S1 E1: In 1985, socialites Derek and Nancy Haysom were brutally murdered in their home in Lynchburg, Virginia. The suspects were two young lovers; the first, the victims’ own daughter, a beautiful and aloof young woman; the second, her boyfriend, the dorky son of a German diplomat. She accused him of carrying out the murders for her sake. He, in turn, accused her. They’ve both been in prison for the last 33 years. In this episode, Amanda Knox dives deep into the tangled web of dark secrets surrounding the Haysom murders, and finds chilling echoes of her own case.
