One man's lie unhinges a historic community in City Confidential: Boston -- Betrayal in Beantown. When Charles Stuart called police one October night in 1986 to say he and his pregnant wife had been shot, all available investigators were called out. They began searching for the main suspect whom Stuart had only described as a black man. The resulting arrests were an exercise in racial profiling with random people being targeted in the Mission Hills area. The wife and unborn child died of their injuries while Charles recovered from a wound to his rear. Police later discovered the gunshot was self-inflicted and his wife had been the only true target. But, it was too late for the insulted African-American communities. A&E explores the murder and accusation that divided the birthplace of freedom.moreless
