MONSTERS: The Lyle and Erik Menendez Story Plot
In the second season of MONSTERS: The Lyle and Erik Menendez Story we’ll get to learn more about the notorious Menéndez brothers. It was a shocking event when José and Kitty Menéndez were murdered by their sons Lyle and Erik at their Beverly Hills mansion in 1989, despite their first attempt of misleading national security agents regarding their parents’ death by stating they went out for a movie and on return found them dead.
Since their dad was potentially linked to nearby criminal organizations, the brothers weren’t considered suspects right off the bat. However, it was not until the family became worried about their extravagant expenses that suspicions were aroused. This case brings to light both questionable police work and involvement of interested parties in influencing the direction of an investigation, while this new season pledges a detailed examination of both the crimes and their multifaceted motives.
The Menéndez brothers successfully evaded investigators’ attempts at obtaining a confession via wiretap, only being arrested after an unforeseen occurrence during March of 1990. Despite not admitting anything to a wired-up friend, Erik admitted everything openly in front of his counsellor.However later on, the same therapist violated doctor-patient confidentiality by revealing this information to Erik’s previous romantic partner. Upon going to law enforcement officials thereafter, it led to Lyle Mendendez’s detainment. Three days elapsed and then Erik surrendered
Controversy marked these trials as questions were raised about the validity of some pieces of evidence, resulting in separate trials that concluded without a unanimous decision from the jurors and requiring new hearings.According to prosecutors who claimed that only profit was behind it all, in court where family members attested to experiencing both physical and sexual abuse from their own parents during discussions around murder investigations, the enjoyment derived by the brothers from using up all of their inheritance money post-parents’ death was evident – however it’s not clear if what they claimed was really true. Through explorations of this complicated trial,the show hopes to clarify things
