'How I Caught My Killer' Trailer Reveals How Victims Help Solve Their Murders
The true crime documentary series hits theaters January 12.
Hulu has released a new trailer for How I Caught My Murderer, an upcoming docuseries that will explore true crime stories and how victims can help solve their murders. However, there's nothing supernatural at play, as the docuseries focus on the clues left by the victims and how they help detectives catch the killer.
The trailer begins by explaining that there are still approximately 10,000 murders unsolved in the United States each year. While that number is horrific, the trailer highlights how victims can help catch the killer by leaving enough evidence for the police to track down. The docuseries will unravel nine true crime stories, revealing the small details that led to the case's big breakthrough. Everything from a step-counting app to someone's social media presence can be used to solve a murder, and How I Caught My Murderer explores the most unexpected clues a victim can leave behind.
In addition to recounting the development of the nine cases, "My Murderer Caught" also included emotional interviews with the victims' friends and family. The trailer showcases some of these moments, highlighting how the docuseries will force viewers to confront their fear of losing a loved one in such a tragic event Fashion. The interviews also show how small changes in behavior can trigger those close to us, leading them to help investigate and ultimately solve a murder.
The series synopsis also reveals how I caught the case chosen in the first season of My Killer, and also exposes the flaws in the American legal system. Typically, police forces pay less attention to crimes that affect certain marginalized groups. As a result, we have a clear demographic pattern of unsolved murders. No victim should be responsible for solving their own murder, and the show seems to be aware of that, which is an interesting angle to explore.
All nine episodes of How I Caught My Killer are coming to Hulu on January 12. Check out the new trailer and series synopsis below.
How I Caught My Killer is a true-crime docu-series that highlights the real-life stories behind unique homicide cases with in-depth interviews, authentic archival material and cinematic recreations all packaged together into a fresh spin in the genre. Whether it’s a fraught letter to a friend, an urgent text message detailing a heated argument, a private diary entry describing a horrifying experience, or an ominous social media post revealing a motive for murder…these victims all leave a case-breaking clue that will one day help to solve their crime. Every curated case details a complex portrait of a human being whose life was cut short by a killer that would have escaped justice if it hadn’t been for the victim’s own actions. Ultimately, the twists and turns of the investigations into these victim-solved crimes expose an awful truth in America today: our systemic failures as a nation all too frequently deny many citizens justice. Each episode forces us to confront the harsh reality that our system is blind to many underserved and invisible communities that make up a disproportionate percentage of the people who lose their lives to homicide every year.
