    Natalee Holloway: The Murder that Catapulted the True Crime Genre into the Stratosphere

Phelps goes through the case–including the nauseating bloviation by the likes of Nancy Grace and the rest of the cable TV talking heads–and reveals the conclusion of this high-profile true-crime story that broke the internet and, in many ways, set the standard for what we see and hear today.
