Twenty years ago in a little Nebraskan town called Falls City, a handsome year-old transman with big blue eyes was brutally beaten, raped and murdered in one of the most heinous hate crimes in American history. Brandon left his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska, for Falls City at the age of 20, hoping to start a new life in a community where no one knew him. But upon discovering Brandon was a biological female, Lotter and Nissen became obsessed with proving his anatomy to Lana, forcibly disrobing him in a bathroom on Christmas Eve, and hours later, raping him. On New Years Eve, to prevent him from ever pressing charges, they killed him and two bystanders. Nissen is serving three life sentences at the Lincoln Correctional Center. In , he recanted his original testimony and now admits he murdered the three victims with Lotter as his accomplice. On December 25, mere hours after being sexually assaulted, Brandon faced a demeaning and dehumanizing line of questioning from the Richardson County Sheriff, Charles Laux, when reporting his attackers.
