-Four-Part Docuseries Airs for Two Consecutive Nights Beginning Monday, March 5 at 9/8c -
(Silver Spring, Md.) - After a series of more than 170 combined incidences of burglary, rape and murder from 1974 to 1986, California's most sought-after serial killer garnered several titles: The East Area Rapist, The Original Night Stalker and-most notably-The Golden State Killer. With a serial killer case spanning a decade, one person can't solve it alone; which is why Investigation Discovery (ID) calls upon forensic expert Paul Holes to join former law enforcement, citizen sleuths, civil district attorneys and victims themselves to expose the aging killer before he dies. In a two-night special event premiering Monday March 5 at 9/8c on ID, THE GOLDEN STATE KILLER: IT'S NOT OVER explores evidence through a new lens with increased DNA technology, audio recording analysis and geographic profiling.
Building upon the Sacramento FBI's 2016 national campaign for new leads and Michelle McNamara's upcoming Golden State Killer novel, I'll Be Gone in the Dark, ID packs forty years' worth of evidence into a four-part special in the hopes that both fresh and veteran eyes will get a new 360-degree view of the complicated case. Interviewees featured in this series include Carol Daly, an original Sacramento County investigator of the Golden State Killer; Jane Carson-Sandler, a survivor of the fifth known attack; Debbi Domingo, a teenager at the time of her mother's murder with a continued commitment to working with law enforcement to find the killer; and Keith Komos, a citizen sleuth with no personal connection to the case but a resourcefulness and a sense of urgency needed to find a resolution.
