Among their fellow inmates is Lowell Lee Andrews, a former honors student at the University of Kansas who has been found guilty of the brutal and calculated murders of his parents and older sister. Much like Dick and Perry’s case, the Andrews case “became the basis for a legal and medical crusade,” in which lawyers attempted, unsuccessfully, to use Andrews’s psychological imbalance as a defense against imprisonment and the death penalty.
