The Murder of Blenda Gay

In December 1976 Roxanne Gay  killed her husband Blenda Gay, an NFL Football player.  Roxanne claimed that her husband had repeatedly abused her, and initially pled self-defense.  Feminists led by Gloria Steinem rallied and paid for her attorney, seeking to turn her case into a symbol on behalf of battered women everywhere.  Yet something happened along the way: Roxanne fired the high priced attorney and changed her plea from self-defense to temporary insanity.  She and her daughter continue to get large monthly payments from the NFL. Join filmmaker Ian Mccrudden as he explores this true crime story througharchival footage and audio tapes, current interviews with family members, law enforcement, attorneys for the prosecution and defense, coaches and staff of the Eagles organization to get to the truth.
