How the unlikely events surrounding Souza unfolded, along with the unusual twist that ends his story, are re-enacted on this weekend’s edition of Investigation Discovery’s “True Nightmares,” a weekly series in its second season of presenting gruesome stories of murder and mayhem based on real events.
