Viewers are demanding justice for a killer after a new Netflix true crime series dropped on the platform.
If you've not checked it out yet, watch the trailer for Killer Sally here:
Well, spooky season might be well and truly over but the streaming giant's latest spine-tingling addition has people taking to Twitter to urge for a killer's release.
Yep, that's right - the three-part series Killer Sally, dropped on the platform yesterday (2 November) and is one of the most heart-wrenching stories we've seen.
The docu-series investigates the murder of national bodybuilding champion Ray McNeil, who was shot to death by his wife Sally McNeil.
The crime took place on Valentine’s Day 1995, with Sally alleging she was being choked and beaten; she added that she shot her husband in self-defence.
The former bodybuilder, who was convicted in March 1996 for second-degree murder and sentenced to 19 years to life in prison, also claimed she was a victim of abuse at the hands of her husband.
She says Ray broke her nose, choked her on multiple occasions, and forced her to have sex with him.
Sally's two children also claimed they saw Ray being violent towards their mum.
These revelations, coupled with footage from the police interrogation the day after the crime, make it hard to look away from your screen.
But, people weren't happy after finishing the series, wondering why Sally was still in prison and urging for her release.
People quickly took to Twitter to say that justice hadn't been served: "The woman has been abused her entire life and is sitting to rot in jail?!?!?!?! Only in America #killerSally."
Another outraged viewer wrote: "Sally supported her family while her worthless husband did nothing...no job, drugged up steroids, abusive. He blinded a man at the bar using his thumbs. It was on file he had abused his wife and broke her nose. Wtf."
While a third added: "Sally McNeil in that questioning room with her kids is heartbreaking. I’m sat here crying. Where is the justice?!?"
One other added: "I really don’t understand why women get put in jail for killing their abuser after getting beat for years, kids getting beat everyone knows it and they're still put in jail??"
