This Week on “Very Bad Men”on September 11, 2012 in Pop Culture, Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Two new episodes of “Very Bad Men” are coming out this week. The first looks at Ernie Christie:
EPISODE 2: “Haunted”
For 22 years, Sam Christie has lived with a horrible secret. After he starts seeing ghosts, he decides to confront the past and calls police. When he was young, he claims he witnessed a brutal torture and murder of a young woman. When the nightmares start tearing him apart, he decides to unburden his soul. Humboldt County Sherriff’s Office must open a cold file and undertake the challenging recovery of forensic evidence to prove Sam’s claims. Soon they find evidence of a corpse—but who is it? And who is the killer? Are there more bodies buried in the woods of Sam’s childhood home?
To be honest, I’m not familiar with this case, and am not able to find much about it online. So I don’t know if he qualifies as a serial killer or not.
The second episode profiles Sam Pirrera, a Canadian who surely does qualify as one.
EPISODE 7: “The Steel Town Slayer”
A woman makes a gruesome discovery in the driveway of her estranged husband’s house: human body parts.
When police arrive onto the scene in the suburbs of Hamilton, Ontario, they are ill prepared for the horror within the house. They find human dismembered remains, painstakingly separated into boxes and coolers. Police are hard-pressed to even determine the identity. The homeowner, who works ata local steel mill, is arrested but refuses to speak. Police believe he is hiding the truth, but have no proof. But when the victim is finally identified, another mystery emerges. Could he have killed before?
Very Bad Men airs Thursday at 10:00 and 10:30 eastern time.
