ET has your first look at the new installment of Discovery Channel’s true crime docuseries, Killing Fields, which travels to Virginia in Murder Isle.
After two seasons in Louisiana, as police tried to solve the cold case of a murdered college student, the series relocates to the Isle of Wight in Virginia.
The isolated farmland community is the setting of a 2004 chilling, cold-blooded homicide, when 28-year-old Carrie Singer was found beaten to death and half naked in a field.
With the residents haunted by the unsolved murder, the county sheriff’s office has decided to re-open the case with the hope to find some real answers. Under the command of Lieutenant Thomas Potter, the case’s original lead investigator Randy Patrick works with a team of skilled investigators as well as a young rookie who believes he can bring a fresh take to the case.
Once again, the series from Emmy-winning producer Tom Fontana and Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson is shot in real time as the team works around-the-clock to re-examine critical evidence from the crime scene, utilizing new incredible technology that didn’t exist at the time of Singer’s death.
Killing Fields: Murder Isle premieres Thursday, Jan. 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery.
