Dick and Perry murdered The Clutter family of 4, when their only intention was to rob them. They ran and have been caught and have been sentenced to death. This podcast comes to you from death row, just 2 weeks before their execution. It is suspected that Dick and Perry both had mental disorders leading to to their crimes, but this information was disregarded in their case, due to the fact that they both displayed knowledge of their illicit actions.
