See shocking footage of the seedy, hedonistic prison life of Richard Speck, whose gruesome killing spree made him a national figure of evil.
On the night of July 13, 1966, eight nurses were savagely murdered in their Chicago townhouse. The killer, Richard Speck, eventually became America's symbol of evil.
For all his brutality, Speck was careless, and after hearing the chilling testimony of a survivor, the jury took only 45 minutes to convict him. He was sentenced to death, but the execution was never carried out. Speck settled in to a seedy prison life filled with drugs, sex and money. See shocking footage of his life behind bars uncovered by INVESTIGATIVE REPORTS™. Watch as he flashes rolls of money, jokes with his sex partner, and apparently snorts cocaine on this secret video recorded in the maximum security prison. And for the first time ever, Speck admits to the crime and recounts the horrific details.
Can life behind bars sufficiently replace the death penalty as just punishment for wanton murder? Explore this burning issue with THE SECRET TAPES OF RICHARD SPECK.
