Did you know that the number of murders in Los Angeles County has dropped nearly 75% since the early 90’s? In fact, more than half of the homicides in L.A. went unsolved until the early 2000s. That’s a lot of killers that got away with murder.
That’s why being a crime reporter in a city where so many crimes aren’t solved can be an exhausting and unrewarding job. At least that’s how Christine Pelisek felt when she was working at L.A. Weekly in 2006, until the day came when she picked up on something that would change history in the crime-ridden city.
