Mind Over Murder
After the 1985 rape and murder of grandmother Helen Wilson, investigators obtained confessions from six people who said they were there when it happened. But even after they were exonerated decades later, family members and cops don’t believe the so-called Beatrice Six would implicate themselves in a crime they didn’t commit. Meantime, a community theater in the small Nebraska town attempts to confront the crime’s impacts by staging a play based on transcripts of the suspects’ controversial interrogations.
The HBO Original documentary series “Mind Over Murder” explores the psychologically complex story of the six people convicted for the murder, the small town cop who drew out their confessions, the psychologist who planted their fake memories, and the town divided on the legacy of what happened.
