Synopsis

One early winter day in 1992, paper mill worker Tom Monfils went missing. Eighteen hours later, he was found dead at the bottom of a pulp vat. A 40-pound weight was attached to a jump rope tied around his neck.

"It appeared to be a homicide immediately," Det. Randy Winkler says. Since it had to have occurred inside the paper mill - a locked building with 24-hour security - a list of suspects was quickly generated. At the top of this list was a coworker Tom had recently butted heads with in a very public way. Everyone expected an arrest within days.

It took more than two years.

Finally in 1995 (overshadowed by the OJ Simpson trial), six of his co-workers were convicted of conspiracy to murder him. New evidence 25 years later puts forth a different theory -- that it was suicide.

"Beyond Human Nature" is filming on location in Wisconsin, USA in 2014-2018
