In the clip below, Robert Bianchi makes a great point. Why didn’t Michael Rourke try harder to find out why Watts did what he did? Rourke had him by the balls, so why not get him to make a full accurate confession?
Bianchi calls Rourke’s attitude to Watts’ motive “incurious”. I couldn’t agree more, and besides the murders themselves, that’s the greatest travesty of this case. People will be asking why for years to come, none more so than the family of the victims.
