I find the storytelling somewhat hard to follow with the way the narrator jumps around. e.g. He's interviewing a mother in current times then suddenly is talking about when the police were digging up bodies.

Description

In the 80s and 90s, a serial killer, pedophile, and kidnapper, Marc Dutroux, terrorized the country of Belgium. His unspeakable crimes and the incompetence or unwillingness of law enforcement agencies to stop him brought the entire country of Belgium to the brink of revolution. With hundreds of thousands taking to the streets in protest. Le Monstre will tell the story of these crimes and their aftermath, known as the Dutroux Affair, in an attempt to address unanswered questions, and to hopefully bring closure to one of the darkest chapters in Belgium’s history.

Arrested for his role in the kidnapping of Sabine Dardenne and Laëtitia Delhez, Marc Dutroux again cracks and admits to involvement in the kidnappings of Julie & Melissa. Carine Russo talks about the fourteen months of "scandalous silence" surrounding her daughter's disappearance.

The Perfect Psychopath [5]

Marc Dutroux was a child of the 60's. Not the flowery 60's of peace and love, but a much darker existence in the grimy working class region of Charleroi. His violent childhood was a cycle of abuse and perversion, creating a monster that would abduct young women and girls in the mid 80's, a foretelling of his crimes to come.
