    Synopsis


    Investigative Reports: Untying the Strait Jacket
    This documentary, part of the Investigative Reports series from the A&E cable network, uncovers the facts and fictions of the criminally insane. Narrated by Investigative Reports host and producer Bill Kurtis, this episode takes a look into some of the largest maximum-security mental facilities in the country with never-before-seen footage. Investigative Reports features interviews with some of the doctors and patients of these hospitals, all of whom tell their personal stories of working with the mentally ill. Some specific cases are followed, including the case of a man who killed his parents with a shotgun because he believed a device in the attic was controlling his thoughts. Another man, even after 26 hospitalizations, still believed he was a secret agent for the government. And Hugh Kelly, who was released from a hospital 20 years after committing a crime and ended up marrying a woman who also was acquitted for murder by reason of insanity. ~ Cecilia Cygnar, Rovi
