A murderous get-rich-quick scheme ends with a family dead and their son in jail for life.
Dana Ewell was a cocky, rich kid obsessed with money. And he had a scheme to get a lot of it quickly. While he was eating Easter dinner at the home of an FBI agent, a gunman broke into the Ewell home, 200 miles away, and killed Dana's mother, father and sister.
With his family dead, Dana stood to inherit millions, and he quickly became the prime suspect despite his seemingly airtight alibi. AMERICAN JUSTICE® chronicles the three-year investigation into the Ewell murders with the help of detectives from the Fresno County Sheriff's department, who reveal how they finally broke open the case against Dana. Attorneys from both sides offer insider's views of the four-month trial that followed, and family friends and confidantes reflect on what drove Dana and his accomplice to murder.
A MILLION REASONS TO KILL is a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at a well-planned, well-executed crime and how the people responsible were brought to justice.
