I had just moved to North Carolina before Kathleen Peterson died, and began working within the Durham government a few months later. I was involved with at risk youth and gangs, so was familiar with Durham police and its justice system. What a "hot mess" (as they say in the South) of incompetent, shady, slackers! Peterson got railroaded and should have sued the justice system for his conviction and time served. This series was very well done, had incredible access to the people involved in the case, and showed the many fascinating characters involved. From the enigmatic Peterson, to his bitter sister-in-law, to the Cruella DeVille prosecutor Freda Black, and many others, you really saw the difficulty of each of their situations. Highly recommended.
