Thomas "Bart" Whitaker seemed to have a happy childhood, with loving parents and a brother who adored him. But when he was 23 years old, he masterminded a plot to have his family gunned down in their own home. "I wanted revenge for being alive, and I blamed them for that. I blamed them for who I was, instead of blaming me," he told ABC News. (Courtesy Kent Whitaker)
