Playground Murder Plot
60 min • Society, Crime • 2012
In April 2010 in the small town of Enchanted Hills, Indiana, 12-year-old Paul Gingerich helped his friend, 15-year-old Colt Lundy, shoot and kill Colt’s stepfather. The story both gripped and baffled America.
These two middle-class boys without any prior criminal records plotted the crime in the local playground. They then shot Colt’s stepfather multiple times using his own gun and fled the scene in his car.
They were picked up by police 200 miles from the crime scene and, to date, there is no known motive for the crime. Despite their ages, both Paul and Colt were tried and sentenced as adults and are each serving 30 years.
With unprecedented access to both boys, their families and the ongoing court case, this compelling film offers an extraordinary insight into this chilling crime.
