His case dates back to 1977, when at that time Billy was jailed for the robbery, kidnapping and rape of three women in Ohio. But this would not last long since after a psychiatric evaluation, it would be elucidated that Milligan had 24 personalities. His psychologist at the time stated “Ragen stole the money and Adalana raped the women.”

The first season of “The Crowded Room” will have 10 episodes and although there is still no release date and many things are not known about the project, the expectation for this series continues to grow, especially thanks to the actor from “Uncharted” already the participation of Amanda Seyfried.
