Liverpool, 1993: Two 10-year-old boys kidnap and savagely murder 2-year-old James Bulger. What would compel such young children to commit such a vicious act on a little kid? The investigation and trial produced overwhelming evidence against the two young killers, who spent the rest of their childhood in prison. Now as adults, they have mostly vanished from the public eye. Due to a bizarre British law, it is a federal crime to look for them. There is no way to know if or when they will kill again. In this episode: Prof. Michael Drane and Jeremy Enfinger to explore this perplexing case.
