Infamous Helmer’s Violent Act

Douglas McGrath (“Infamous”) is writing and will direct the true crime story “A Violent Act” by Alec Wilkinson as his next project reports UK Teletext.

The project follows a man who murdered his probation officer before heading on a crime spree of carjackings, robberies and murders. Eventually the man was caught by an Indian tracker.

McGrath says that it’s taken him a while to write the story because he “wants to do it just right”. The book scored acclaim due its presenting of the crimes in a very precise and factual style, allowing the reader to come up with many of his own judgements.
