Atif Rafay and his friend Sebastian Burns are currently serving multiple life sentences for the July 1994 murders of Atif’s parents and sister in Bellingham, Washington. Atif insists that in spite of testimony that he and Sebastian weren’t at the crime scene at the time the murders took place and evidence that someone else may have killed his family he and Sebastian were manipulated by authorities into making false confessions to the triple homicide.

Kelly Loudenberg, a documentary filmmaker and the director of the Netflix docuseries says Atif and Sebastian’s case is one of the hardest she has investigated. “I just felt like what happened to them was so devastating – like their lives had been stolen,” she says in the video above.

Watch Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, “Anatomy of A ‘False Confession,’” to hear how Atif claims he and Sebastian were coerced into making their false confessions.
