Is Netflix's Why Did You Kill Me a true story?

Why Did You Kill Me? IS based on a true story and will send a shiver down your spine.

It tells the tale of 24-year-old Crystal Theobald's brutal murder as the result of a 2006 drive-by gang shooting in California.

Theobald's mother, Belinda Lane, then teamed up with her niece to catch her killer.

They created multiple fake Myspace accounts to find the people responsible for her daughter's death.

Who was Crystal Theobald?

Crystal Theobald was a 24-year-old mother of two, killed in February 2006.

Despite the fact that her death was a tragic consequence of gang violence, Theobald herself was not actually in any kind of gang.

She left behind two daughters and her boyfriend, who was also wounded in the attack.

It remains unclear whether the murder was a case of mistaken identity, a possibility given the confusion surrounding a notorious gang unloading on what were innocent civilians with no ties to other gangs or organised crime.

Tragically, Theobald’s mother Belinda was in a car directly behind the one her daughter was in, and witnessed the horrors unfold.

Belinda sparked a one-woman mission to track down every single culprit, even using information sourced from the now defunct social media platform MySpace.

What will happen on Why Did You Kill Me?

The synopsis reads: "After her daughter is killed, a mother uses the social networking site MySpace to investigate the people she believes are responsible.

"This results in reverberations for multiple families."

In the trailer (which you can watch above) we see the lengths mum Belinda goes to, to find her daughter's killer.

When can I watch Why Did You Kill Me?

Why Did You kill me? will drop on Netflix on April 14, 2021.

You can stream the film from 8am on that day.

Netflix is filled with true crime documentaries including The Night Stalker and Making A Murderer.
