Crimes That Shook The World Series 2 Premiere

DISCOVERY CHANNEL – Fridays from 22 January, 7.30pm

A serial killer is someone who murders a number of people over a period of time, normally using the same method again and again. Some will continue their reign of terror for years, whereas others will murder many victims over a relatively short period of time. This series opens the files of infamous crimes and takes a look at the most shocking serial killer stories from around the world. Kicking off the series will be the Chessboard Killer, who charted his crimes on a chessboard, filling in 62 of the 64 squares by the time he was caught. Also examined is the shocking case of the Monster of Florence, who for 17 years preyed on young couples, committing brutal murder on seven occasions in and around the city.
