Episode 142 - Johann “Jack” Unterweger: The Poet of Death

In Austria in 1974, Johann Unterweger was sentenced to life for the murder of a young woman. From behind bars he was soon writing beautiful poetry and painting a heartbreaking image of a man who had endured a hard childhood, made some mistakes - but who was now the poster boy for rehabilitation. 

Johann went in to prison an illiterate murderer, and with the help of his many elite supporters, he came out early - as a bestselling author. But everything wasn’t as it seemed, and this is the story of a serial killer who tricked not only his many victims, but also an entire nation.
