"Lovers' Lane Murders" on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 9/8c and 10/9c and Friday, Feb. 12 at 9/8c and 10/9c


In the premiere episode, after U.S. Naval Academy graduate Cathy Thomas and her girlfriend Becky Dowski are murdered in a lovers’ lane area on the Colonial Parkway in Virginia, authorities are left to wonder if this is a hate crime or the birth of something even more ominous.

In the following episode, with Cathy Thomas and Becky Dowski’s Colonial Parkway homicide still unsolved, a new double murder less than a year later leaves law enforcement rattled. Is the double-slaying of David Knobling and Robin Edwards in another lovers’ lane area connected to the first case?

In the third episode airing Friday, an entire region is on edge after college students Cassandra Hailey and Keith Call go missing from a lovers’ lane area in Northern Virginia. Is this third double homicide on the Colonial Parkway an unnerving coincidence or proof of a serial killer?

In the concluding episode, when Annamaria Phelps and Daniel Lauer turn up dead in a lovers’ lane area close to the Colonial Parkway, many in law enforcement are convinced that this fourth double murder in three years proves the work of a serial killer.
