John Lennon’s Killer Featured In Documentary

In recent news, the man who murdered John Lennon has been featured in the new documentary of the singer available on Apply TV+.

The three-part series, titled John Lennon: Murder Without A Trial, was added to the streaming platform and has gained much popularity among fans.

It was also revealed that an account of the people who witnessed the musician’s murder has also been included in one of the episodes.

According to the witnesses present on the scene, the killer apologized to them shortly after he took the shot that inevitably killed the star.

The Beatles singer was killed at age 40 by an obsessed fan, later revealed to be Mark David Chapman, who was 68 years old at the time.

The killer followed the musician to his apartment located in New York City on the 8th of December 1980 and opened fire at him.

One onlooker claims that after John fell to the ground, the murderer turned towards them to apologize for putting a damper on their night with his shooting.

According to the witness, they did not know how to react and were feeling nervous about what had just gone down.

However, they mustered up the courage to respond to Chapman, telling him that he may have ruined their night, but also made a mess of his entire life. 

Kiefer Sutherland was asked to narrate the entire documentary of the frontman of the Beatles.

The makers of the series have said that they were granted extensive requests under the Freedom Of Information Act.

Consequently, the District Attorney’s office, the Board Of Parole, and the New York City Police Department cooperated with the makers to help bring the documentary to life. 

It features several interviews with friends of the singer, along with the defense lawyers who represented Chapman.

The detectives, prosecutors, and psychiatrists who interacted with the murderer have also been interviewed and included in the series. 

The new addition to the streaming service also features a taxi driver, Richard Peterson, who was the onlooker in the shooting.

In addition, Jay Hastings, the doorman at the deceased star’s apartment, was contacted for an interview.

It was revealed that Hastings heard the last words uttered by the musician, which were him saying that he was shot.

Moreover, the name of the show was inspired by the minimal investigations conducted into the murder, as Chapman was present at the scene of the crime.

In a shocking turn of events, the killer took responsibility for the crime as soon as the police arrived at the scene. 

As a result of the incident, he was sentenced to serve time in prison for twenty years to life for committing second-degree murder. 

In 2020, the 68-year-old took to making a public apology to Yoko Ono, the wife of the deceased Beatles hitmaker, during a parole hearing.

He said that it was a selfish act for him to murder the singer and that he was sorry for causing her so much pain. 

He ended his apology by admitting that he often thinks about his crime and regrets upsetting everyone.
