In 1986, the body of affluent, beautiful, 18-year-old Jennifer Levin was found dead in Central Park. Her killer: Robert Chambers, a tall, handsome prep from the Upper East Side. 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.
