What’s The Storyline
She has done extensive research on the serial murderer and the mentality which led him to commit such a heinous act against society. Any crime which shakes the conscience of a fellow human being can’t be categorized as the crime itself, and it is regarded as the crime against society in general.
Her death meant an end to the book, but her husband and comedian Patton Oswalt did something truly incredible to complete the book, of which the last two chapters weren’t written due to her death. He took help from crime writer Billy Jensen and Paul Haynes to complete the book for her, and they did an exemplary work by completing the book with utmost clarity. As far as the series is concerned, one shouldn’t miss on the work of Michelle McNamara, who did extensive research, and it was reflected in the series too.
The police reports, coupled with interviews, set an intriguing premise for the series. The series begins with the making of a monster who had no regard for humans or, for that matter, anything concerning humanity. The killer had a terrible pattern for murders, and after labeled as East Area Rapist, he further went to the coast to commit even more heinous crimes.
His insane liking for killing and rape has made him into a monster who hasn’t had an iota of humanity left inside him. He commits 50 rapes and ten murders. This is something that barely makes him qualified to be called human. The series has done exemplary work by exploring the author’s state of mind, which makes it a great documentary series. Her relationship with Oswalt has been showing in the series, and it is a depiction of mental stress she has to undergo while chasing these cases.
