Crime Scene is back with a new, unsettling installment.
After The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel and The Times Square Killer, Joe Berlinger's documentary series is returning with The Texas Killing Fields. Helmed by Emmy Award-winning director Jessica Dimmock (Flint Town), the season investigates a string of unsolved murders in an area between Houston and Galveston.
Four women's bodies turned up in this area, a patch of land called Calder Road, in the 1980s and early '90s, and their families are still desperate for justice. Over the decades since these grisly discoveries, police have allegedly lost evidence, rendering them unable to pursue any real leads in the four cases.
"You gave him the green light to continue killing our girls," says one grieving father. "Families that go through this, we never give up."
"Our loved ones deserve justice," says another woman.
Over the course of Crime Scene: The Texas Killing Fields's three episodes, one father's "determined pursuit of justice for the victims drives the series as it delves into five decades of the area’s unsettling history, uncovering a pattern of eerie connections and missed opportunities surrounding the Calder Road cold cases that may, at long last, lead investigators to the truth."
Crime Scene: The Texas Killing Fields debuts on Netflix November 29.
