…Caril Ann Fugate: after 65 years, her story still fascinates. Unwilling hostage or willing participant in Charles Starkweather’s kill-spree? Watch THE 12TH VICTIM on Showtime and make up your own mind. Amazing semi-documentary.
…Another horrific tale of the influence of insecure men on trusting females. Caril Ann, I hope U see this, I KNOW you’re innocent! You were a BABY who was taken advantage of & then abused again by the very system that should’ve protected U.
….What a documentary. I hope that she lives to see her get her pardon.
…Just watched a terribly moving and sad documentary about Caril Fugate, called “The Twelfth Victim”. Very moving and I feel incredibly sad.
…She was just a little girl but we know what how conservative politicians and the courts in NE think of girls and women. From refusing to use the word rape in a rape trial to railroading 14 year old Caril.
…Starkweather really took everything from Caril Ann Fugate. Her parents, her sister, her innocence, her freedom — her whole damn life
…I just watched “The 12th Victim” and Nebraska’s refusal to pardon Caril Fugate is shameful and reprehensible.
…The 12th Victim is super interesting!!!! Clearly several levels of toxic masculinity distorted the truth
…Showtime’s THE 12th VICTIM, about Caril Fugate: She was 14 when her Charles Starkweather, went on a murder spree, she’s never been anything but credible and consistent in telling her story, and history STILL remembers her as an accomplice.
The Twelfth Victim—The Innocence of Caril Fugate in the Charles Starkweather Murder Rampage, is the basis for a Showtime documentary that was released in February 2023. In 1957, Charles Starkweather, Lincoln, Nebraska, became one of the nation’s first spree killers. After kidnapping his former girlfriend, Caril Fugate, age 15, he killed 11 people across Nebraska and Wyoming. He was captured, and in 1958, he was found guilty of murder and sentenced to die in Nebraska’s electric chair. He was executed in 1959. Fugate was sentenced to life in prison; however, in 1976, she was paroled after serving 17 years.

Best-selling author, Harry MacLean, (In Broad Daylight—A Murder is Skimore, Missouri), praises, The Twelfth Victim—The Innocence of Caril Fugate in the Starkweather Murder Ramage.
The Twelfth Victim is a much-needed addition to the Starkweather literature. Authors Berry and Batistti develop new information and deliver a searing attack on the justice system that convicted Caril Fugate of first-degree murder. It is a must read for anyone interested in the question of Caril’s guilt or innocence.
Starkweather, 19, was one of the nation’s first spree killers. In 1958, he murdered ten Nebraskans and one man in Wyoming. He kidnapped his ex-girlfriend, Caril Fugate, 15, and took her with him. The authors of this book produce information, showing Caril’s innocence.
Nonetheless, in 1958, she was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. At age 32, she was paroled.
