Hear from the woman whose testimony helped police solve a mysterious hit and run attack that had stymied investigators for five years.
In 1989, real estate developer Joseph McLaughlin and his wife Marianne were walking from their car in a Boston parking garage when she was hit and run over. The driver of the car backed up over her again before fleeing the scene, leaving Marianne at the brink of death. Incredibly, she recovered.
AMERICAN JUSTICE® chronicles the long and frustrating investigation that followed, one which led to dead ends for half a decade. Authorities suspected that Joseph was involved in the attack, especially as their inquiries revealed that he had been leading a double life for years. But he was standing next to Marianne when she was hit, which meant that the police needed to connect him to someone hired to carry out the attack. Finally, testimony from a surprise witness allowed them to do just that, and justice was served.
DRIVEN TO KILL includes dramatic interviews with Marianne, the informant whose testimony broke open the case, and several of the investigators involved.
