Tuesday TV: Prosecuting with Prejudice

WhoKilledDocumentarian Liz Garbus’ contribution to HBO’s month of gripping, two part documentaries follows a case in Potsdam, N.Y., involving the strangulation murder of a 12-year-old boy in 2011.

Despite the utter lack of evidence. Unlike most such true crime documentaries, this one unfolds not after the fact, but as they attempt to make a case.
