‘Crime Scene: The Texas Killing Fields’ True Crime TV Review

Crime Scene: The Texas Killing Fields is a Netflix true crime documentary series told in three parts. It is produced by Imagine Documentaries and directed by Jessica Dimmock.

League City is a sleepy town in the Lone Star State of Texas. However, just within the city limits on a lonely stretch of highway that leads to Houston, there lies a secret. Known as the Texas Killing Fields, that stretch of land has yielded many victims of gruesome murders before they get tossed into the swampland below. While there were numerous others, this documentary follows four victims whose deaths range between the 80s and 90s, shining a light on this bleak land.

This stretch of land is infamous for the number of bodies that have been found within the stretch of land. Though it sits within League City, it also has some odd crossover with the State Police and the Highway Patrol, not to mention how isolated it is. The documentary did a good job of capturing that aspect of it, showing how any killer could make someone vanish.

I also liked how it highlighted the victims and their families. All three parts put great care to share their stories and get perspectives on what happened to their loved ones. It was a compelling tale about how a stretch of land almost become a criminal itself.
