He was convicted for committing 49 separate murders, making him the second most prolific serial killer in United States history by confirmed murders cases.

The second episode follows the case of serial killer and prostitute Aileen Wuornos, who murdered seven men in Florida in 1989 and 1990 by shooting them at point-blank range. She was sentenced to death for six of the murders and was executed by lethal injection on 9th October 2002.

The third and fourth episodes are both about Keith Hunter Jesperson, who gained the moniker “happy face killer” because his frightening letters to the press about his crimes were signed with smiley faces.

He murdered at least eight women in the United States during the early 1990s and many of his victims were sex workers who he strangled.

His last crime led to his capture and despite claiming to have murdered up to 185 people, only eight have been confirmed. He is now serving a life sentence without parole at the Oregon State Penitentiary.

Each episode has interviews, news reports, re-enactments and real crime scene pictures. The detectives start from scratch to explain each case and the investigations that led to the harrowing cases being solved. Some of scenes show the detectives breaking down in tears as they revisit the frightening murders they helped solve.

Catching Killers is available to watch on Netflix now.
