(Silver Spring, MD)- As America's last true frontier, Alaska is an ideal destination for people wanting to experience the intrinsic beauty of isolated nature - but its wilderness also provides the perfect setting for keeping secrets. People go missing as if swallowed by the elements, but often there's something far more sinister to blame. This one hour-special tells the true story of serial killer Robert Hansen, an experienced hunter who sought the "cold rush" of something more challenging to feed his killer appetite: human prey. ALASKA: ICE COLD KILLERS premieres Wednesday, January 25 at 9 PM (ET), followed by the world premiere of Investigation Discovery's DARK MINDS at 10 PM (ET), a chilling series chronicling the search for serial killers, using a convicted serial killer.
"ALASKA: ICE COLD KILLERS portrays a side of Alaskan life that only Investigation Discovery has the credentials to cover, proving that among the wilds of nature, humans are the most dangerous predators of all," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery.
For decades, Robert Hansen kidnapped and tortured women and flew them out to his remote cabin, where he released them into the harsh Alaskan wilderness only to hunt them down for sport. Choosing his prey carefully, Hansen targeted strippers and prostitutes, transient women where in many cases, the victims weren't even reported to the police. ALASKA: ICE COLD KILLERS recounts the dozens of murders that Hansen is suspected of committing and tells the chilling tale of the only woman who miraculously escaped the clutches of this sadistic madman.
