Max Soffar

In 1981 a strange man convinced the young assistant manager at the Fairlanes Windfern Bowling Alley in Houston, Texas, to let him into the building after closing. This man then murdered three young teens and left another one for dead there. Three weeks later, 24-year-old Max Soffar was arrested for stealing a motorcycle. Max, with the help of detectives, wrote three variations of a confession to the murders.  A trial was held and Max was found guilty of the crimes and sentenced to death.  Through the years people expressed doubt in Max’s guilt, including two federal judges. Judge Cochran of the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals wrote, “ although I do not have great confidence in the reliability or accuracy of the written confession, and hence in his culpability for the triple murders, I was not the chosen fact finder. I find this case quite troubling. There is something very wrong about this case.’” Many people believe that Paul Reid, known as “The Fast Food Serial Killer” actually is responsible for the three teens’ death.  Decide for yourself by listening now…
