Sir Anthony Hopkins’ chilling cannibal in The Silence of the Lambs spawned a Hollywood horror franchise. But the macabre gentleman-killer also inspired 14-year-old Florida boy, Michael Hernandez, to develop a dark obsession with serial killers like Lecter. In an attempt to mirror the cold-blooded monster, Hernandez embarks on his very own killing spree. He lures classmates Jamie Gough and Andre Martin into the bathroom of their school. What happened next was unspeakable and only Andre lived to tell what copycat killer Michael Hernandez did.
