The Confession Tapes

Two young men are tricked into confessing to a triple murder using a covert investigation procedure called the "Mr. Big technique," which is unlawful in the United States.

Police tell a grieving man lie after lie about evidence implicating him in his girlfriend's death, until he is convinced of his own guilt and willingly confesses not once, not twice, but three times.

Three teenagers, after hours of intense and abusive questioning by police, confess to and implicate four others in a brutal rape and murder.

All of these defendants were convicted of serious, violent crimes on little evidence besides their confessions. All proclaimed their innocence. These are just some of the gut-wrenching cases covered in The Confession Tapes, Netflix's new docuseries which seeks to answer the question, "Why would someone confess to a crime they didn't commit?" Prepare yourself for a rage-inducing binge.
