NOVA: Mind of a Rampage Killer
Wed., 2/20/13 - 9pm on CET
As the nation tries to understand the tragic events at Newtown, NOVA separates the fact from fiction, investigating new theories that the most destructive rampage killers are driven most of all, not by the urge to kill, but the wish to die.
Path to Violence
