Find out the truth about brutal killings — from the victims’ point of view — in a new series, writes Nur Aqidah Azizi
LUCILLE Gallegos, a mother of three and employee of the month at the apartment complex where she works, is found decapitated.
The perpetrator is not a random killer who happened upon her but instead, lives nearby. His blood is found next to hers.
Find out what happened to Lucille through her fictionalised and dramatised narration based on events that happened prior to the murder in Discovery Channel’s new programme, Stolen Voices, Buried Secrets.
The programme recounts stories of murders that are both chilling and heartbreaking, through the thoughts and voices from “beyond the grave”.
Narrated in first person “by the victim”, this brand new true crime series offers speculation about what happened and allows viewers to piece together the mystery based on clues from investigators, family and friends.
The show, which started yesterday at 7.30pm, has repeats every Friday at 12.30am and 10.30am on Astro Channel 551.
Other cases featured include a 22-year-old mother and her baby who were strangled to death, a typical Midwestern teenager who seemingly vanished into thin air one cold December night, and Tina Marie, who died in a small town in the Georgia countryside.
In one case, a pretty girl-next-door, who always had a kind word and a smile, was found dead in a field near a quarry. Her murder was a mystery for 16 years.
Then there was 25-year-old Nancy Bishop and her husband, happily married and expecting their first child. Life couldn’t be sweeter but they were both gunned down in what seemed to be a professional execution. Was the reason for their deaths much more sinister?
Each story peels back the layers to reveal the facts of each case, with a labyrinth of compelling twists in the plot. Witness these murders unfold as the thoughts of the “victims” reveal the possible sequence of events that led to their deaths in this 13-episode series.
