In 1997, 17-year-olds friends Aaron Needle and Samuel Sheinbein were looking for someone to kill. They settled on a 19-year-old acquaintance named Freddy Tello Jr. Prosecutors would later claim that this murder was practice for the pair and that their main target was a romantic rival of one of the boys.

Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss the strange and twisted case of Needle and Sheinbein. It's a case that involves a horrific murder and plans for at least one other, all formed in the minds of these two boys. But neither of them would see the inside of a U.S. courtroom, each for different reasons. The flight of one of the boys would set off a firestorm between the United States and Israel over his fate.
