Brown's Chicken Massacre (part 1 of 2)


On January 8. 1993, the owners of a Brown’s Chicken restaurant in Palatine, Illinois and five of their employees were gunned down shortly after close. Though DNA and palm prints were left at the scene, the case grew cold. Then, nearly nine years after the massacre, two women came forward to point the finger at two men. Both men confessed but now claim they’re innocent.
