Christopher Pittman is in jail in South Carolina. He was just 12 when he killed his grandparents, Joe and Joy Pittman, then set fire to their house. He is serving a 30 year life sentence for their murder. However, his parents and a number of leading experts believe that Christopher is innocent and that the real culprit is the antidepressant sertraline.

And he showed all the signs of drug toxicity leading up to the killing and immediately afterwards. Here is a link to the film page where you will find a documentary about his case:
