Movie Inspired Nathaniel White's 1st Middletown, NY Murder

According to reports, White committed his first murder after watching a specific scene in the film RoboCop2 which was released in 1990. White is reported as saying:

 "The first girl I killed was from a 'RoboCop' movie... I seen him cut somebody's throat then take the knife and slit down the chest to the stomach and left the body in a certain position. With the first person I killed I did exactly what I saw in the movie."

White's killing spree has been the subject of several television shows and deep dives. In the first season of Oxygen Networks Twisted Killers they spotlight the terrifying 16-month killing spree. Take a look at the highlights from the episode below:
