Plot Synopsis

As told by the those who lived with people who became killers, EVIL LIVES HERE use first-person interviews and never-before-told accounts of the years and critical moments leading up to these vicious acts, showcasing the devastating and often undiscussed consequences on the people who have nurtured, loved and raised a murderer.
