Delbert’s of a family of 4 brothers (the other 3 being Roscoe, Lyman and William – Bill, for short), working as semi-literate farmers, and living together in isolation in a ramshackle shack, until William’s death. The subsequent police investigation and medical examiner’s autopsy suggested Bill may not have died from natural causes, and Delbert was arrested on charges of second-degree murder. Under questioning by police, Delbert appears to have waived his rights and signed a confession, but, it seems he might not have been competent, and was coerced into doing so. The film explores possible motives for the crime, from mercy-killing (Bill was ill at the time), to progressively more outré hypotheses. It also shows how residents of the rural community of Munnsville, NY rallied to the support of one of their own (residents previously considered the Wards as social outcasts), against what they felt were intrusive ‘big-city’ police and a district attorney involved in an election, who might’ve used the death to help bolster his candidacy.
Plot: This documentary by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky details the murder trial of Delbert Ward. Delbert was a member of a family of four elderly brothers, working as semi-literate farmers and living together in isolation from the rest of society until William’s death.

Who Wants To Sit Through This Kind Of Stuff?
I’ll grant you this might have been an interesting true-life story, but that doesn’t mean it was an entertaining “documentary”” and worth watching. The Jerry Springer Show might be entertaining but if it is so degrading, profane and just plan ugly, who would watch it? Not me.
That’s how I felt about this film. This is just plain too ugly to watch. By the way, beware of those labels about “true story” because films are often manipulated to work to the filmmaker’s agenda by cutting footage he doesn’t want you to see.
You get the gist of this story in the first 20 minutes, a real picture of these guys who many will assume, with their elitist attitudes, live down South somewhere. Well, it’s in New York State.
Regardless, who wants to listen to backwards hillbillies from a small town repeat the same things over and over and over, including a bunch of profanity in their ignorant speech? That’s entertainment? No, it is not. Watching a pig get killed is entertainment? I think not. Incest and other fun topics all discussed? No thanks.
No, this is one documentary that is too sordid and too unpleasant to watch. Did I finish it? No, to be honest, I did not….and don’t regret it.
