AMERICAN JUSTICE opens the files to take another look at this sensational case that offers a disturbing look at the dark underbelly of wealth and privilege.
On a morning in August 1986 the body of Jennifer Levin young, attractive and rich was discovered in New York's Central Park. Shortly afterwards, police arrested Robert Chambers for the crime. The tabloid press descended on the case in force, drawn to the irresistible mix of sex, violent death, attractive people and privileged youth. It was quickly dubbed the PREPPIE MURDER. Meet people who knew the killer and his victim, and hear stories of the clique that gathered at the Upper East Side hangout called Dorrian's Red Hand. Revisit the unusual trial, where the defense essentially put the victim on trial and the checkered past of the defendant which involved burglaries and a long history of drug use was kept from the jurors. Testimony from police and attorneys highlights the crucial points in the case, and the family of the victim speaks out in a rare interview.
