Homicide Hunter is a non-fiction investigative series of murder cases told through the personal experience of retired detective, Lieutenant Joe Kenda. With his personal interviews and compelling storytelling style, Kenda captivates us with the details of a different investigation each week, beginning from when he got the homicide call to when the case was closed. Unlike many true-crime shows, this series delivers the realities of the emotional and psychological effects of a murder on the investigator. Set in Colorado, a state known for its suburban lifestyle, these murders are all the more compelling because they are stories of homicide that can happen to anybody.
The naked body of a vibrant young mother is found frozen solid in a deserted cemetery; after the case goes cold, Lt. Joe Kenda reopens the investigation and recognizes the sinister hallmark of a serial killer.
