In the month of July, we are celebrating Evidence Locker’s third birthday and our 150th episode. With this in mind, we decided on a Blockbuster theme. To kick things off, we look into the true crime case behind Steven Spielberg’s film, Munich. Palestinian militant group Black September took nine 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team hostage during the Summer Olympics of 1972. The world watch as events unfolded, and it ended in the death of all the hostages and a German police officer, as well as five of the eight terrorists. To avenge their murders, Operation Wrath of God was born, a covert mission to take out everyone who had played a part in the Munich Massacre.
