Einhorn states, “This is a powerful series that recounts the conviction of Pablo Ibar and his defense team arguing his innocence years later, keeping him away from the death penalty. Viewers get to watch all the chilling details from the murders up to and through his Supreme Court trial. Fans of true-crime documentaries will find this program fascinating.
In 1994, in South Florida, Pablo Ibar was arrested on a charge of triple homicide. The Miramar murders, as they came to be known, were the first in U.S. history to be captured in their entirety on a home security camera system resulting in unprecedented media coverage. However, the low-grade technology of the time made it impossible to clearly identify the two perpetrators who are seen executing the victims in cold blood. When the police arrest Pablo Ibar they are certain they have captured the killer.
