People Are Saying Netflix's New True-Crime Is Better Than 'Making A Murderer'

People Are Saying Netflix's New True-Crime Is Better Than 'Making A Murderer'

Chilling new docuseries The Confession Killer has been branded better than Making A Murderer by viewers since it landed on Netflix on Friday.

Now that's statement.

The five-part true crime show investigates Henry Lee Lucas, who was once deemed to be the most prolific serial killer in history, after he was convicted of murdering his mother in 1960 and two others in 1983.

Following his murder convictions in 1983, he quickly gained worldwide recognition, after confessing to around 600 sickening murders, which brought closure to unsolved cases and grieving families.

Although there was no direct evidence linking him to the crime scenes, he stunned authorities with his ability to sketch victims' portraits while citing brutal details of each attack.

During this time, Lucas was plied with confession interview 'privileges' such as steak dinners, tranquillisers, and milkshakes and given police files to jog his memory.

However, journalists and attorneys found impossibilities in Lucas' timeline, and DNA testing started to contradict his internationally-reported claims.

Subsequently in nearly all cases, there was no direct evidence linking Lucas to the murders.

And following it's release on the streaming service last week, viewers have taken to Twitter in their droves to discuss the shocking series and have claimed it's even better than fellow true crime series Making A Murderer.
