Part of the documentary series about some of the most notorious murders of the twentieth century. This volume looks at three different types of killings. 'Murder for Profit', looks at the murderous landlady Dorothy Puente, acid bath killer John George Haigh, and the Trinidadian black power killer Michael X. 'Inheritance Killers' looks at the crimes of the Menendez brothers, The White House Farm killings, and the pipe-bomb death of heiress Margaret Benson, for which her adopted son Scott was accused. 'Deadly Kidnappings' looks at bungled kidnapping attempts that ended up with a dead victim, including the Lindbergh baby case, the Black Panther kidnapping, and the kidnapping of Muriel McKay in 1969, whose body was never found.
