Netflix has released a trailer for its upcoming documentary called ‘Monsters Inside: The 24 faces of Billy Milligan’.

This current documentary is part of a host of true crime documentaries that have been released by Netflix.

The documentary will focus on serial rapist Billy Milligan, who brought terror to Ohio State University in the year 1977.

In the same year, Milligan was arrested for kidnapping, robbing and raping three women at the university.

The prominent aspect of the documentary is centred on the complexity surrounding the highly publicised court case that followed the crimes as Milligan was diagnosed with multiple personality disorder, which is now known as dissociative identity disorder.

The psychiatrists who diagnosed him with the disorder determined that Milligan had as many as 24 distinct multiples within his mind.

The case witnessed a first-of-its-kind legal strategy that found Milligan innocent by reason of insanity.

Netflix made the following statement in regards to the upcoming documentary, “Over 40 years since the landmark verdict, nearly everyone is still asking questions: Were Billy’s multiple personalities indeed controlling his actions, or were they a convenient cover for a brilliant narcissistic sociopath? To what extent should charismatic criminals benefit from their notoriety? And were Billy’s most violent crimes still to come?”

The documentary, which is directed by Olivier Megaton, will be available on Netflix on September 22nd.
