Discovery Channel’s new series, Killing Fields, premieres on Tuesday night. Here’s a preview:
There are beautiful landscapes across America that appear untouched by man, but underneath them lays a sinister reality. Killing Fields is a true-crime documentary series following homicide detectives as they reopen the case of a young woman found in the Louisiana swamplands, a body dumpsite, where the forces of nature often erase evidence of a crime. Tormented by an unfulfilled promise to solve the 1997 homicide investigation, Detective Rodie Sanchez comes out of retirement to rework the case that has haunted him for the past 18-years. Armed with cutting edge investigative technologies, and a new team of driven detectives, the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office is determined to finally close their department’s most infamous cold case.
