Murder between Friends wasn't factual in the least
I was friends with Kerry and Janet Myers and Bill Fontanille. I knew all three for years and can say without reservation none were portrayed in this movie as they were in real life. All three were intelligent college educated people with responsible jobs. The day after this movie was first shown in New Orleans the local paper ran a two page outline listing the blatant discrepancies between the actual individuals and the movies' characters. In the article the movies' producer said they were under no obligation to portray the Myers and Bill in any fashion other than the way they chose to portray them. Bill's attorney, a former football player at the University of Alabama, was played by an actor seemingly attempting to channel Truman Capote. The movie is nothing more than fiction using the names of real people while promoting itself as factual. One of the worst made for television movies I have ever seen.
There is little doubt, 25 years latter, Kerry Myers murdered his wife and attempted to place blame on an innocent Bill Fontanille. Dr. Henry Lee now says the DA's office withheld information that would have cleared Bil of any wrong doing. So sad, but I am happy to report Bill is free and enjoying great success in his life.
