NEVADA, USA — Park Ranger Mike Meyer patrolled the not-so-tranquil waters of Lake Mead during the go-go ‘80s, a time of cocaine, powerboats and mob hits.

We’re telling the story of a series of hammer attacks in the Denver area in January 1984 that left four people dead …

Attacks that terrified a community … 

And investigations that were ice cold for decades before a breakthrough in 2018 that led to the identification of a suspect.

It’s a story that will unfold in three parts.

Part I consists of five episodes. Listen to those episodes here

This is part II. (If you want a shortcut to all of part II, find it here.)

Part III will roll out in 2021 and follow new developments in the case.
