The John List Story.
Robert Blake and Beverly D'Angelo.
His crime went unsolved for almost 18 years. The true story of John List, a shocking multiple murderer, starts with him as a devoted husband and good father, who more than anything else was an obsessive Christian attending church twice a week But behind the appearance of order and calm, an abusive childhood and years of tyrannical religious training at his mothers hands had created a disturbed and dangerous man.
List's rigid view of life prevented him from coping with a complex world and the pressures of marriage and family. He lost his job. He depleted his mother's savings. He sank further and further into anger and depression. Finally, unemployed and almost penniless, something in List snapped. Believing that suicide would ensure him an eternity in hell, he secured his family's place in heaven the only he could. On a cold winter morning he murdered his family one by one. He wrote a confession and several letters to family members and his local minister. He ate lunch, drove to the airport and disappeared without a trace.
How could any man commit such a crime? And how will he finally be brought to justice? This true story of the 18 year manhunt is a gripping thriller, and a powerful portrait of a desperate man driven to the brink of insanity.
