For its most up-to-date accurate-criminal offense docuseries,The Confession Killer,Netflix is tackling the scenario of Henry Lee Lucas, a serial killer who confessed to the murder of hundreds of persons — and not only did Lucas confess, he created a show of sketching out victims and describing their deaths in element to investigators.
On the other hand, Lucas’s copious confessions proved implausible when legal professionals, journalists, and forensic DNA analysis poked holes in his seemingly infinite killing spree. These kinds of implausibilities forced investigators to open up scenarios that Lucas’s confessions had shut, and upended the closure grieving people had found in all those confessions.
Dubbed “The Deadly Drifter” in the nineteen eighties, the overall ordeal bordering the plausibility of Lucas’s confessions acquired him a new nickname:The Confession Killer. The five-portion docuseries explores the real truth powering Henry Lee Lucas and how his story revealed inadequacies in the United States justice procedure.
The Confession Killerdebuts on Netflix on Dec. 6.
