Bart Whitaker, center, told ABC News that from a young age he felt like a failure, like he could never live up to his parents' standards. As a result, he says he created an alter-ego and pretended to be the perfect son. But by the time he was supposed to be graduating from college, his anger toward his family developed into a desire to have them killed. (Courtesy Kent Whitaker)
