Columbine wasn't about jocks, goths or Trench Coat Mafia. Award-winning author debunks myths & unravels the motives of Columbine killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.

This book was cited as "definitive" by most major critics, including Newsweek, GQ, The Daily Beast, Philadelphia Inquirer, New York Post and most importantly, Columbia Journalism Review.

Dave got rare access to film much of this inside the Columbine cafeteria, so you can see exactly where and how the attack played out.

We also used surveillance footage of the killers in the cafeteria during the attack, and the videos Eric and Dylan made, including Hitmen For Hire. You will get a sense of what drove the killers to perpetrate the Columbine shooting and what they wrought

Columbine should not be a mystery. A team of experts brought in by the FBI cracked the case years ago. This video and book explains how and why.
