When a single mom is murdered at the local Taco Bell in small Southern town, cops, investigators and residents are shocked. Could the new guy in town be the one who did it? Yes, the cops say, he is. Crime solved. But then another murder happens. And another. In the end — four bodies, two convictions, and one man with a life sentence for something he likely did not do. Welcome to Murderville.
In this six-episode series from The Intercept, investigative reporters Liliana Segura and Jordan Smith uncover what happens when rural law enforcement and state investigators lock up their first suspect, while another man is free to kill.
Murderville shines an investigative light deep into rural Georgia where racial lines are as obvious as train tracks, cops are never questioned, and being an outsider can get you locked up with no chance for justice — even when the evidence could prove your innocence.
