Former Colorado Springs homicide detective finds good hunting on TV

As a lieutenant, Kenda’s specialty was catching killers.

Over his career, he solved 356 of 387 murders, boasting a 92 percent solve rate. His unscripted narration tells viewers how.

“Reality is actually more interesting than fiction, and it’s often more bizarre,” Kenda said.

Unlike popular cop shows like “CSI”and “NCIS,” which can distort facts to create drama, the details in “Homicide Hunter” are genuine, pulled directly from public police reports. The reports are used to re-enact the events and are sometimes supplemented with archived interviews from Kenda’s cop days.

Viewers may even recognize parts of the city in photos, aerial and street scenes, and interviews. The only part of the show not filmed in Colorado Springs is the re-enactments, which are done in Tennessee, Kenda said.

Nothing is Hollywooded.

“What they present is actually what happened,” Kenda said. “They take out the profanity, but other than that it’s whatever I say.”

The show is in its sixth

Danielle Stislicki: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

A 28-year-old Farmington Hills, Michigan woman who has been missing since December 2 was described as a “people person” who’s “responsible and conscientious.”

After Danielle Stislicki vanished, her loved ones organized a major social media effort to find her. Police suspect that Stislicki met with foul play, and they searched the home of a local security guard, although he has not been arrested.

Although police initially approached Stislicki’s disappearance as a missing persons case, they now say: “All available information and evidence leads investigators to believe Danielle Stislicki was the victim of a crime.”

Stislicki’s loved ones are hoping someone reading this can provide any information that will help them learn what happened to Danielle, a young woman whose family says would never have disappeared without a trace on her own.

Here’s what you need to know:

‘Killing Fields’ Season 2: Show Returns Jan. 3, What About Eugenie …

Killing Fields

Fans of Discovery’s Killing Fields were left with even more questions than the Detectives of Iberville Parish when the show’s first season ended without a killer in custody for the cold case murder of Eugenie Boisfontaine, but now, they may get to see a conclusion to the case when the show returns for season 2.

The series is headed back to Discovery on Jan. 3 with all-new episodes, and will once again see Detectives Rodie Sanchez and Aubrey St. Angelo, as well as the others, all once again revisiting the case of Eugenie’s unsolved murder, but also having to shift their focus to other cases as well.

 In a preview clip for the new season, both men still seem to be struggling with the fact that they haven’t been able to find Eugenie’s killer, especially Rodie, who has devoted the better

A Killer’s Twisted Promise: ‘If I Said I’m Going to Come Kill You, I Was Going to Kill You’

Brian Radel placed loyalty and his bond above all else.

As he explains  in Monday night’s episode of People Magazine Investigates, on Investigation Discovery, he didn’t kill Lauri Waterman in 2004, in a small Alaska town, because he wanted to kill her.

Radel killed Waterman because a trusted mutual friend asked him to do it.

“If I said I’m going to come kill you, I was going to kill you,” Brian says in Monday’s episode. “I never broke my word.”

He adds: “Whatever I said I was going to do, everybody who knew me knew that I would follow through with it whether I liked it or not.”

Waterman, 48, was killed after Radel kidnapped her from the family’s home in the tight-knit island town of Craig, Alaska, while her daughter, Rachelle, and husband were away.

He planned to stage a drunk-driving
