‘Evil Genius’ documentary raises questions about robbery gone wrong

We’re sharing with you some of the best things to stream on TV every week, courtesy of The Kim Komando Show. From Hulu to Netflix to Amazon Prime and beyond, we’ll find the best things and share them.

This week’s “What I Streamed And Really Liked” pick, available on Netflix, is the documentary “Evil Genius: The True Story of America’s Most Diabolical Bank Heist.”

In August 2003, an attempted bank robbery in Erie, Pennsylvania, made news headlines across America when the robbery-gone-wrong turned into a public murder.

The attempted robber was a pizza delivery driver who had a bomb locked around his neck. Known as the “pizza bomber” case, a manhunt ensued to find out who was responsible for the crime. Authorities eventually arrested Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong for the delivery man’s death.

She was later convicted and sentenced to life in prison, but this four-part Netflix original documentary series sets out to prove that there’s more to the conspiracy and murder than what was previously thought.

“Evil Genius” is available to stream for free at Netflix.
