Meeting with a killer (Documentary film : 2001)
1 DVD (45 min.) : sound, color ; 4 3/4 in.
In 1986, a young, pregnant mother was kidnapped, raped and murdered near Tomhall, Texas by two fifteen-year-olds. They were caught and pled guilty. One of the offenders, Gary Brown, is serving a 54-year sentence for this crime. The other offender, the "trigger man," is in the psychiatric ward of the prison. This documentary follows the two-year journey of the victim's family, Linda (victim's mother) and Ami (victim's daughter) White, in setting up a mediation meeting with Gary Brown, through counselor Ellen Halbert of the Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice's Victim Offender Mediation/Dialogue program. The documentary culminates in the actual meeting in the prison's chapel, fifteen years after the crime, and how the victim's family and offender react to each other.
