In May of 2021, the #1 Movie on Netflix was a Must-Watch True-Crime Doc Where the Victim’s Family Tries to Catfish the Killer. The description? A mother pledges to find the people who killed her daughter, and uses MySpace to do so. Why Did You Kill Me? is all about the tireless efforts of Belinda Lane, who stopped at nothing to get justice.
The documentary tells the story of Crystal Theobald and her mother. Crystal was killed by gang members in 2006. After her death, Crystal’s mother used social networking site MySpace to investigate the people she believed were responsible, resulting in reverberations for multiple families.
With 253 million minutes streamed in the first 5 days, it was the #2 most viewed movie that week across all streaming platforms.
