Who is in the perfect position to commit THE PERFECT MURDER? Someone in a position to manipulate evidence and the law. In the world of TV entertainment, a great example of this kind of criminal might be “DEXTER,” the psychopathic forensics guy who conducts his own form of vigilante justice on real bad guys who would otherwise roam free.
But what if a whistleblower like Edward Snowden turned up with a bullet in his head? Some folks would cheer the death of a “traitor.” But others would be outraged, people who consider Snowden a patriot and hero.
UNTHINKABLE is such a story, except the central character is based on a man who wrote books about the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and turned up with a bullet not only in his own head, but the heads of his two teen-age kids and the family dog as well.
Philip Marshall, his two teen-age children and the family dog were all found with a fatal bullet wound to the head in their Murphys, California home on February 2nd, 2013. The Calaveras County Sheriff concluded that Marshall had killed his kids, the dog, then himself in a tragic “murder-suicide.” (See the Sheriff’s Report) However, after a week-long investigation, journalist Wayne Madsen concluded that Marshall, the author of several controversial books on the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, and his two kids were victims of professional killers.

UNTHINKABLE: An Airline Captain’s Story – is a dramatization of the events which took place the week preceding and following the murder(s). We have done our best to remain faithful to what is known from both sides and have left the story open-ended because – to date – there is no hard evidence to prove either theory.
Check out this outrageous true story and draw your own conclusions as to who pulled the trigger and what the Marshall “murder-suicide” represents in our Post 9/11 world.
