Season 1, Episode 9

Anguish in Austin

A city unlike any other in the state of Texas, Austin is a liberal melting pot of creativity, live music and quirky weirdness. But it is still Texas - where everything is big - and Austin holds its own with big drama and over-the-top characters. Nothing epitomizes this more than the case of Celeste Beard. For the first time ever, Marcus sits down with a convicted murderess to hear her side of a tale intertwined with sex, money, murder and manipulation. No other crime impacted the city of Austin - and the nation as a whole - as the 1966 University of Texas tower sniper. Marcus hits the gun range and has his brain scanned to try to get a glimpse into the mind and actions of Charles Whitman. Marcus explores how fate can mean the difference between life and death. But Austin doesn't dwell on the past. This is a town with a zest for life, where weirdness isn't just accepted, it's encouraged.
