    On Independence Day, 1990, Stacey Lannert murdered her own father, shooting him twice. Then she staged the crime scene. As she was only 18 years old at the time and had roped in two co-conspirators, it is hardly surprising her story soon collapse. One of the conspirators became involved after the fact; the other was her own younger sister. How does anyone get out of that one? Any woman, any female, can cry rape, and that is what Stacey did. Against her own father.

    This documentary lays out the facts presented by the prosecution and also gives Stacey space to spew her lies over her silent victim.

    The truth appears to be that Tom Lannert was a good husband and proud father of two daughters; her knight in shining armour, his ex-wife said. He appears to have gone downhill after the death of his own father, becoming a lush, and on occasion violent, including to his youngest daughter. Stacey was a difficult teen, something that is hardly unusual; she was once sent to a therapist who thought she might have been sexually molested. Don't they all! When asked point blank about this, Stacey denied it. After her arrest though and especially after her conviction, she remembered and "disclosed" (ie fabricated) more and more until eventually even her sister backed her up. In spite of her sentence of life without parole, Lannert served only eighteen years thanks to enormous misguided public pressure and a soft Governor. Today, her slanders are treated as gospel by the gullibles, including Oprah Winfrey and Nancy Grace, but at least she never got her hands on her father's estate for which she is disbarred under common law; a judge ordered that be donated to charity.
