In 1973, a massive manhunt in New York's Adirondack Mountains ended when police captured a man named Robert Garrow. And thatís when this story really gets started. This episode we consider a string of barbaric crimes by a hated man, and the attorney who, when called to defend him, also wound up defending a core principle of our legal system.
