The family of Katharina Brow has stated that they are sad to have not been contacted by the producers of the movie ‘Conviction.’ It should be noted that the story of Conviction is entirely true and revolves around Kenneth Waters who faced allegations of killing waitress Katharina Brow. Meanwhile the children of Katharina Brow spoke at a press conference on Thursday. Katharina Brow’s children also had attorney Gloria Allred accompanying them at the press conference.

“We believe that a proper respect for the murder victim’s family should have been shown… That could have been demonstrated by the film’s representatives contacting the family to learn how they felt about the making of a film which would remind them of the terrible pain and suffering that they endured because of the loss of their mother”, Gloria Allred said.

One of the worries of the children of Katharina Brow is the question of where the money from the movie Conviction will go. It has been learnt that the children of Katharina Brow expect the directors of Conviction to put aside a portion of the money to back the efforts of solving the case of Katharina Brow’s murder so that the real culprit could be put behind bars.

Conviction depicts the account of the sister of Kenneth Water. She struggled hard to get a degree in law following the conviction of her brother and ultimately got the conviction of her brother overturned. Furthermore the film shows that the children of Katharina Brow still required to be checked with since Kenneth Water was convicted of Katharina Brow’s murder.
