Spurred by tips from amateur cyber-sleuths at , “The Killing Season” also looks into similar cases of serial murder of sex workers in Gilgo Beach Long Island NY, Atlantic City, NJ, Daytona Beach, Fla., Oklahoma and New Mexico, and discovers systemic reasons why these cases go unsolved. As the filmmakers were shocked to learn, there are more than 20,000 law enforcement agencies in the US and none are mandated to report homicide data to the FBI’s centralized database.
Numerous so-called TV critics likehave not grasped the full meaning and intention of A&E’s new 8 part series ‘The Killing Season’. A&E’s ‘The Killing Season’ was not produced to solve any of the numerous unsolved murders of sex workers across the USA, the ‘missing missing’. It is intended to shed light on the rampant murders of sex workers by numerous serial killers who often are working as long haul truckers, different serial killers, different states, same job. TV critics like A&E’s ‘The Killing Season’ is the real deal.

In the first four years of its existence, the program helped authorities to identify and arrest 10 men, believed to be responsible for over 30 deaths. Here are 10 known killers who made the open roads of America their grisly hunting grounds:

A&E The Killing Season Episode 6 “A Killer On The Road” Nov 26th at 10:00PM Sarasota Private Investigator Bill Warner Featured on I-4 Serial Killer. ‘The Killing Season’ is an eight-episode docuseries four years in the making. The series, executive produced by Academy Award-winning documentarian Alex Gibney, starts out by digging into the four identified victims found on Gilgo Beach, searching for any clues towards the killer’s identity. But as Zeman and fellow documentarian Rachel Mills (Killer Legends) begin digging for answers, they start uncovering a string of similar murders down the East Coast, stretching from Long Island to Atlantic City to Daytona Beach. Was Long Island only the beginning? The answer is complicated and lends itself to the series’ title. As Zeman and Mills begin to uncover, the serial murder of sex workers has become increasingly frequent across the country. While four murdered women found in a drainage ditch behind a no-tell motel in Atlantic City might seem similar to the four identified victims on Gilgo Beach, their connections have more to do with how our brains work than a multi-city conspiracy to hide a serial killer.
“Part of what we tried to show is our tendency to create patterns where there are none,” Zeman said. “Our tendency to want to think of it as part of some master plan, our tendency to believe that all of these murders are related because that fits in with our need to create patterns. It’s much easier to say that it’s a super serial killer than it is to realize that common individuals are murdering four women here and four women there.” The Killing Season, in some ways is like diving down the best Wikipedia rabbit hole, where one story inevitably spirals into many, each thinly held together by a similar thread. For the series, that thread isn’t just the victims, but it is also the terrifying commonality of serial killers. While investigating a series of murders in Daytona Beach, Zeman and Mills uncover a string of similar murders along the interstate stretching across Florida’s interior, from one coast to the other.
But as it turns out, it was much bigger than this. Unsolved murders stretch across the country, clustering the large network of highways and interstates that matrix the United States. These are the “missing” missing, victims disappear without anyone knowing because no one is looking and no one files a missing persons report. But even beyond this, these are victims that never receive justice (or even simply identification) because their killers cross state lines and information sharing is not mandated for any law enforcement agency in the country. “These killers know police and law enforcement agencies don’t talk to each other,” Zeman said. “They know they don’t share information and they use that information to commit more crimes.” It is this deep-dive into a broken system that makes The Killing Season so compelling and such necessary viewing. As Zeman and Mills zig-zag across the country, uncovering possibly narcoterrorism in New Mexico and potentially three unidentified active serial killers in Cleveland, the series gives just enough answers and tantalizing questions to keep viewers hooked and wanting more.
The series is often tense, as the pair confront potential suspects named in cases, biker gangs and even correspond with a former long-haul truck diver and convicted serial killer, John Robert Williams. There is also plenty of heartbreak, as they take the time to talk with the families of many victims, including the children left behind to wonder why their mother was murdered. This respect for the victims is what grounds The Killing Season, as Zeman and Mills strive to give victims back their humanity, refusing to reduce them to a profession or an addiction and instead showing that they were mothers, daughters, sisters, wives and so much more. And they are conscious and vocal about the fact that this is a dignity the press who report on these crimes do not afford these victims. “We do this thing called victim blaming and this is why these cases don’t get solved,” Zeman said. “You set the narrative as the reporter; as the journalist, you’re the one who’s got to educate. We have to think about sex workers in a different way and if we can do that, we can really start to solve the crime by changing how we think about the crime.” The Killing Season premiered on A&E on Saturday, November 12 at 9pm EST.

A.V.C. Review: Frankly, the more alarmist qualities of this series feel like a reach, given that what Zeman and Mills actually find over the course of these eight episodes is plenty disturbing without the use of grabby names like “Long Island Serial Killer,” “I-4 Killer,” and “Long Haul Killer.” The Killing Season is more affecting when the filmmakers are sitting in living rooms with men and women who themselves exist on the edge of the law and thus can’t get the police to find out what might’ve happened to their missing or dead loved ones. At one point, an investigator, (PI Bill Warner) laments the hype that sprung up around a serial killer in Daytona, Florida, and how it seemed to die down once the media realized that his victims weren’t the kind of sexy spring-breaking co-eds who’d be featured on a Law & Order or CSI episode, but were rather plain-looking middle-aged women who were practically homeless. The point of the series isn’t, ultimately, that we’re all in constant danger of being killed by some maniac. There are, however, some women we rarely notice—many, many of them, in fact—who are targets. We shouldn’t live in fear for ourselves. We should take better care of everyone else.
