How to Get Away With Murder: The Real-Life Story of David Booth and His Life on the Dark Side of Hollywood

A manhunt is underway for a serial killer who murdered at least 12 people, including two children, in the Los Angeles area in the early 1980s. 

David Booth, better known as “J.J.”

Booth, was convicted in 1994 for the murders, but his conviction was overturned when a DNA match was discovered. 

Now, in this exclusive feature from Entertainment Weekly, Booth tells the story of his life and his life on the run. 

He spent a lot of time in prison and spent time in the hospital after his release, he says.

Booth says he did the right thing, and he regrets it now. 

“I have been very fortunate to be able to be a free man,” Booth says.

“I would like to thank my family and friends for giving me a chance to be who I am.”
