Staircase Fans Will Love Netflix's New True Crime Carmel: Who Killed Maria Marta?
Yep, if you liked the streaming platform's grisly murder mystery, The Staircase or The Trials of Gabriel Fernández, you can guarantee this is going to be up your street.
The series follows the murder of Argentinian socialite, María Marta García Belsunce in 2002, whose death was initially thought to be an accident.
Officials originally thought that Maria had fallen in the bathtub and hit her head on a tap.
But in her autopsy, it became apparent that María Marta was actually shot in the head five times and then dumped in the tub.
Maria's death was in all the papers as it was uncovered, with the Argentinian press covering it extensively.
Her husband, Carlos Carrascosa, was the one who found her, and he started out as the prime suspect.
But, later, DNA analysis found that he didn't match any of the blood stains at the scene.
So, who was responsible?!
While the case remains unsolved to this very day, the new series - which will air on Netflix on Thursday, November 5th - will explore all the possible outcomes in four 47 minute chapters.
