On A&E’s The Killing Season tonight, the team investigate the Daytona Beach serial killer — and end up uncovering a horrific threat involving truck-stop prostitutes across the country.
Documentarians Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills are in Florida as they probe the unsolved Daytona Beach case, in which three prostitutes and a fourth woman were killed between December 2005 and December 2007.
All four are thought to have been victim to the same killer, along with three other possible victims.
During filming, Zeman and Mills have a chance encounter with the daughter of one of the victims — which leads them to investigate the owner of a junkyard and a notorious motorcycle gang.
Tonight’s two back-to-back episodes, titled Different Seasons and A Killer on the Road, then leads them on to America’s Highways as they investigate potential serial killers working as long-haul truckers.
And their probe brings to light serious failings by law enforcement which has allegedly allowed killers to remain on the loose.
When Mills asks one man what she would face if she ventured into a long-haul truck-stop by herself, he replies: “You could die, you could be gang-raped…I mean, it’s crazy out here.”
A sex worker tells the pair: “I’ve seen a lot of girls disappear. A lot of my friends have disappeared.”
The episode also sees the pair’s investigation take a turn when a potential killer dies in West Virginia.
Zeman and Mills are probing the case of the Long Island serial killer for the A&E series, who is believed to have murdered 10 to 17 prostitutes.
The Killing Season airs Saturdays at 9/8c on A&E.
