    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Chuck Stuart case. In 1989, Chuck Stuart and his pregnant wife Carol were both shot. Carol Stuart died after her son, Christopher Stewart, was delivered two months early by caesarean section. The infant suffered seizures due to oxygen deprivation and died 17 days later after his father authorized discontinuing life support. The police suspected Willie Bennett (which led to inflamed racial hatried in Boston), but the case fell apart when Charles committed suicide less than three months after the murder on January 4, 1990 by jumping from the Tobin Bridge. His younger, Matthew, brother was able to clear Bennett by making a confession of his own that identified Charles Stuart as the killer.
