When Jennifer Levin is found murdered in Central Park in 1986, one of her private school friends is arrested for the crime. This catalyzes bitter debates about sex, privilege, legal ethics, parental responsibility, socioeconomics, victim’s rights, and so much more. Before there was the OJ Simpson trial, there was the Preppy Murder.
