DESCRIPTION:
(from National Geographic Channel's press release, January 2017) The world's waters have become a Wild West, where criminals can operate with impunity largely beyond the reach of law enforcement. In 2014, cell-phone footage was posted on YouTube from a mysterious address in Fiji, showing an unthinkable crime - four gruesome murders at sea. The crime footage went viral and made international headlines for its disturbingly callous brutality. Four men are filmed clinging to floating wreckage in the middle of the sea. Shots ring out. And the men are killed one by one. Perhaps just as chilling as the bloodshed are the onlookers who are heard laughing and shown smiling directly into the camera lens. In National Geographic's LAWLESS OCEANS, which premieres Tuesday, January 10, beginning at 9/8c with double-stacked episodes, internationally renowned special investigator Karsten von Hoesslin is on a worldwide trail to piece together the truth behind these mysterious murders. Relentless in his pursuit for clues and angles, Karsten tracks down and interviews eye witnesses, material witnesses and families of the victims while he seeks the support of fellow experts to determine who committed these crimes, where and when they occurred and how and why this happened. Along the way, painting a dark, grim picture of our lawless oceans, Karsten encounters drug smuggling, people trafficking, illegal fishing, and piracy. Karsten, who has more than 10 years of experience investigating crimes undercover and is an expert in profiling, interrogation, surveillance and field-intelligence gathering (to name a few), is prepared for a dogged marathon of an investigation. This is, without a doubt, his most dangerous case to date - one that's epic in scope and one that will dramatically challenge all of his skills as an investigator.
