On the night of January 8, 1993, seven helpless employees of a Brown's Chicken & Pasta restaurant in Illinois were herded into coolers and systematically assassinated with a .38-caliber revolver.
After carefully erasing all the evidence, two assailants fled with $1,800 in cash. The savagery of the crime stunned and haunted the quiet town of Palatine. Embroiled in notoriety and controversy, multiple lawsuits, false suspects, and dead-end leads, the slayings would go unsolved for nearly a decade. But the "perfect crime" was tripped up by damning evidence the killers never even knew they left behind. In 1999, a breakthrough in the forensic science of DNA testing finally gave authorities the key to unlocking the mystery behind one of the worst mass murders in Illinois history.
