Murder in Central Park (Daphne Abdela)

Episode 3,   Apr 05, 2023, 05:00 AM

At night, New York's Central Park turns into a dark labyrinth, where alcoholics, the homeless and rootless, and other people on the fringes of society meet in open spaces and under the cover of the shelter of trees and bushes. In May 1997, 44-year-old Michael McMorrow drinks with the wrong people and is later found brutally murdered in the park's large lake near Strawberry Fields. Two young people from very different backgrounds are charged with his murder. But what led the youngsters down to commit such a dark and depraved murder?
