S10E4: Thomas Cogdell
While eating a hamburger, this kid spontaneously confesses to killing his sister?
Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin take us to Camden, Arkansas, where a twelve-year-old boy is left to fend for himself against police officers who suspect him of murder. The interrogation tape is bad enough – but the worst parts happened off camera. This is the story of Thomas Cogdell.
