Robert Tulloch and Jim Parker were like a modern day Leopold and Loeb. The two teenagers believed they were higher beings who could commit murder with impunity. And like their 19th century counterparts, they got caught. Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly discuss this ghastly murder that took the lives to two beloved Dartmouth professors in 2001. This episode's PSA: If you think you're a superior being, you're not.
Theme music: Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands.
