Priscilla Gustafson was a nursery school teacher with two children, Abigail and William. On the night of December 1, 1987, Daniel LaPlante broke into her home, raped and murdered Priscilla, then proceeded to drown both of her children. Daniel was found hiding 2 days later and was convicted of 3 consecutive life sentences. Savannah explores Daniel's abusive childhood and status as an outcast all of his life, as well as the details of the triple homicide and Daniel's attempt to gain parole despite showing no remorse for his crimes.
