The Fugitive had movie audiences at the edge of their seats, cheering for a doctor wrongly convicted of murdering his wife. But most people do not know that the film was based on a real case.
In July of 1954, Marilyn Sheppard was found murdered in her home in a quiet Ohio suburb. Marilyn's husband, a prominent doctor, was charged with murder, convicted and sentenced to life in prison. 12 years later the Supreme Court declared the trial a media "carnival" and Dr. Sam Sheppard was acquitted. His son has devoted much of his life to investigating the crime that tore his life apart. Now, thanks to DNA testing, he believes he has found the person responsible.
AMERICAN JUSTICE® traces his steps and reveals who the real killer might be. It's the true story behind one of the most popular movies in years.
