Tony Ciaglia: From Brain Injury Survivor to Serial Killer Pen Pal

Tony Ciaglia was a teenager at summer camp, when a boating accident landed him in a coma.  He spent the next few years relearning how to walk and talk, and navigating a world of medications and teen bullies.  He had a nervous breakdown, and says he would have ended up dead or in a mental ward.  But three things saved him: his supportive family, his love of Elvis, and the pen pal correspondence he started with serial killers.  Tony Ciaglia shares his story, and how he convinced some of the killers to reveal where they hid the bodies.
