In the premiere episode, a late-night auto/pedestrian accident takes a mysterious turn when a woman's body is found beside a lonely stretch of highway. When the coroner suspects foul play, Kenda is called in to solve the second homicide case of his career. But along the way, the rookie detective will learn a painful lesson.
The storytelling process of HOMICIDE HUNTER is a personal journey for Kenda as he chips away at painful memories that have long been suppressed. “Someone once said that truth is stranger than fiction. As we embark upon another season, I certainly found that to be true,” said Lt. Joe Kenda. “Yet here we are. More stories from the lives of ordinary people who became entangled in extraordinary events, and a therapeutic journey for me from a life of investigating violent crime. I hope you enjoy these windows into people's lives and the events that changed them forever.
