Colorado in 1994 and Cheyenne Mountain High teacher Barbara Lewis was rushed to hospital after she began choking whilst at the school where she taught . At hospital medics struggled to save her life as her badly burned throat started to swell up and block her airways. Doctors were forced to carry out emergency surgery after the educator’s esophagus became restricted to less than the size of a pen.

Detectives worked out that Lewis was poisoned in her classroom through the bottle of water she was drinking. Someone had put sodium hydroxide crystals in the bottle whilst it was unattended.

Sodium hydroxide is sometimes known as  lye or caustic soda and it can cause very severe

‘Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda’ Season Finale: Can Serial Rapist Be Stopped? (SNEAK PEEK)

“Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda” closes its sixth season with a race against time for Lt. Joe Kenda and his Sex Crimes Unit. In “The Monster Awakes” airing tonight at 10 p.m. on Investigation Discovery, information from a crime scene makes Kenda suspicious.

In the preview video clip posted below, Kenda says it’s highly unusual in a sexual assault case, particularly a rape for the perpetrator to stop and rob the victim of valuables – even if it’s in a private home. The victim told the investigative team that the man took her engagement and wedding rings.

That would be Julie Smith, whose husband had already left for work, leaving her alone in their home. Kenda surmises that the rapist did some surveillance of the Smiths’ residence, noting the times that Julie was likely to be by herself.

Besides the oddity of the robbery, on top of the rape, Kenda and his Sex

Joe Kenda defamation lawsuit offers a glimpse behind the scenes of Homicide Hunter

Are Joe Kenda's cases real 2

Probably the all-time biggest knock against reality TV is that it isn’t real at all. Plenty of shows buck up against the genre’s norms–for example, History’s Alone, in which ten survivalists are dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot with nothing more than a handful of supplies and their wits, only looks fake if you’re an especially cynical person. And other shows are so obviously engineered and over-the-top (here’s looking at you, the entire Love Hip Hop franchise) that fans are encouraged to guffaw when the writer’s room shows.

Homicide Hunter is definitely in the former camp. But former Colorado Springs homicide detective Joe Kenda’s track record on the force–356 murders solved over 23 years, out of a possible 387 cases–is so unusual that it almost invites skepticism by

Lt. Joe Kenda looks to Homicide Hunter for relief from the ‘river of death’ in his brain

Are Joe Kenda's stories true 3

Homicide Hunter‘s Joe Kenda is as unassuming and matter-of-fact in real life as he is on television. The Investigation Discovery mainstay was long retired from the Colorado Springs Police Department when reality TV producers came knocking on his door, and uninterested in any attention from the outside world. In fact, while fans may sometimes wonder “Are Joe Kenda’s stories true?”, it’s clear from Kenda’s demeanor that the relevant question to ask is “How true are his stories?”

Homicide Hunter producers got a taste of Kenda’s respect for his life’s work when they first sat down to film him–and presented Kenda with a script. “I’m not an actor,” he told them. “I’m a policeman. If you want me to tell you about this case, I will. If you want me to
