A new 3x60’ Series following Detective Sergeant Jason Moran, who is the one-man cold case unit for Cook County, Illinois. He’s seen countless jaw-dropping cases through the years, but the surprise of his career came in 2011 when he discovered that eight of John Wayne Gacy’s victims remained unidentified. In 2011, Moran reopened the investigation believing that with today’s technology and good old-fashioned detective work, he could uncover these victims’ identities. But the investigation opened more than a cold case into eight unidentified bodies. Moran’s original appeal produced 170 leads, representing some 80 missing people who still had not been found; 80 grieving families who never received closure; 80 forgotten cases across more than 20 states. Moran thought eight families were still waiting for answers. What he uncovered was a missing persons’ epidemic that spread across America.
