PHOENIX — It’s a big mystery with police reports, crime scenes and mounting evidence. But this isn’t your run-of-the-mill true-crime story.
“Locked Inside,” a 12News I-Team documentary, follows the harrowing and heartbreaking story of Christopher Lambeth and those who crossed his path along the way. The documentary digs into a subject that doesn’t often get this type of careful in-depth attention in the mainstream: mental health and care for those who need help.
