In this bonus episode we travel to England where we delve into the murder of a mother at the hands of her own son.
This is not just a crime of anger, nor of greed, for this young boy planned this murder for a long time after watching a few episodes of the British soap opera, Coronation Street in which there was a story line of a man that murders someone with a hammer, and to cover up the crime they burn down the building in which the murder occurred. For this, the crime is often referred to as the Coronation Street Killer.
