Across America, there are isolated places that appear untouched. In these desolate and sprawling areas – known as killing fields – dozens of deaths remain mysteries, baffling anyone daring enough to investigate. On Thursday, January 4, Discovery will head to Isle of Wight County, Virginia to investigate a brutal cold case in the third season of the network’s hit true-crime series with the “Killing Fields: Murder Isle” episode.
Isle of Wight is an isolated farmland community in Virginia – miles from nearly everything and everyone. But the quiet community was marked by a gruesome homicide its residents cannot forget. In the summer of 2004, 28-year-old Carrie Singer was found beaten to death and half naked in a field. But who would have wanted her dead? And why could they never connect any DNA with the actual crime?
The mysterious case never went anywhere. However, it has haunted lead investigator Randy Patrick for over a decade. Utilizing the latest cutting-edge technology, the Isle of Wight 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, Randy works with a team of skilled investigators as well as a young rookie who believes he can bring a fresh take to the case. Shot in real time, the team works around-the-clock to re-examine critical evidence from the crime scene with incredible technology that didn’t exist at the time of Carrie’s death. In a stunning twist, detectives receive information about a second homicide from the same time period possibly connected to the case. Could Carrie’s death in fact be linked to a double homicide?
