Unspeakable Crime: The Killing of Jessica Chambers (Oxygen)

A deep dive into the horrific December 2014 murder of Jessica Chambers, the Mississippi teen who was doused with gasoline and set on fire. Inspired by the reporting of BuzzFeed News’ Investigative Reporter, Katie J.M. Baker, and directed by Emmy Award®-winning and Academy Award®-nominated Joe Berlinger (BROTHER’S KEEPER, PARADISE LOST TRILOGY), the five-part series explores the murder of 19-year-old Chambers and takes an inside look into the trial of Quinton Tellis, a local black man accused of the crime. With tensions high, a small Mississippi town seeks the truth while facing a growing racial divide over guilt or innocence.
