People Are Raving About New Netflix True Crime Documentary On Death Row Killers

Netflix has released a new true crime documentary series called I Am A Killer, which focuses on the lives of murderers on death row.

The series has ten episodes, each of which explores the horrific crimes committed by various killers. The episodes go into the story of each of the people behind the often gruesome acts.
Netflix describe the show as follows: "Death row inmates convicted of capital murder give a firsthand account of their crimes in this documentary series."

The series was available to stream in the UK on Netflix from 3 August (it was released in the US last year), and naturally the internet has gone mad for an insight into the thoughts and consequences of the actions of the criminals.

All ten episodes are available now, and include the stories of various famous and not so well known killers. 

One episode looks at the story of Wayne Doty. The convicted murderer admits his guilt, but requests that his execution be carried out by electric chair, a method no longer used in Florida. 

His reasons are that he doesn't like needles, and as a former welder he believes it is a more humane way to die. A loophole in the law in Florida means that his wish may be granted.

Another episode sees Miguel Angel Martinez sentenced for a triple murder linked by police to Satanism. He becomes the youngest person ever on death row in Texas.

Definitely worth a watch, but maybe not one to binge when you're in the house alone.

I Am A Killer can be streamed on Netflix now.
