Vigilantes. They’re our heroes, our dark reflection, our cultural obsession. This season, Amanda Knox explores multiple stories of vigilante justice, starting with the still-unsolved murder of a small town’s tormentor — the story at the heart of the SundanceTV docu-series No One Saw a Thing. From murderous gang hunters and vengeful fathers to real-life avengers and internet cat-fishers, join Knox as she examines justice outside of the law.

In the '70s and '80s, Tony and Susan Alamo promised personal salvation to those who joined their ministry, The Alamo Christian Foundation. Wielding the fear of damnation, they grew rapidly but soon began to face allegations of using cult-like tactics and abuse to control and exploit their followers. This season on The Truth About True Crime, former members share their stories as host Amanda Knox uncovers the methods the Alamos used to capture people, the mental and physical maltreatment Tony and Susan inflicted on their followers and the challenges the filmmakers faced in telling this story in SundanceTV's docu-series Ministry of Evil: The Twisted Cult of Tony Alamo.
