Confront, rage, heal, and continue with life. This is the foundation of the Restorative Justice approach and the heart of this special program from A&E. Like nothing on television, CONFRONTATION chronicles the heartache, the anger and the healing enabled by bringing together those most effected by violent crimes: the victims, their families and the perpetrators.
In this emotional hour, you will follow the stories of two remarkable women coming to terms with tragedy by meeting the men who killed their loved ones.
18 years ago, while Jennifer Eaton-Bertagnolli's slept peacefully, her father was brutally stabbed to death in the adjacent bedroom. After nearly two decades struggling to come to terms with this tragedy, Jennifer finally has a chance to meet the man who ended her father's - and in many ways, her own - life so many years ago. Hear Jennifer recount the terrible crime and its after-effects, and then join her as she confronts the killer. Bear witness as she asks the question that has haunted her for all these years: would she have been killed, too, had she awakened that night?
Then join Shelly Maddox in her own quest for understanding and peace. Before Shelly even knew how deeply her beloved son Corey was involved in drugs, she lost him at the hands of Mark Huyber. Now six years have passed and Shelly is going to face Huyber. She has so many questions about who her son was, and his killer is the only one who can answer them.
These tales of loss and discovery, of grief and consolation, are moving testaments to our capacity for recovery. Experience the rawest of emotions in CONFRONTATION.
