He claimed she attempted to rape him and her death was an accident. Join host Amanda Knox as she deconstructs the stories behind the victim-blaming, privilege and media sensationalism that surrounded this murder and trial, as seen in the SundanceTV docu-series The Preppy Murder: Death in Central Park.
