Can anyone help with these true crime movies?

I am looking for the basis of these movies based on true crimes:

Moment of Truth: Abduction of Innocence
With a Vengeance
The Toolbox Murders (1978)
5 Dark Souls
Final Appeal
In the Shadow of a Killer
In My Daughter’s Name
Two Faces of Evil
Last House on the Left
A Kiss So Deadly

If you can help me, please email me! Thanks! Also, if you know of any other true crime movies that are not on this list and that I have not covered, give me a holler! I know I am missing a lot! (But not the very popular ones that Lifetime shows a lot – I know of those and am working on them).
