In late 2010, a middle-aged man moved into his daughter's college dorm and created what has all the hallmarks of a cult. Over the decade that followed, he extorted millions of dollars from vulnerable young adults through violence, psychological torture, and forced sex work. Actress and Director Elisabeth Rohm narrates Law&Crime's 6-part investigative series, which draws from thousands of pages of transcripts, exhibits, audio files, and video recordings from a federal trial and explores the actions and motives of Larry Ray. This is Law&Crime’s Devil in the Dorm.

I kept getting bored

Terrible

Can y’all get Ashley flowers to narrate and tell this story. The narrator’s voice is awful, makes the story really hard to get through episodes. The person that voices Claudia sounds so scripted, fake and not a good reenactment. They’ll play real audio evidence but won’t clarify what was said. The ads occur suddenly and without notice and will blare through your audio. It’s a good story, but someone like Ashley flowers or Delia Diambra need to tell it. Don’t bother with this one. Just google and read about it
