Do you know anyone who has killed another person?
inspired by some of the answers here.
Curious if anyone has had a chance to talk to someone who has killed another person in the past. Perhaps you have a relationship with him/her (parent, spouse, child, friend, etc)
Lots of stray questions come to mind about their characters and about their stories beyond what you hear on tv or in courts. Please answer any, all, or other questions as you see fit:
What do they have to say about why they did it?
What do they think about murder and/or killing in general now?
Are they remorseful? Do they feel they had no choice?
What stray insights have they gleamed from their perspective? (beyond avoiding soap clumsiness, i mean)
Have you learned anything from knowing these people in their position?
