Tune into HBO to watch an intensely personal journey as American Crew founder, David Raccuglia, investigates whether Chester Weger is responsible for the brutal murders of three women at Starved Rock State Park some 60 years ago.
HBO documentary series, THE MURDERS AT STARVED ROCK, explores the 1960 brutal murders of three women at Starved Rock State Park in LaSalle, Illinois, and the decades of questions and doubts left in their wake. Produced by American Barber Films and Mark Wahlberg’s Unrealistic Ideas, The Murders at Starved Rock explores this 60-year-old murder mystery. The convicted killer, Chester Weger, maintains his innocence after 60 years in prison and seeks exoneration. Haunted by the murders in his hometown, David Raccuglia has spent the last 15 years delving into the case files, convinced that the whole truth has yet to be uncovered.
What is truly compelling is the fact that David’s family has a personal connection to this case.
David said: “As a kid, Chester Weger was my boogey man, I used to lay in bed terrified that he was going to kill me, because my father was the prosecutor who put Chester in prison for life for his crimes.”
David is on a quest to find out whether there is evidence to prove that Chester is innocent and if there is, he wants to expose it to the world, as this has left his hometown divided for 60 years.
