They were golden boys who killed with sudden savagery. The trial revealed a dark drama too evil to believe.
Handsome, rich, bronzed champion athletes, Erik and Lyle Menendez were the stunning symbols of the California dream. The sons of a high-powered Hollywood executive and his beautiful wife, they lived in a pampered world of Beverly Hills mansions, swimming pools, and private tennis coaches.
But the dream became a nightmare when police found the butchered bodies of the boys' parents, Jose and Kitty, in the family room of their five-million dollar mansion. Only days after the couple was laid to rest, the brothers began an appalling spending spree, buying Rolex watches, designer clothes and a new Porsche. Seven months later, all of Hollywood was stunned when the 18- and 21-year-old brothers were arrested for the horrendous killings.
In wrenching testimony, Lyle and Erik accused their father of sexually brutalizing then since they were children - claiming his sadistic acts of perversion and cruel violence drove them to their unspeakable crime.
Best-selling author Don Davis takes you inside one of the most riveting cases in California's history, laying to bare the shattering secrets of a tormented family.
