Convicted Cleveland serial killer Anthony Sowell was back in court today to appeal his 2011 death sentence for the murders of 11 women over a three-year period.

A new documentary about those crimes, called “Unseen”, had its debut at the Cleveland International Film Festival, this past weekend. It tells the stories of Sowell’s victims.

From the Here & Now Contributors Network, David C. Barnett of WCPN takes a closer look at the lives of a vulnerable population.
