutors. Do you have cases about prosecutors who hide exculpatory evidences and care only about putting people behind bars? How can they have the sentiment that justice has been served in such case? Same for defense attorneys who help a killer walk away free. It is something I have trouble understanding. how people can live like that without any remorse. They can tell me they are doing their job but, what a job!

This was one of the worst stories I've ever heard. It's a true shame that these boys (9 out of 10) have no male or no positive male influence in their lives. And the fact that it is STILL happening is a true travesty.
