Violent Minds: Killers on Tape

Violent Minds: Killers on Tape

This true crime series explores the captivating inmate tapes of psychiatrist Dr. Al Carlisle that were previously thought to be lost to history.

Recording his conversations with some of America's most heinous killers, these tapes helped him discover what drives a seemingly normal person to become obsessed with murder, exhibit violent tendencies and psychopathic behaviour.

Before criminal profiling and the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit existed, Dr. Carlisle dared to reach into the minds of the most dangerous killers in the world.

Raised as a devout Mormon, Dr. Carlisle firmly believed that everyone is born good and wondered how does one become a monster?

He believed if we can understand how one becomes violent, we might be able to stop killers before they claim their first victim.

Dr. Carlisle recorded most of his conversations with killers as he searched for an answer.

After Carlisle's death in 2018, his family discovered over 650 hours of inmate tapes which forensic experts thought were just rumoured to exist.

The series centres on various inmates, many of whom were imprisoned in the Utah state prison during the 1970s and '80s.

Additional killers profiled in the series include the HiFi Killers, Arthur Gary Bishop and Manny Cortez.

In the series premiere, "Ted Bundy: Part 1": The first of two back-to-back episodes focused on Dr. Carlisle's conversations with Ted Bundy after he was arrested and charged for aggravated kidnapping in Utah in 1975.

Dr. Carlisle met Bundy before he would become known as one of the world's most notorious serial killers.

Bundy's duplicitousness made everyone believe he was an upstanding citizen.

Tasked by the judge to evaluate his potential for evil to help determine an appropriate sentencing, Dr. Carlisle went the extra mile to develop a comprehensive portrait of Bundy by speaking and recording his conversations with his mother, friends, girlfriend and exes.

This all culminated to a chilling and unforgettable discovery.
