Netflix viewers demand justice for killer wife who murdered husband in latest true crime doc
| Last updated
Netflix's newest true crime series is causing an absolute stir online, with people demanding the killer be released.
From confessional tapes of the world's most infamous killers to the chilling stories that somehow got lost in the ether until now.
One such story is that of Sally McNeil, whose chilling tale unravels in Killer Sally, which dropped on the platform yesterday (2 November).
The three-part series investigates the murder of national bodybuilding champion Ray McNeil, who was shot to death by his wife Sally McNeil.
The crime took place on Valentine’s Day 1995, with McNeil alleging she was being choked and beaten and shot her husband in self-defence.
The former bodybuilder, who was convicted in March 1996 for second-degree murder and sentenced to 19 years to life in prison, also claimed she was a victim of abuse at the hands of her husband.
She says Ray broke her nose, choked her on multiple occasions and forced her to have sex with him.
Sally's two children also claimed they saw Ray being violent towards their mum.
The documentary series includes footage from the police interrogation interviews from the day after the shooting, making for a completely gripping watch.
And given that the crux of the series focuses on the fact that 'Sally claimed it was self-defence, a split-second decision to save her life,' it's easy to see why people are calling for her release.
People took to Twitter to share their thoughts, with one user saying: "Honestly Netflix needs to change the title of this documentary KILLER SALLY ??? It should of been called ABUSED SALLY."
Others said that they wished Sally had a lawyer present when she told her story: "When you’re innocent, you tell your story expecting people to believe it. They often don’t and turn your story around on you."
While others took issue with Dan Goldstein, the prosecutor, for how he handled the case and portrayal of Sally as the aggressor, with one person saying: "The prosecutor Dan Goldstein is a scumbag. I personally, have never been involved in domestic violence or a domestic abuse situation. But I know for a fact, that Sally McNeil's children are not lying. No Justice #KillerSally #Netflix."
Another added: "#killersally Dan Goldstein should be ashamed of himself talking all that crap about her I cannot believe that injustice … unbelievable."
