KILLER KIDS

About the show

What can possibly motivate children and teenagers to kill someone? This documentary series provides some answers -- and, because of the subject's nature, leaves many questions unanswered -- by crafting in-depth profiles of the lives of kids who commit murder. Using information taken from actual police files, each episode deals with a specific type of murder case -- from gang initiations and murders of family members to school killings and occult ceremonies -- exposes various motives, and compares the judicial response to these crimes in Canada, the U.S., England and France.
